Point well taken. I do think reviewers tend to blow things out of proportion (whether well-intentioned or b/c manfacturers are giving them free meals, accommodations, etc....).

What do you think about current BMW steering? I thought the 3-series (from 2 generations ago?) had the most perfect steering....
