I think I may have found your problem.
Regardless, I don't find the steering to be as bad as you claim. My X3 35i with ZPT and DHP feels pretty damn similar to my 09 328i with ZPT. And I've found the engine note to be sonorous and rather enjoyable. Of course, I was somehow able to find time to teat drive the car before I ordered it, so I did have a good idea of what to expect.
