I've driven them over the years, but i can't recall the 535i being a bad handling car. Please let me know if you are referring to the electronic steering or if its more of a chassis issue..
Speaking for myself, nothing really wrong with the 535i steering or handling with my M-sport and Adaptive Drive. Depends what you really want from a BMW that is clearly aimed at the luxury segment, with a hint of sportiness. OK, maybe the 5-series is softened a bit, but for many that is a good thing and couldn't have come quickly enough.

I can't see any radical changes taking place, probably just tweaks to the steering and suspension setup, like we normally get with LCI revisions.
