This is probably true. I met one of the marketing executives at the Drive for Team USA event for the F30 and I asked him straight up, WHY they did this.

He told me because BMW market research suggested they could sell more cars that way because women generally hated the stiffer steering feel and most likely wouldn't let their husbands buy bimmers because they hated driving them.

The way BMW sees it, its a win win for them because wives will say Yes and men just have to suck it up. Woman's world, I just figured it out.
