BMW has gone to electric assist for its power steering (as has Porsche), which seems to reduce feedback by a substantial amount. The numbering system started going haywire with the e27 generation, when the later 320i cars came with a reduced capacity 1.8 litre engine. This continued with the e36 generation, when the 323i actually came with a 2.5 litre engine, as opposed to the 2.3 capacity one would suspect. The same was true for the e46 323i.
