Correct. So if modern tire/wheel/suspension setups allow for a higher limit of grip than the soft E46 system was tested on back in the mid to late 90's, then that would mean more weight would shift to the front axle due to Newton's first law. With more weight on the front, it would have more grip. And with less weight on the back, the backs have less grip and earlier locking. This would mean that making the system more front biased than it left the factory would make sense for a wheel/suspension setup that is capable of decelerating quicker. This is of course assuming BMW tuned the braking perfectly for the stock setup. Stock setup was also most likely standard mom dad tires, while I'm sure most of us are on some form of performance tire.
