Are you sure it wasn't because the E46 330i had old shocks? OEM shocks give out quite early...and make a car seem really feel floaty-boaty...even with sways, strut tower bars, and other suspension bits added on.
Suffice to say the stock for stock...new parts for new parts...an E90 and E46 both handle quite well. I'm just not sure I would agree with an overgeneralization that the E46 doesn't handle very well...which is the impression you seem to give. *shrug*
