Steering wheel

Hi, I just noticed one thing suddenly today.
I found that the steering wheel of my car becomes lighter than before suddenly.
I said suddenly because i have not changed rim size, not pumping tyres, nothing I have done except an oil change, just an oil change and oil filter.
But after I have done that oil change, the steering wheel was still heavier than now.
I am wondering....why would the steering wheel suddenly becomes lighter?
Sign of something going wrong?
Thanks in advanced.

Have you been switching between cars a lot more than you did before? I find that when I switch from my dad's electronic power steering powered SUV to my M-Sport, it feels like the steering on my car is heavier, and vice versa. However, after a short while you get used to it and it feels normal again.

I got the same E92 as you have.
Well, i havent switched car a lot. But just really felt the steering a bit lighter than before.
Just wonder if it is a sign of something going wrong,
or maybe as said, if i am really getting stronger arm now?
