steering stiff....is it ok?

For the last couple of years I have owned a 2008 e91 edition Msport which had electric power steering which was fine. I have just updated my car to a 2010 e91 business edition Msport and the steering on it is noticeably stiffer. On looking this car has a power steering reservoir so I am thinking it may have the adaptive steering, if it has should this be stiffer than the electric?

All e9x have old fashion hydraulic steering. You might be confused with variable steering ratio that is offered as an option.
