If you are looking for increased steering feedback, try stickier/wider front tires and/or changing out the EPS ECU to one from a newer F-Sport or IS F model.
Agree and that's what I meant, the physical sloppiness of the steering wheel but maybe I didn't explain me thoughts well enough.
When the steering wheel is slippery then one has to hold it firmer to cause enough friction between one's hands and the wheel to make sure the car stays on track when zipping through traffic or on parking lots.
With vehicles that have variable steering this is less of an issue because the ratio changes and steering wheel is easy to turn (less resistance) so less friction required thus not required to hold tight the wheel at all times.
As far as I understand the different ECU won't change that since there is no variable steering column in the current IS. The 2014 has it
