Is the steering normally quite stiff in these? After driving other cars when I drive my fn2 it seems quite stiff compared to the others. Not uncomfortably stiff just slightly. I've never driven another fn2 so I don't know if it is normal or not.

Yes, I'd say it's fairly stiff/heavy. It's the first thing I notice after driving another car.

The smaller steering wheel makes it feel like that imo. I noticed it straight off the bat from my last car.

I went from a 1.4 2011 ivtec to fn2 from last month, the steering manoeuvrability is night n day.

I would say it is not stiff but weighted.
Have you checked your tyre pressures in case they are a bit low, that would cause a heavy feeling?
