What wheels and tyres have you got on it?.

If you have low profile tyres on it(55's or 50's),then you will get a harsher ride than your old 306 as the tyre doesn't absorb small bumps in the road as it's sidewall is far stiffer than a higher profile one.The trade off is sharper handling,but if you find it unbearable to live with,go for some smaller wheels and higher profile tyres.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
