I have posted in the past with some detail about the contrast between my X1 28i and X3 35i.

1. All 35i's have Servotronic; it was optional on 28i's until recently, so earlier ones might or might not have it.
2. I don't think any X1's have this.
3. My 2014 was built in April and has...

All X1 xDrive 35i's in USA have had HPS with Servotronic all along. The only change is that xDrive 28i's will now have Servotronic standard instead of as an option, just like xDrive 35i's. No EPS...

Multiple Security Deposits. Where allowed (not in NY State, e.g.), each security deposit (up to 7?) reduces the lease money factor, I think, by .00007. The amount of the security deposit is related...

You may be confused...xDrives will still have hydraulic power steering. Servotronic is a feature available with both HPS and EPS.

My thought is the pre-inspection protects you from any surprises. When I scheduled mine they did it right in my office parking lot. Easy as pie.

Just curious...why would you need to clear a button? What's the harm in not clearing it? You can set it to something new anytime you want.

I know my 2012 X3 has that, while the 2014 X1 does not. I assume it's an F-series vs E-Series thing?

I'm pretty sure you can assign one of the buttons to toggle that if you want. Try going in,...
