You can't get a 28i in a manual in Europe, and SC can barely pump out enough F25's as it is. They pumped a ton of cash into Leipzig (X1, 1er and i) and have capacity for the volume there. The X1 is a low priority for the US (look at how it got pushed so long because of demand elsewhere) and short of them producing in SA or Brazil, its going to stay in Leipzig.
