My theory is that BMW is marketing the X1 heavily towards women, who will all be choosing Servotronic as an option over the non-Servo hydraulic steering. After looking at all the youtube videos posted by various magazine editors during their test drive of the X1 up to and around the New York Auto Show in April, I noticed that BMW did not bring over a Servotronic X1 N20 engine for them to test out. All of them then had similar complaints that the steering is too heavy. Good or bad marketing ploy by BMW I'll let you be the judge of that. As for my part, I added Servotronic (a $250 option) to my order.
