thanks for the confirmation Tim. I guess the BMW USA website is incorrect in stating that the 35i comes with EPS.
Since Servotronic is a cost option for the Sdrive, I wonder what the steering feels like without Servotronic. EPS without Servo is unheard of. IMO, that make the Servotronic option for the Sdrive a rip off since, if there is a difference it's only a change in software.
