There are 2 star-shape caps on the left hand side under the hood. One has CHF 11 written on the top of the cap, and the other has the words "Do not open when hot" and 140 written in the middle of the cap. I'm hoping that one of these is the reservoir for the hydraulic fluid pump.
I never had a 3 series. We sold our 2009 535i xDrive back to the dealership, and ordered the X1 for more ground clearance. My wife says her 535i xDrive's hydraulic steering was perfect, and that this X1 xDrive28i with Servotronic is just so much lighter than that. I've been driving our Porsche since May, so this Servotronic steering feels so light and Japanese like to me.
Here are a few pictures I took today of our new arrival in Mineral Grey. Cheers!
