Ok so yes, I agree with you totally, I have the heated steering and love it. Funny, something as simple as that, I'm really appreciating. I live in Idaho------burrrrrrrr it's cold. I use to live in NJ, and I still would've wanted it.
Have fun with your new X1, I'm really enjoying mine!!! I have the mineral white, it's more forgiving in my environment, but the black is gorgeous. ENJOY
