Does that mean if you order the servotronic option you are going back to use power steering fluid?
No, this is my first BMW. It just seemed tight compared to my current car. You don't go back to hydraulic with Servotronic. my sDrive would have EPS w or w/o servotronic. You are right - varying assist electronically is exaclty what you get with EPS/Servotronic/. Without Servotronic, there is no varying of the steering force - it is the same at all speeds. I don't know how Servotronic does its work with Hydraulic systems.
