Drive by Wire?

Does the F25 have drive by wire for steering and gas pedal or is it a mechanical link?

Steering is drive by wire. I expect that the gas pedal is too.

The steering is most certainly NOT drive by wire, it is only on electronic assist. Your gas pedal IS drive by wire, as it has been, with BMWs for over a decade (depending on the model).
