Power steering assist adjustable without sport package?

Does anybody know if the steering boost is adjustable on a 2012 535xi without the sport package, thanks.

There is an implication that it can be adjusted with the sport package. I have a new 550 M-Sport (not AWD) and I see no reference to being able to adjust the steering. Am I missing something?

I just test drove the 535xi with the sport package and the steering boost and suspension can be adjusted thru the I-drive. I was wondering if the non-sport can do that as well with the exception of the suspension of course.

Is the steering weight adjustable on any of the xDrive cars?

With regard to the non-sport package question, yes, it should be possible since all the cars now have the driving dynamics switch.
