550i or 550xi ??

I have ordered a 550 GT. Just looked at the lease rates again, noticed the residual for the Xi model is 2% higher which more than pays for the extra cost. They lease payment actually goes down.

Are there other benefits than additional traction on slippery roads?

Is it true that the Xi models have hydraulic steering. not electric?

Non staggered all-season tires.

Any change in MPG?

X-MPG will be down slightly. Acceleration from a stop will be better. Significantly better in the rain/snow.
