Any software update for steering available?

Hi,

I remember reading a while back that there's been some software updates from MY12 to 13 and from 13 to 14 that improved steering feel?

My car is at the dealership now and I'm driving a MY14 X1 as a loaner and the steering feels better than my car. Maybe I'm imagining things just because it's a MY14, I don't know. I looked up the VIN on the loaner and it has EPS not hydraulic.

Is there any software updates available for my car? Mine is a January 2013 build.

Thanks.

I believe the X1 still has the hydraulic power steering which might explain why it feels more connected.

RWD versions have EPS, AWD versions, HPS.

I think the newest software does improve it some. But you need a reason to get the car re-coded. I asked for the automatic start stop feature to remember the last setting. That required an update and when I got the car back, steering felt a little better too.
