Mein Auto: 2014 X5 Xdrive35i M Trim
Can't find Torque Distribution Display in xDrive Status

Ok so here is the deal. I looked in the Manual (p. 133 US ver.) and it says that under Vehicle info, xDrive Status there is a "Torque Distribution" Option and a symbol. I assume this is to display the vehicle's torque distribution on the wheels. Guess what? I don't have that option...what gives?

Is this something to do with my F15 being M Sport?

Torque Vectoring? I was told that this feature is only included with DHP.

I keep finding the DHP responsible for all my problems!

LOL!

It doesn't say anything to that regards in the manual though.

When you display the xDrive screen, are there two options to scroll between (little icons on the upper left of the display)? That's how I get the torque vectoring to show on mine, but I also have DHP.

No two options to choose. Just plain ol' xDrive Status.

Word to the wise:

When buying your F15 make sure you buy the DHP and it will have every option available!
