I went for a test drive today and found one X1 had these plastic grips in the cavities, and one X1 did not. The X1 without the grips was an older one that the dealer had for a while. BMW must have noticed the awkwardness and added this part; it looks like an afterthought, not integrated into the cavity.

The grips do make closing the lift gate much easier, and possible with one motion.
You are thanking the wrong person for the tailgate pics as they were taken/posted by Bill B.
Glad you were able to experience the difference between the old and new "modified" design.
