No, I believe the X1 LCI occurred in 2012 so the US has only had the LCI. I don't think the 35i is getting the 8AT. Most 35i owners are satisfied with the 6AT. I moved from an E90 N54 to the x28i and I find the 8AT far superior but others do not share my opinion.
Apparently, the 2015 X1 will be a quite different design based on the Mini Countryman.
