I think you need to decide it for yourself with test drive. However it is almost impossible to find a car with servotronic at the dealer. All servotronic does - it reduces assistance at higher vehicle speed.
To me what's more important - hydraulic or electric. I tried both. And I really did not like hydraulic. Much harder than any of cars I owned before. Even electric is fairly hard to my taste. However I never had BMW before.
Most people here who like hydraulic steering had BMW before and looking for that particular feel/experience. So it all comes down to personal preferences.
Servotronic will just make the steering feel at high speed similar to slow.
