My 28i Xdrive came with the AS/S off from the factory. I believe that is the standard across the board now. I could be wrong, but it can definitely be programmed off if it is on from the factory.

Thank you. Just to clarify, the auto start/stop which shuts down the motor at traffic lights can be permanently shut down once and for all -leaving the motor running without interruption every time you get in the car? That would be great. I drove a 328i with the start/stop feature and did not like it as there was no default "off" setting.

We just picked up a loaded 2014 X1 sDrive28i yesterday (loving it!) and I can confirm that if you disable the AS/S feature using the button on the dash...the car remembers that setting with your driver profile. So it will be off each time you start the car (thank goodness!).

Pushing the Eco Pro button WILL turn the AS/S back on though.

I'll be posting photos and impressions of our car soon.

I'll just add, I ordered my sDrive28i sport line last week and servotronic was the only option for steering. Seems like BMW phased out the last of the hydraulic units, making servotronic as standard equipment.

I just picked up my 35 M Sport on Thursday and found that the 6 speed is a smoother transmission then the Zap 8 speed in my 2011 X3 that I traded in.
At first I was disappointed that I was getting a 6 speed but now that I have driven it I am very happy.

Hmmm.....I think I'm going to sort of disagree with you there.... lol
Went from a 335xi coupe with 6AT/paddles to X3 28, and now drove both the X1 35 w/6MT and the x28 - have to say the 8sp is much quicker shifting and waaaay smoother than the 6sp on the X1 35. But hey - as long as YOU are happy....

8 speed smoother, even with the quicker crisp shifts the newer tranny just shines!
