this feature probably can't be added into the current platform. the X3 is based on the E46 3-series, so it's really out of date (figure, the next X3 will be based on the E-90 3 series, debuting in 2010 , with the next 3-series, F-30 debuting in 2011, according to BMW). BMW had the opportunity to add this functionality in 2007, with the refresh of the vehicle, where they added the N52 engine, along with revised interiors and exterior, and didn't. they probably can't add it, or if they could, it wouldn't attract enough new buyers to justify the cost.
