Power Steering Column

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
My 22 X3MC entered production last week. BMWUSA.com lists a power telescoping steering column as standard equipment.

Can anyone who has received their 22 in the US confirm if this is true or an error?


As described on website: 3-spoke power telescopic, leather-wrapped, multi-function M sport steering wheel

So interesting it says that and odd that it calls it power telescopic but not power tilt and telescopic, doesn't make any sense they would add power to telescopic but not power tilt. I have a December build 22 and it is manual tilt and telescopic (which is disappointing in this car since everything else adjusts with memory settings except the steering wheel).

Yea a bit disappointing but think of it this way, one less module so one less thing to go wrong!

The only power on my '22 steering wheel is for the buttons lol

There is no power tilt/telescoping. That's reserved for the X5+

This has been listed on BMW website for a while now even though it's not an option on this platform. Kind of embarrassing.

That is funny and made me remember that one of my friends bought a Cayenne last year and due to the chip shortage it shipped without the module for the power steering column adjustment, they adjusted it for her at the dealer one time and then you could not move the column again until they got a module for the car which has not happened yet.
