I'm confused on why certain markets receive the electronic gear shifter, with the US receiving the mechanical one? Does anyone know why?

I thought the new X2 (like the current X1) shared the underpinnings of the MINI Countryman platform...so, shouldn't ALL the X2s have mechanical transmission levers?
Mr. Wood's example has the BMW Electronic Shifter. What gives?

My Reading:
-obviously sport auto - with buttons - like on pic - must have electronic gearshift
-7-speed with Double Clutch - El Cheapo -has mechanical.

Note: traditionally DC is a high tech gearbox, but lately also in low cost versions - from China?

25d will have the ugly lever, from my info.
This one is 20d. Also lower than 20 will have the nicer lever.
Could OP give us a photo with the VIN so we could check if it can be retrofitable?

Saw one yesterday. The exterior is much nicer than the pictures lead on. The interior is cheap and feels like an x1

The lip stick front end has to be the worse thing ever on a BMW. It never gets better seeing it again and again. WTF were they thinking.

Personally.. when I walk into dealers in DFW.. it seems EVERY car is priced at 50-57K whether it's a 2 series or X1 or X2 that is loaded, or it is an base model of some other vehicles like a 3 or 4 series or X3/X4 with an M sport package, tech package etc...

As far as the X2 pictured.. it will look tons better in 2 years when they make all of them body colored rather than the cheap gray plastic on the rockers and front and rear valances..

Car actually looks way better in these pics and much more like the concept... HOWEVER, the interior looks naff... and that’s what the driver will be looking at 99% of the time... so it’s a no thank you from me!

And with the dogs dinner that is the X4 (but it may look better in the metal) not to mention the inflated price, I’ll await the G20 I think ��

ya a friend that works there said they fucked up the price. really they missed 7k of options. and its a 28i...(btw 50k cad not usd). anyways the ca rdef looks alottt better in person but is still an absolute waste of money. if only we could educate this poor fools that fall for this shit cars. :^/ so much money thrown away.

I can bet BMW A-Team design department is focused on the 3/4 series and X5/X6 only. Everything else is either weird or so so.
