Interesting, I am wondering if all F22 2 series (old 1 series) will have that option. I was under the impression that VO would be unique to the 1M until I heard otherwise at Bimmerfest. Since then, I had seen the posts about how they are rolling this out for the F20s - http://f20.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=540605
. Not sure the correlation exists as there are a few hatch options and the 1M available in the UK.
