Yes, all of them, though EPS could be had on 2013 MY 125i(s).

According to RealOEM.com some 2013, 125i's had EPS.

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/part...BMW-125i&mg=32

For most 128i's and 135i's there were only two steering systems/options. Hydraulic steering and Active(AFS) steering. Active steering varies the steering ratio depending on vehicle speed. You don't have to move(rotate) the steering wheel as much at slower speeds, but the wheels move at a greater angle - than when the car is up to speed.

I think also the ActivE(all electric 1er coupe) also had EPS as standard.

MY 2013 128i's did not have the option for active steering. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B9...m5HLTEzWnFIRnM Page 4, Option 217

I originally found out that 125i's could be had with EPS when I noticed the absence of a power steering fluid reservoir in some engine bay pictures and later confirmed it through RealOEM.

I'm glad to hear these responses. I absolutely hated the first 3 series cars that came out with EPS (electric power steering).

All EU-spec 1 Series Coupes and Cabrios, except 135i, had EPS w/o Servotronic - that thing was optional. Only vehicles equipped with AFS had a hydraulic steering rack. AFS was an option for 125i and 135i; the latter had Servotronic as standard.

OP is asking about a 128i, though. And all 128i's in the US had HPS.
