Questions reg. cameras & lane assist
 
My 2010 550i GT has the camera package but it seems like only got the rear view camera & the side view camera.
I thought that the "top view camera" came along with this package?

My car also got the lane departure warning and the active blind spot detection that gives you a vibration in the steering wheel if you are about to do something dangerous.
My only concern is that I think the vibration is too weak. Any of you guys who have any any experience with this?

Thanks

My vibrations seemed stronger at first but seem weaker now. But maybe I am more use to it but it still gets my attention. Don't know if this can be stronger or not but when I get my next service in August I'll ask.

On my 2012 GT the vibration seems to intensify based on whether I am drifting toward the lane markings with my blinker on, are on them or have crossed them. I tested during lunch.

Lane departure and blind spot vibration in my 2012 535 GT feels a little less intense than the ripple strips that mark some breakdown lanes. I don't use these features that often, if at all.

The way I see it, if you are religious about using your directionals, you may never experience the warning! Now, living near Boston, I'd like to see it mandatory and not be able to be turned off! Then, maybe, at least some people would actually signal as is the law of the land.

And keep right except to pass!

I'll second that, too!
