Shake,

Agree. Weight has to come down. They don't really have a choice with tightening mileage/emission rules. A little smaller would be ok, but not much - the size is one thing that make the 6er...

Side by side really shows how much smaller cars were in the 90's. And notice the larger panel gaps.

Ok, that's 2 cars out of a hundred + models. Still say it could be a fixed cam if BMW wanted to do it. I believe they decided on the motorized cam for the James Bond effect.

My point is ALL other automakers make their rearview cameras work without resorting to a complex motorized system. Design in how the camera is angled & field of view do the job.

Well, no other BMW model has the motorized camera, and they look fine, as do Benz, Porsche, Jag ( and everyone else) Current rear cams are so small they are easy to hide.

As cool at the motorized camera is, I think it's a unnecessary feature that is something that can go wrong. Every other car made gets by with a fixed rearview cam. And it cost us a power trunk !!

That would work, but have to imagine a second visor set would not be cheap. And there is wiring for the vanity lights. so no idea how easy the swap would be. The stickers really are a great solution.

He is correct. In most liberal NE states, self defense laws are very weak. The politicians are more concerned with coddling criminals than allowing the law abiding protect themselves.
