F01 - side view cameras, chrome accents, speed limit sign recognition

I'm not saying that the F01 is a bad car - just that I wished it offered something significantly truly new and innovative, like its forbears.
1) If ABS means anti-lock braking, the S Class introduced that first to the car world, not the 7...
2) M contour seats? I wouldn't really say newly shaped seats are a first...
3) ARS also wasn't a first, the S Class already had an advanced air suspension with its ABC Active Body Control system.
