Let us know how well the Lane Departure Warning works.
Lane departure worked perfectly. I had a very long drive home from the dealer. My cousin was with me but he couldn't stay up so I ended up driving quite late. I turned it on and noticed the wheel did vibrate several times which was a big warning for me. Next exit was a motel and that's where I headed.

Over the summer my wife and I took the kids on a little trip in our VW Jetta TDI. We decided to leave at night to beat the traffic home. For some reason I was really tired that night and noticed that I was not staying in my lane. My wife drove the rest of the way but I could tell she was tired too though she was fine to drive. I knew our next vehicle would very likely be the X5 and I swore that this would be high on my list. With a 3 year old and a 6 month old, it was a no brainer.

Actually I had also asked for the climate comfort windscreen and after BMW AG approved it I was told I had to make a choice between that and lane departure. My choice was obvious.
