I have both, always use blind spot, never use LDW.
My 535d is ordered with both LCW & LDW. Australia is a big country & we have some really long roads so its easy to get tired driving & start to wander off your lane (done it myself a few times & have taken the warning to take a break from driving) so LDW wil be a useful warning tool to have. LCW should be mandatory here with the number of idiots who sit in your blind spot
I wish we could get the 550d here in OZ. It's figures look awesome,
