I read a few different things and I can't really tell, but my gut tells me no. It seems like the brakes only apply if you have ACC. This is the description of the system

Quote:
Lane Departure Warning incl. camera-based Approach Warning. (Optional) Lane Departure Warning with approach warning registers lane markings at distances of up to 50 meters and at speeds above about 70 km/h. If the vehicle is likely to move out of lane, the system warns the driver with a slight vibration of the steering wheel. If the driver has activated the indicator meaning that the lane change is intentional no warning is given. The camera-based Approach Warning detects vehicles ahead and provides a warning when the BMW is getting too close or faces imminent risk of collision.
Below is a good article explaining how it works with ACC
