I found something interesting (to me anyway). This may be the norm, but I've never had a car with blind spot monitoring, so I found it interesting that it doesn't kick in until about 30 mph. Why??? I can think of lots of times that I've almost changed lanes onto someone at speeds lower than 30!

From the manual (page 101): Two radar sensors below the rear bumper monitor the area behind and next to the vehicle at speeds above approx. 30 mph/50 km/h.

Should be on the BMW site for South Africa. It is also in your iDrive.

It's an annoyance thing. Otherwise it'd buzz your steering wheel randomly as you signal for turns at a traffic light, etc, not to mention if you're going 0 and the guy next to you is going 30 or 45, he's going to come in and then go out of range of your sensors in a split second. The blind spot assist is not advanced enough to serve as a replacement for you looking in such environments. It was only meant for low risk lane changes on the highway.
