FCW VO Code

Does anyone know if the is a VO option that can be added & coded for Forward Collision Warning if you have KAFAS but no Active Cruise a control?

I was just reading the US owners manual & it does say FCW is available even without ACC & wondered if I could code it on a uk car?

Would I need a BE FSC for a 09-2011 F10 M5 with old firmwares?
Today I got the switch to enable LDW and I got buttons to spare now for FCW as well

My guess is FCW will not work without KAFAS2 and a BE FSC Code.

So how do those codes also show up in KAFAS?
Were those FSC's (FreiSchalt Code??) also applicable for older software versions or are they introduced after NBT or simply newer firmwares?

How is an FSC applied once you would be able to retreive in the first place?

FCW prior to KAFAS2 was based on ACC, which didn't need FSC, KAFAS1 did SLI (without FSC), LDW and HBA.

OK so FSC was part of ACC which isn't an option for the M5. I don't have KAFAS2 so that concludes the quest for FCW on an M5 with KAFAS1. Thanks for the info

AFAIK you can have two types of FCW, FCW with KAFAS2 only (no braking, just audio visual warning) and FCW with ACC will also give you braking in addition. So you can have FCW with or without ACC, it just changes the behaviour of FCW.

Since I have a 'spare' button now as well, how can FCW be activated in ESET on a 2012 make? (with KAFAS and SLI, no ACC)

It's not available on KAFAS1 unless you have ACC also, I'm looking to retrofit ACC but can find aN ACC DSC or ICM HIGH to complete it, I have the radar & buttons
