I highly recommend the Blackvue DR650GW 2-channel dash cam, been using two of them in two BMWs for the past 4 years without a hitch. Be vary of where you get it from though, it has to be directly from the manufacturer, otherwise they won't honor the warranty.

Apeman has been providing great dash cams for years. I have used one for months. Great picture, functionality, and a 32gb memory stick lasts for weeks. Best of all, they are cheap. I paid $35.

I have a Blackvue DR590W-2CH (coincidentally, also on my 2017 330i Gran Turismo). It works well enough, but having the wire to the rear camera routed along the headliner kills my FM radio reception. Also, I got the OBD2 adapter to power it and enable parking mode, and it lasts for less than a day before the car shuts off the electrical system to prevent battery drain. Fine for parking at the office or at the grocery store, but not useful if you leave the car somewhere for an extended period of time.
