Thanks Jay!

So there appears to be a single front nested camera inbetween the grill.

The 3D view appears to be stitching together the front bumper camera and the side mirror cameras into one image.

I guess whether or not it can truly see the sides depends on how wide angle the lens is. The pure "front" image didn't look to be wide angle.

1 year sirius was in a package on the F30 at launch too...

I remember having to pay bimmertech to activated mine remotely via the internet since mine didn't have it turned on.

I have this on my X3 M40i and I can tell you that it does a much better job than my 440i did.

I'm wondering if it's just a G20 configurator error. From the other posts it sounds like there are other bugs in it.

On the X3 M40i the configurator does load up the front side bumper camera when you select the appropriate package. On the G20 is just stays blank.

So disappointing.

The color options on the 330i msport are horrendous.

I've decided to buy out my lease on my 2016 328i. I love the car i have now. The F30 was very capable when optioned right (RWD, Msport, M-transmission, non-RFT, track package).

Perhaps BMW will get me on the LCI. But for now. I just know i would be kicking myself if i get a car that i wind up not loving.

Instead i can get a chip tune and some other fun stuff added to give me a fun time for the next few years.

BMW really blew it with these colors.

So only thing I'm confused about is park distance control. M-Sport comes with it, does that include a rear view camera?

Rear view camera is a standard feature.
508 park distance control is just the traditional parking sensors and beeps I guess.

The configurator seems to have caused more confusion than clarity. Every year it seems BMW screws this up.

Seriously. It says the moonroof is part of ZPP when it's standard.

It's weird how an otherwise competent company can launch it without any kind of decent QA.

Also they need to hire some new web devs and make a modern 3D configurator like this:

Anyone noticed the discrepancy between the original press release and the configurator, in regards to the optional HK audio system. The press release said "16-speaker, 464w;" but the configurator lists "12-speaker, 360w." WTH?!

That is a parking sensor not a camera.

I wish the public had access to our VSR builder. It is 3d and you can rotate the car, look around the interior and even open the trunk.

I know right! BMW.de and many others have the 3d viewer, albeit not as slick as the Genesis. Why does BMW USA only have still images? It's frustrating to only see one interior image without a 360 view.

Yeah makes sense if it's a PDC sensor for self parking.

I was wondering if they had somehow tinted the camera lens to body panel, it looked a lot like the ultrasonic parking sensor but was in the position exactly where my current cameras are.

Guess I'll wait to play with it when the G20 hits the dealership.

I had an EB2 f30.... and after 4 years I was sick of the color too and this type of blue in general. It looks great for a moment then I get tired of it , but it defintely stands out. I'm not sure what to get this time around though, I love Alpine White and the contrast, but it seems so "just another white car on the road) but will probably go that route. Dravit gray needs to be a normal color selection
