I don't agree. I understand why you would want this standard because it's a helpful aid that would actually be used with daily driving but personally, being aware of your surroundings and checking all mirrors is what you should be doing anyway. I'm not saying I'm a perfect driver but I don't need an aid for something I should be checking anyway. Now if adding something like this drastically lowers insurance rates, hey I'm all for it but if it's a minor adjustment, I rather have less technology and be responsible as a driver which you should be anyway. It should be standard as you work your way up to a 5-Series and higher because you're buying the car for the bells and whistles but in something like a 4-Series or lower, keep it as an option.
