You can install an android head unit, it has 2 video inputs, one for reverse camera ( auto activates when you put the car in reverse ) and one for a second camera that you activate yourself by opening an app. It's not perfect, but it works.

It is overall cheaper than retrofitting a BMW OEM reverse camera and you get a 8" or 10" screen upgrade and google maps / waze, whatever you like for navigation. This is what I currently have on my car.

Another option is to retrofit the 360 bird eye camera system from the 3 series, like shown here:
Quaife LSD | BC Racing Coilovers | H&R ARB | Wiechers Strutbar | Mishimoto CAI | Mishimoto Oil Cooler | Mishimoto Oil Catch Can | Mishimoto FMIC | VRSF DP | Masata TIC | Masata CP | DV+ | Custom Stainless Exhaust | GTS Style Roll Cage | Sparco Evo QRT | Brey-Krause seat mounts | Schroth Profi 2 ASM 6p | 10" Android HU| xHP Stage3 | BM3 Stock tune with Cat off
