Ok, I think we then have 2 possibilities

1) The sensors hare covered and cannot see the car ( was so on some North American E90 )
2) The sensors have not been coded on

We need to look at the front interior light cluster on the roof. Where the Sunroof/SOS button is.
There should be 3 grills facing towards the back of the car.
This is where the sensors look out

Do you have the grills ?
Can you take a picture ?

If the sensors are there and the grills open, then they just have not been coded on.
The dealer can code them on
BMW if you are reading, I need a job, Please.
