For MY14 Blind Spot monitoring is only available as part of the Driver Assistance Plus pkg. So, if you want it, you'll have to pony up $1900 for that and the other stuff included.

Top and Side view cams can be ordered as a stand alone option but you must order Navigation or Technology Pkg and the Driver Assistance Pkg which includes PDC and rear cam.

Gotcha. Blind Spot is absolutely out of the question then. Top and Side view cameras don't really seem necessary to me since I have the Rear view camera (I got all options except Driver Assistance Plus)

What do you guys think of the value of the MSport Brakes at $650? Admittedly it would be for cosmetic purposes only as I dont plan to track the 335i Msport i am going to order.

Are these the same brakes as the M-Performance you can order as a standalone option for $XXXX? Or is this what used to be standard on M-Sport and is now a option? You know the dusty European brakes pads.

That would suck if what used to be standard became an option.

I've driven a car with top and side cams. It really depends on your environment. If you are in a very urban area and run into near blind intersections, the side view can help make sure you don't poke out too far to try to see cross traffic. For most suburban drivers side view has less value. The only time I wished I had it was when I was backed into a parking spot and an SUV was parked next to me. Pulling out required me to be more careful as I couldn't see.

Top view would be much more valuable IMO if it could show the front end of the car clearly (not distorted). This way I could see curbs when pulling front first into a corner parking spot. Unfortunately, this kinda 1st gen approach to top view by BMW is more focused toward the rear of the car. And, if you have the rear cam, the rear turning lines are typically all you need to guide you into a spot or turn while backing up. Yes, there could be an occasion where top view could be helpful in tight spots or for parallel parking when driver isn't really good at it.

What most people don't like about top view is the rear cam distance becomes VERY short. Most top view camera users find themselves either using rear cam most or they toggle back and forth between top view and rear view while backing up. Somewhat annoying. Maybe next gen will improve this...

In very low light conditions, top view doesn't work well since side of car is not illuminated. Rear view gets illumination from backup lamps and side view would see headlights of oncoming car, its really top view that suffers most in low light. Again, maybe next gen will address with better cameras or IR cameras.

Finally, rain water can be a problem with all the cameras. Water droplets sit on the camera lens and can sometimes make them almost useless. This can impact all the cameras and in some situations could render them almost useless until you wipe off the water or it dries.

All in all, rear cam - YES if your budget allows Top and side view is debatable unless you are a repeat offender of curbing your car or you drive in uber urban environments.

Hope that helps.

2NH brakes haven't been available in the U.S. until now. Search the posts for the mentions of this option code to see the history and details on what this option actually is.

This might help.

http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=689045

In summary, MSport brakes and MPerformance brakes are identical, apart from two differences. MSport calipers are Blue only and rotors are smooth. MPerformance calipers come in 3 colors (but not blue) and the rotors are drilled slotted.

MPerformance looks nicer with the cut rotors, for sure. The question is do you "need" either. Looks, yes. If you track your car, then Yes. Otherwise, not really.

My one question is if the MSport/MPerformance brake pads dust any less than the US std MSport brake pads? Man, these std MSport brakes are dusty! Like my E36 M3.

Thank you very much for the detailed write up. Looks like I will skip the top view cameras, as I'm not prone to any sort of curbing and I've never even had a backup camera; just sensors in my brothers M3.

I opted for every package except the Driver Assistance Plus, so I've got the works

Interesting that there is no LED lighting package available for MY14. Reserving that option for F32?
