Damn! Autonomous Emergency Braking!

Even a Kia has this technology,...and my 6-figure M5 doesn't! It would be nice if this could be retro-fitted via software update and a few pieces of hardware!

Edit: Not that I'm not paying attention,...but for those times when I'm not paying attention the 1% of the time all the time!,...every time!,...everyday!

I get what you are saying. It should standard and not in a package.

I hope the next M5 has it standard.

I'd be seriously disappointed if it wasn't offered for the next generation. I can't see them retrofitting it for the F10 M5.

My guess is lane departure assist, blind spot detection will be standard. And autonomous braking will be optional. Probably part of the executive package.

Not that I agree with it, I think all safety features should be standard.

Though I'd like to have "autonomous braking" on a vehicle, I'd also like to have the ability to turn it off! I wouldn't want a car doing everything for me,...all the time!
