It does when you are in reverse, but you have to push a button when you are pulling into the parking space. It's on the row of buttons down low, along with DSC, rear hatch, etc. Not impossible to find, but I usually have to glance at it to ensure my finger hits the right one.

My wife's Lexus has a switch to leave the parking sensors on all the time, but it is only the beeping with no display. It would be cool if BMW could provide an automatic option, where the display came on when the sensors detected something.

maybe it's a large drink holder. Up in the forward portion there I put nothing but garbage though so I'd rather have what was in the E70.

As for PDC I only use it when inching for parallel parking and it's not very often at all that I have to actually touch the button. I probably hit it to turn it off more often than on since it stays on.

That's what I think it is but again, what a waste of all that space if that's the case. Hope it can be removed...

yes, those are cup holders (like in new 3 series I recently loaned).

I'll hold off my final judgement till I see M-version.
So far I have a feeling my initial impression won't change once I see it. With that said, looks like E53 4.8is is still #1 in my book.

I'm very happy that I bought a '12 X5 35d.
