Anything is possible for the right amount but might not be worth it. From what I can tell you're going to require the radar upfront and cameras by the rearview mirror along with steering wheel buttons for each of the settings and idrive update. Going to be very costly.

Honestly you're not missing much. I find that the system is more intrusive than helpful but I've not had a moment yet where it has saved my a$$ so Maybe my opinion will change at that point.

Radar Cruise control is EXCELLENT. LOVE IT.

I first sampled it when driving my dad's 2012 A8L, it's very handy.

My wife's Sienna has it and it works great in that also.

One caveat. The Sienna will trail closer to the car in front than the M5 does. I find the distance to far on the M5, as people cut you off too often. With the Sienna this does not happen. I guess Toyota trusts their auto breaking more than BMW does?

Land departure warning is very useful and the Lane auto hold is pretty good, but not perfect, it looses sight of the lines too often despite the fact that I can see them fine. It will follow the wrong line now and then, and try to take an off ramp.

The lane warning in the BMW is a vibration in the steering wheel , so it does not bother my passengers.

In the Sienna is a BEEP BEEP coming from the speaker on the side you are getting too close too. Same with blinds spot warning, that makes sense to be a beep beep, but not for the lane thing.

Blind Spot warning is very good.

The Radar Cruise works differently below 35 mph, it actually follows the car in front of you, and that works amazingly well. Car can come to complete stop and start up again.

Auto stop on backing up is Meh, if it thinks something is there, it hits the brakes and it will shock you! I was backing into a parking spot at night and the thing stopped short on me, I was 6 feet from the curb and nothing was there, I turned that feature OFF.

Auto park, never tried it.....some have with mixed results. I know how to park thank you very much.

If you car does not have it, it would not be worth the price of adding it aftermarket.

Mike

It would probably be easier and more economical to turn in the car and get a new one with the assist pkg. adding the feature aftermarket will be highly difficult and impractical.

I was confused about this stuff when I bought my 2020 maybe because I’m dense. Anyway in case it helps anyone else to clarify what’s standard and what’s in this option I copied below. Off topic I know but related.

Standard Equipment is Active Driving Assistant which includes Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Frontal Collision Warning, Pedestrian Warning with Braking, City Collision Mitigation with braking and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

The $1700 Driving Assistance Plus option (aka Active Driving Assistant Plus) includes Active Cruise Control w/Stop & Go, Active Lane Keeping Assistant w/side collision avoidance, Traffic Jam Assistant, Evasion Aid, & Cross-traffic alert front, in addition to the contents of Active Driving Assistant.

It would probably cost several multiples more than $1700 to add the assist pkg to a car aftermarket.

Just get a new car. Seriously. 😉

Would not call it excellent for me. Following distance is set way too far on the M5. Even at closest setting, cars cut in front of you, then M5 brakes hard to reset distance so even more can cut in front of you. Just plain frickin dumb. Don't recommend this option and only use on empty highways. Regular cruise control would be better imo but there's no way to disable it.
