I don't have the traffic sensors (although have allround parking sensors), so does anyone know if this is standard? It seems it warns you for impact... and the way the guy backed off I wonder if my brake lights were flashing at him (I was NOT braking at the time).

Would be great to know if this was an intended safety feature, if so, it worked !
Not sure but I wish that worked for us and our 535i...a drunken geriatric accelerated into our rear bumper with a POS Honda Pilot in gridlocked freeway traffic. No fun.
