All BMW 1 Series models can be specified with Park Distance Control to ensure ease of parking and manoeuvrability. For added peace of mind, owners can now opt for a rear view camera for true 360-degree visibility.

Activated when reverse gear is selected, the wide-angle lens camera is mounted in the rear bumper giving a clear view of the area behind the car. For cars specified with iDrive, images are displayed in the on-board monitor and those without iDrive use an additional monitor in place of a central air vent. Pricing for a car with iDrive is £339 (excluding fitment) and for those without, the price is £638.
