Excerpt taken from Skierman64's thread regarding the BMW CCA meeting we attended with M Brand Manager Larry Koch speaking:

22. Why wasn't front PDC offered in the US.
He doesn't know for sure, however when you develop a new front fascia to fit the front PDC sensors, the car must be crash tested with the new sensors in the fascia. The crash test rules aren't the same in the EU and don't require another crash test.
