Park Distance Control

Does anyone have any information on FRONT FACING Park Distance Control (PDC) ? I have an M3 with PDC facing REAR only, but am wondering whether i can get the front PDC installed? I searched the forum and don't see anything about this and BMW's site suggests only the rear facing is available as an option to order on the M3. Is the front bumper different than the 3 Series such that the front PDC will work on the M3? Thank you,

Gotcha. I have to use a shoe horn to get my car in its spot, unfortunately. It's a nice feature for that purpose, but really not that accurate or helpful without a camera.

AES SELLS FRONT-FACING PDC for M3

http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...9x-3-seires-m3

Has anyone tried to install the AES unit? Looks like they take the OEM parts and provide for it on the US-bound M3's that dont have the option for the front facing video

Why doesn't the M3 have the option of front PDC?
