Overly sensitive Park Distance Control emergency braking

Does anyone else have issues with the emergency braking being overly sensitive? On my 3 series, it only really activates when there is a real risk of collision, but on my wifes 1 series, it seems to activate when you're more than 2 foot away from something.

When we reverse onto the drive, there is a hedge that is a good couple of feet from the rear / side of the car as you reverse past it but half the time it still jams on the brakes! It's a shame you can't dial down the sensitivity, it just seems its either on or off.

Have not experienced this myself, and I reverse into a driveway with a wall on one side with a fence to the rear and to the right. Have you checked the settings?

I had a look, but it seems the choice is only on or off. Shame it doesnít have different sensitivities like some of the other options.

I liked the idea of it but also find it too sensitive. Reversing out of the garage was a non starter with it switched on as it continuously stopped the car.

I now have it on number 8 of the quick buttons to turn on and off as I want. I just know that the time I forget to activate it will be the time I reverse into something though!

I agree guys it's way too sensitive! I thought I had hit something the first time it happened! Good idea to add it to the short cut keys

Apologies, just realised I'd turned mine off as Audi's system had similar issues...

I tried the shortcut keys but it would only allow me to choose the high-level menu not actually uncheck the option itself which was annoying.

I also tried disabling the side warnings but that didnít help either!

Yes, itís the menu before if I remember correctly but it gets you there far quicker than remembering where it is in iDrive

Yes, I had the same issue with my F48. Had to take it to the BMW garage for fixing (no charges). Works fine now.
