I have owned several cars over the years with reverse parking sensors and never had a problem with them, but on the X3 I find I have to reverse very slowly to allow the acoustic sensor to catch up. Otherwise it suddenly jumps from no beeps to a flat line, or very near, which is not particularly reassuring when you are reversing a 35k car.

I wonder whether it is a general problem with the system or a specific issue with my build (November 2012).
Lol. You can reduce the lag time by SLOWING down. No more Batman park jobs.
