    Features installed but not turned on?

    I have a 2014 328i GT and have noticed that I do have the camera that is mounted behind the rear view mirror. The owners manual states the camera is for reading road signs.
    I do not have the lane departure collision avoidance buttons so I dont have those features.
    I am wondering if it is possible to have the car re coded to utilize this additional feature and any others I may be missing that have the equipment already installed for?

    Are you sure you have the camera installed and it's not the auto wiper system?
    They wouldn't install a KAFAS camera without the rest of the options...
    Post a pic, and the last 7 of your vin.

    You would need S5ADA, S5ASA, or S8THA for the camera to be installed from factory.

    This pdf is your specific vehicle data/options:

    This is what the KAFAS camera looks like, above the ConnectedDrive label:

    You took a picture of the rain/light sensor. It's not a camera
