BMW 5 Series: Parking Maneuvering Assistant

The Parking Maneuvering Assistant (PMA) supports the driver in many ways. The assistant measures the size of a gap between cars and decides, based on the result, whether the gap is large enough to accommodate the vehicle. It also relieves the driver of the task of maneuvering into the space.

The Parking Maneuvering Assistant (OE 5DP) is no longer available as an individual item of optional equipment.

The Parking Maneuvering Assistant is included in the Parking Assistant, optional equipment (OE 5DM), in the G30.

Parking Assistant (OE 5DM) is available only in conjunction with the automatically dipping exterior mirror, optional equipment (OE 4T8).
