The only thing I really wish my M5 had is a backup camera. Is anyone running one? If so what model?

Cheers
Mike
From what I've read usdm models already has a wiring harness to the rear license plate but you gonna need a module to make it work.

The cameras are cheap, but hard to integrate unless you go with a separate screen such as an android. I am working on adding it to my M5. At least with an android screen you can easily add Carplay in addition to a back up camera.

I currently use a wireless license plate frame backup camera that feeds to a screen stuck to my window. It works fine but blocks the license plate lighting. I've seen the "OEM" retrofits for our cars from Bimmertech, I may give that a try. Doesn't look too bad of an install besides pulling up the trim/dash and getting the wiring through.
