Safety systems

Is anyone having issues with their safety systems? Sometimes my right side BSI lights up when I pass a car or truck and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes the front parking sensors give an audible beep and sometimes they don't warn at all. The mitigated braking system is intermittent. Sometimes the red car flashes on the dash and the brakes start to apply and sometimes the car acts like it just wants to run into the car in front with no intervention!! Also the pedestrian avoidance system doesn't appear to work at all. I had my wife walk toward the front of the car as I was approaching and the car did nothing!! All safety system are turned on. The safety light is green.
My I-drive version is 9/2019.53 Other than these items I love the car....

My 2018 Honda Odyssey has similar safety systems and they perform flawlessly all the time. It is disgraceful that my $90,000 plus BMW doesn't.

I haven't experienced these issues. The blind spot detection is not going to light up if you pass a car at a higher rate of speed. The intention is to warm you about a car you wouldn't otherwise know is hanging in the blind spot. If you just passed somebody, and they are in the danger zone for a split second, the light isnt going to illuminate.

As far as other issues. I have had the cross traffic warning go off when somebody approaches an intersection quickly and braking hard. The car feared they would proceed into the path of travel.

I have also had the car intervene in a side impact situation when a truck veered into my lane. So far all my systems work great.
