Can anyone confirm what the feature differences are between Driving Assitant Plus vs. Professional?
On the Bmw Germany site it has more extensive descriptions of the several assistant systems of the new i7. From my understanding the plus “only” goes up to 180kmh and the pro goes up to 210kmh (or 200khm for the iX). In addition the Pro has the assisted view in the dash / hud with the surrounding cars. In the i7 also displays real time front camera in center display. So the Plus should also have steering assist and up to 180kmh should work the same way as the Pro.

The Driving Assistant is your practical helper in dangerous driving situations and can actively intervene depending on the situation.
Inattentive for a moment? The lane departure warning warns you from about 70 km/h by steering wheel vibrations before you leave your lane unintentionally. If necessary, your BMW will guide you safely back on track with active steering intervention.
Bringing you back into your lane is also part of the lane change warning: it serves as an additional look over your shoulder and helps to prevent collisions when changing lanes. The system also warns when turning at speeds of up to approx. 20 km/h.
Help when reversing out of a parking space: the rear cross-traffic warning can detect passing vehicles at an early stage and brake automatically in an emergency.
While the front collision warning with braking intervention detects vehicles, the pedestrian warning reacts to pedestrians and cyclists. If a collision is imminent, emergency braking occurs automatically.
The rear collision warning, in turn, warns following vehicles in the event of danger. To do this, she activates the hazard warning lights at double speed. Advantage: a lower risk of rear-end collisions.
How fast can I currently drive? The Speed Limit Info with no-overtaking display and anticipation recognizes speed limits. Practical: You can use the Speed Limit Assist to adjust the maximum speed to the current speed limit.
When exiting, exit warning alerts you and the occupants to oncoming vehicles and cyclists.

The Driving Assistant Plus makes life easier, especially on longer journeys. Between 30 and 180 km/h, the distance control permanently maintains the desired speed and the distance to the vehicle in front. The system thus increases comfort and safety. In addition to vehicles ahead, the distance control also detects stationary vehicles. In an emergency, your BMW will brake to a standstill and drive off again on its own. The steering and lane guidance assistant keeps your BMW in the middle of the lane at speeds of up to 180 km/h through active steering intervention - this relieves you, especially on the motorway, whether in traffic jams or construction sites.
Another safety benefit when distance control is activated: Your BMW automatically reduces speed if, for example, you B. approaching a curve. To do this, it uses the map data from the navigation system and automatically accelerates again at the exit of the bend.
If you ever miss a sign, use the Speed Limit Info to keep an eye on current speed limits. Using the camera or navigation map, the system recognizes speed limits or no-overtaking zones and displays a message. If you exceed the permissible limit, an optional visual warning is given.
The automatic Speed Limit Assist goes one step further if you are currently using one of the following three functions: speed limiter, distance control or cruise control with braking function. The system detects speed limits and automatically adjusts the vehicle speed.

Whether there is an imminent frontal collision or cross traffic at the rear – your BMW will warn you and brake automatically if necessary. It helps prevent accidents when changing lanes and exiting. It also warns following traffic of an impending rear-end collision. These functions of the Driving Assistant are also included in the Driving Assistant Professional. Your benefit in total: a lower risk of accidents in dangerous situations.
The Driving Assistant Professional can do even more. It relieves you even more while driving. The system also warns you of crossing traffic at the front and actively supports you in avoiding vehicles or pedestrians in front of you. If there is a risk of a side collision while driving, your BMW intervenes independently with a steering intervention. Assisted View, on the other hand, displays real-time information about the vehicle’s surroundings in three dimensions in the instrument cluster.
How safety and comfort complement each other perfectly is shown e.g. E.g. on the motorway: Your BMW maintains the speed and the set distance to the vehicle in front up to a limit of 210 km/h. If a rear-end collision is imminent, the system brakes automatically.
The comfort highlight: Also up to 210 km/h, the Driving Assistant Professional keeps your BMW in the middle of the lane with active steering intervention - you don't have to steer as much. Your vehicle also recognizes speed limits and no-overtaking zones and automatically adjusts the speed. Requirement: Distance control is activated.
