The reason why I thought I didn't have it is because I was on the Lexus site and the build your own features for the IS has BSM with rear cross-traffic alert for the Luxury package and BSM for the F-Sport. Maybe the new F-Sport builds now only have BSM?

My paperwork does say I have rear cross-traffic, but I'm not incline to believe everything on it. It also claims I have auto-dimming, auto-tilting side mirrors... which I don't.

If I could, I would load everything onto my IS: memory seats, ventilated seats, heated steering wheel, windshield wiper defroster, auto-sensing wipers, fog lights, park assist, lane departure, adaptive cruise control, rear power sunshade, auto-folding/auto-tilting/auto-dimming side mirrors, power windows up from key fob, power trunk. I'm really lazy apparently... a lot of these features are power or auto.

They are tied to the same option package. You get one, you get the other.

One of the few options that I spec'ed, trying to keep my IS350 around $40k.

There's a green light on the rear view mirror? I only see the red light which is an indicator that the homelink garage system is on. I have BSM as well. I don't think it's an option to turn the auto dimming off and on for the 3rd gen IS, I had a green light for my 2nd gen IS.
