MY 21 X5 m50i.
I have noticed rather substantial shading and black margins in the birds eye view of the camera system, particularly the in front of the bumper ( see attached picture).
Please confirm that it is normal and no alignment issue.
When watching reviews of the X5's camera system, it appears that the NA version has that glitch/ inaccuracy.
Just immediately noticeable as all my other cars have exact visualization, including the lower front bumper (curb) view.

I noticed this on my white x7 loaner but not on my black m50i. You can see the outline of the bumper on my car. I think this is a software issue but could be related to car color?

Did you ever get this resolved?

I had my dealer do a minor change to my car, when I got it back it looks like the picture you posted.

They took the car back and updated to 07/2020.45, but it still looks the same and they now claim that this is how it should be.

Im not sold on that answer, since Im rather sure it was not like this when I got my car.

Unfortunately, the inaccuracy is normal. After reviewing several videos and discussing this in a few blogs, it seems that the blindspot in the front of the car is sth BMW has not addressed.
Other models like the new 5 series have the same issue.
Never had this problem in any of my other cars, just annoying when parking in a tight spot having to manually switch to the front camera as the birds eye view merely shows a black spot.
