Why no Blind Spot Monitor (AKA Blind Spot Information System)? Is it offered in the European versions of the Cascada? Every car I've purchased since 2007 has it and I consider it the most important safety device that could be offered.

When the Cascada arrives in the US, I will buy it, as long as the Blind Spot Monitor is offered on the top options list. If not, I will buy an A5/S5 or an E350/E400 drop top.

If you adjust your mirrors correctly then you will not have a blind spot. If you can see your car in your side view mirror then you are doing it wrong.

With no "B" pillar and two outside rear view mirrors there is no blind spot on the Cascada. We have an SUV that has blind spot warning light in the rear view mirrors, but the "B" pillar is directly beside my head and line of vision when you scan the mirror. Several times I have almost side swiped a passing car with this too little of a warning system. ( You have to set the driver's rear view mirror out beyond any view of the side of the SUV to overcome this problem). I love the the Cascada and its wide open side vision.
