Can the internal camera that monitors your eyes for the autonomous driving in the i4, see through sunglasses?

Yes, as long as sunglasses do not block infrared

If the internal camera is similar to the infrared camera used by iPhones for Face ID, (sun)glasses should not make a difference.
But I’m not sure if the iPhone’s “Require Attention for Face ID” setting is as strict as the one used in the i4.

What autonomous driving is being referenced here? I was under the impression that this could would not have any self-driving comparable to something like a TM3.

Yea that is true, just like the TM3 the I4 does not have any self-driving capabilities. It is just a camera based lane keep assistant and a Radar based active cruise control.

The i4 (and most modern BMW with driver assistant professional option) actually adds a total self driving whit hands free up to 60 km/h for stop and go (Assisted Driving Plus), which is something I believe Tesla still doesn't offer.

This is similar to the Subaru EyeSight technology we have in our Ascent, and we love it. I wouldn't be interested in any car, including an i4, without it. In commuter and stop-and-go traffic, it takes so much stress out of it, and the computer has always seen the need to brake before I do. It makes a difference on the safety front.

From videos I've seen , I'm impressed with the stop and go feature. I have a Kona EV with Lane Keep Assist and from I've seen the i4 corners way better then my Kona at higher speeds.
