Forgive me if this was already asked, but what exactly is the Side assist option?

It is basically a lateral blind spot radar detection system (currently available in the Q7 in Europe). It notifies you with a light in your outside rear view mirrors of the presence of a vehicle on your side - if you are driving on the motorway, and another vehicle is on your side (possibly in the blind spot of your mirrors), it notifies you of the vehicles presence by a small light next to the mirror - extra safety for people that are sometimes absent-minded.
