The settings (gear cogs icon) should take you to option to turn guidelines on and off.

The gear cogs icon presents me with a screen where I can turn off the lines completely or only have the wheel lines. Will investigate a bit more tonight and take a couple of more photos.

This is what I see. No idea how to get the dotted lines to show up :(

Do you not have the two central icons that GSKM’s shows ?

I recall these were on both my DS’s. A 16MY and 17MY.

Stranger still mine shows the dotted lines at the side but not at the back? Anything to do with having a tow bar? I haven't got one on MY18 car.

Just to confirm you have pressed the the soft "two cogs" bottom in the bottom right corner you have posted? When you press this you will see two (or three if towbar fitted) buttons, press the top two (one after each other and its might return to the overhead parking graphic in between) to display the fat yellow lines (as above) and the distance markers (as per GSKM's picture). Third (bottom) button shows the single line for the tow hitch and switches off the aforementioned lines.

Hopefully this helps, if not back to the stealer....

So I played with it a bit yesterday evening and here are the results. The two cogs can be pressed only when the camera is activated manually, not when in reverse mode when it is activated automatically. In the reverse mode I can enable/disable radar graphics (on the images below), but neither of them has the dashed lines active:

When I activate the camera manually, I can see two buttons - one is the for the guidelines (which can be activated / deactivated) and the other one seems to be for the towbar, however it cannot be pressed and I don't have towbar installed to start with.

Thoughts?

Definitely take back to the dealer - very strange you have the towbar setting as (from experience on my MY 16 and MY 17 cars) this only became active/visible once I had wired in the towbar (both cars were delivered without) and when I removed the towbar from my MY 16 car it went away again.
