No - CMBS is an option on top of the EX-GT.

CMBS is OK in an ideal situation but if your being tailgated and the car in front brakes you have to make a conscious decision of how hard to brake to avoid both front and rear collisions.

I can see a few rear enders with computer controlled auto braking.

That's the same with CMBS or not

CMBS gives the driver 2 warnings before preparing the driver for impact and applying the brakes - it cannot apply the brakes any harder than is physically possible - which a driver could do at any time. So I can't see CMBS being any more problematic for rear enders than normal braking.

Couldn't agree more, that's the way I see it (and why I haven't ordered it).

There's no substitute for early observation and awareness.
