I have this on my wife's 2011 Mini Countryman. I bought it from Amazon for $105 in September last time they had a deal like this, so this would make it cheaper than what I got it for.
Works well--though the grid lines seem like they were designed for trunk/tailgate-mounted license plates. The Countryman has a bumper-mounted plate, so the camera is closer to the ground. It makes objects on the side of the car closer than the lines says they are.

The video takes about 1 seconds to fire up after we put the car in reverse and there isn't any (noticeable) delay in the video feed.

Fortunately, I didn't have to worry about the computer on the Mini throwing errors as with some BMW's and Mercedes--otherwise, I'd have to hard-wire the power to a clean source. It saved me some time and googling.

I'd totally buy this again if I had a another car that needed it.

Is it a true wireless or some drilling required?

Haven't tried this specific one but the model I have seems to be the same camera from the sam brand, but fully wired to my aftermarket head unit. It's amazing. Better than my 2015 and 2017 Hyundai's oem cameras and better than the 2018 jeep/Chrysler cameras ( just test drove some, and those cameras are junk.); The picture is great and the light works great.

It is wireless in terms of not having to connect the camera itself to the screen that's embedded in the rear view mirror. This way, you don't have to run a wire from the back of your car, all the way to the front.

You still have to run the wire from the camera itself (which will be attached to your license plate) to one of your taillights for power. That part may require drilling.
For my car, I did have to drill a small hole in my bumper to fish the wires into my trunk, then to the taillight.
YMMV.
I watched the following video to understand what kind of wires and runs I had to do:

It's not the exact same model, but it's pretty close. The biggest difference is the model in the video uses a dedicated screen vs. the screen being embedded in the rear view mirror. The camera itself is more or less the same.

I just received mine and it was very easy to install.

I did have to drill a small hole in my trunk to feed the wire, and instead of messing with the wire harness to figure out which one is the 12v reverse line, I just exposed some of the red wire and shoved it in the bulb socket, and grounded the black cable to the car chasis.

I also cut off the cigarette lighter plug and hooked the red wire to an add a fuse wire and piggy backed off my cigarette fuse since it only powers on when the car is turned on.

All of this took maybe 2 hours without rushing.

Everything works great so far

I want the backup camera that will transmit via Bluetooth or wireless to my smart phone. Anyone seen that?
