M5 Head up Display (HUD)

Can anyone confirm exactly what information will be available on the M5's HUD? My brochure and car information only provides some of the detail. Incidently can anyone give a review on how well or otherwise this system performs?

Thanks - New E60 in Silverstone / Silverstone due August, can't come soon enough.

Re: M5 Head up Display (HUD)

Gustav, I did see your report, it was excellent, however I don't recall must information on the HUD apart from a couple of photographs. Incidently the links for the M Mode and Regular mode are restricted and wont let me have access. Help please.....

Re: M5 Head up Display (HUD)

Now it works?

We wrote this:

Heads Up Dispaly (HUD): A must have. Works really good and makes the driving safer. Especially the M-Mode that comes with the M5 makes it a performance saloon with surgical precision. However in daylight it takes some time to get used to that you have it, you are looking at the regular instruments and dials out of old habit as well because they are in a nice design. In nighttime driving it is perfect and you almost wish you could dim off all the other dials and lights completely and only show the HUD.

Thanks for the info, however the links I mentioned still do not work, all I get is a message stating 'Forbidden'.

Re: M5 Head up Display (HUD)

I'm not sure i'd say HUD was a "must have" its just a toy.. very nice, but if it was a payfor option then I wouldn't buy it.

HUD lag?

Previously there were posts and comments in the press that the HUD lagged somewhat, especially in M Mode. I think specifically it was said that the rev counter in the HUD lagged quite abit behind the actual revs/rev counter.

Any comments?

Re: M5 Head up Display (HUD)

Ok, bringing back on older thread. Now that more and more M5 are in the market, anyone have some more feedback on the HUD option. Gustav had a nice write-up, but curious as to others opinions. Also, e6tme has a good question, that I would love to see answered:

From e6tme:
"Previously there were posts and comments in the press that the HUD lagged somewhat, especially in M Mode. I think specifically it was said that the rev counter in the HUD lagged quite abit behind the actual revs/rev counter.

Any comments?"

Re: M5 Head up Display (HUD)

If you download the e60 m5 owners manual, there is a section explaining the HUD in better detail. Try this thread:
