bzabodyn Watched the video a few times now and it still amazes me every time I watch it... i'm surprised the gas gauge doesn't move to empty faster than the rpms when you're cruising over 8k!!!

Do you know what the gps speed was at an indicated 211 mph?
The GPS was 197 mph. I used a WAAS enabled GPS receiving WAAS signals around Frankfurt Intl. The GPS was accurate.

Interesting observation! Is this standard for all M5's?

Ok I read it again:
"its quite easy to get past 200 on the GPS, and even at 208 it wasn;t quite touching 8000rpm".

You wrote about GPS speed in this sentence. Where does it say the 208 was on the speedometer or HUD?

The difference between speedometer and gps is not always the same percentage. Usually the higher the speed, the bigger the difference. But I do welcome your new video. Did Russ actually tell this board what his HUD was displaying at top speed? Anyone?
