As you all know, as well as increasing throttle response, the "sport" button on the E39 increases the "weight" of the steering which is excellent on the twisties.

I wonder whether BMW have incorporated a similar function into the M-drive or Power modes of the E60 M5. Every other parameter including gearshift speed seems to be variable so how about the steering weight?

Servotronic with two control maps.

Servotronic controls the power assisted steering independently via
control maps, depending on the road speed and engine speed. This solves the fundamental problem of obtaining a balance between a high level of assistance for best possible parking comfort and the low level of assistance required for dynamic driving at high speeds. The driver is then in less danger
of “tearing” at the steering wheel while suddenly swerving to avoid an obstacle.
The M5 features two different Servotronic mappings, both corresponding
with the currently prevailing EDC mode, i.e. either a very sporty or a more comfortable mode. In the sporty mode steering is very direct and the driver receives an immediate, precise response during the high lateral acceleration that occurs when taking fast bends. The comfort mode gives preference
to motoring comfort. Both mappings provide the driver with even steering behaviour and optimum response.
