I wonder if it was possible to order so you could see the speed in the front window on the E39 M5? I tested a 535d E60 with that function.

I think you are referring to the heads up display (HUD). This is a new item introduced on the E60 and was not available on the E39.

I have an Origin (OB2) GPS unit installed next to my speedo and I use that as my primary speedometer. It is right next to my line of sight and almost as good as HUD.

to do a H.E.D. would involve some dash mods, and not be worth it in my mind.

I tend to know what speed i'm at by the gear i'm in and the rpm range that i can feel.

I've driven a cadillac with the (HUD), I found it to be very distracting and I ended up turning it off:(
