In the M5, the writing was always good, it never changed. However I did notice that if I was driving in S6(or any other mode) and I was trying to accelerate really fast, when looking at the HUD I had to shift when it was yellow as if I waited a bit in yellow then it would hit the rev limiter. The resposnse time was a little slow because the revs just circled the dials way to fast. I absolutely love the HUD as it was very practical also in daily driving. However the response time needs some work still. Don't get me wrong though, the difference with real time is prob. less than 0.1 secs. But that little time difference makes all the difference when you are driving for performance.
