LED indicators in the RPM dial?

Hi am really confused i thought the E46 M3 LEDs in the rev counter were really usefull and a really cool cosmetic feature? why would they not install them doesnt make sense !are they definately not available in the E90 M3?

It will be like the E60 M5. There is still a yellow and red line that comes up to the correct rpm. So the feature is there. They just don't use the lights anymore. It still is very nice IMO, maybe even a little classier.

By the way. Are you asking because you like the way the LED's in SMG equipped M3's also show when to shift gear?

:rocks:

yes that is another function which i thought was really good! i mean these things made the car so unique from the standard 3er, never mind the competition, i know ive been cut down for reposting, but these little things, are what make it an M when you sit in turn the ignition, light up in a certain manner look good but are functional too, unlike sitting in a DB9 turn on the ignition the MPH and RPM needles goto the max and return to zero, and a screen comes up with power and soul or something thats tacky! but i hope the new M3 "gadgets" are similar if not an improvement which they should be.

I hope they incorporate shift LEDs like they have in F1 cars..... A line of LEDs on the dash or steering wheel somewhere

On the M5 / M6 with the HUD, the HUD is too slow and if you use the HUD, you bounce off the rev limiter, so you need to use the old tach.

Just a pipe dream.

We sometimes make mistakes with repostings (wrong search term, temporary blindness, etc.). I know I did when I was a new member. No worries.

Thankyou!

I saw th HUD working in the M5, friends car, must admit it looks awesome n honestly wanted it, but i was always unsure of how quick and accurate it would be as it is projected (am i right?) and projection units in my experiance generally have a sluggish response time, so i think things like temp or initial start may affect the clarity of writing, i am not sure as i havent driven a M5 long enough! maybe someone who has could enlighten me, love the seats you feel as though you are in a roler coster!! what ever the dash has in it i cant wait to be snapping the tacho to red line n hear the beast roar! !

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.
