Drove 180km today. Everything is just fantastic!

Just one issue - there seems to be a defect in my windscreen.
The HUD is blurry when I watch it from certain angles.
Anyone else have this?

Thanks! It´s nice to be back in the M5 family again.
Exactly 7 years ago I took delivery of my Silverstone M5 E60.
Drove it for 4 years before moving to an M3 E92.

I don't get the blur that you are talking about, the only thing is that when you are seeing it from a certain angle it tends to cut off(depending on the angle im at), so I have to be sitting right in the middle of the seat.

The HUD on my 550 went blurry after change to new windscreen, they tried to calibrate it but did´nt get it so good as it was with the factory windscreen

Aprox 3 weeks left to my M5 delivery

Maybe this is why one of the changes to the 2013 M5 is a new windshield?

Congrats on your order too!

Cool feature - open the trunk with Your foot!
I thought it was not included on my M5 - but I was wrong.

Cidair: keep me posted when you will take the M5 to STO and you will have a ride in my 1M Coupe.
