It would be cool if the timers would use GPS to time laps ,sections and diffrent distances(as 1/4 mile),speed,G-forces etc and BMW could integrate that in the navigation display.
And additions to that show diffrent temperatures,pressures etc.
The Nissan GTR have something similar to that although i don't know how it measures lap times and such.

But i guess they need a much more accurate GPS unit like a Racelogic or Race technology for it to be really usefull but it would be cool if they make it standard or an option especially for the next M3/M4.
The 1/4 mile timer works when u start driving to when it reaches 1/4 mile distance.
