Also, found the HUD display made some distracting reflections on the front windshield for me - the outline/glossy panel. And the show stopper for me was polarized sunglasses - the HUD does not work with them. I cannot drive in the day without polarized lenses to increase the contrast of the pavement and to see inside other car's windows/windshields.

I can understand how some would like this, but it would not work in my case. I also think the F10 dash is one of the best laid out and clearest, thus diminishing the appeal of a HUD. I'd urge anyone to check it out (HUD) on an F10 before putting this in your order.

Point taken and I understand.

I don't have the HUD, it just doesn't bother me(I saw it once on a E60 M5) and with the Pro Nav the nav arrows and written comment where to go etc also appears on the dash down in the middle between the revcounter & speedometer where normally the mileage/outsidetemp etc appears. That's nice and works fine as well. FWIW

Cheers
