HUD without question has some safety advantges. Anyone who has driven a HUD car knows that it keeps you constantly aware of your speed and does not require you to look down. This technology has been used in aviation for some time for the very same reasons. As far as windshield replacement I believe my buddy with a C6 was quoted about any extra 50 bucks. I live in AZ and anyone who lives here gets zero deductible glass because we always need to get replacements about every year or two.

Finally, HUD is like any other option. The person who buys the car gets to decide how to spend their money. Some will get everything possible. Some will get a 1SS with nothing else. I respect everyones right to buy what they want. When it comes to HUD their seems to be a group that feels it is not macho or anyone who buys it is a fool. Personally I follow the golden rule. "He who has the gold makes the rules" Unless you are going to pay for my car you don't get a vote.

Seems track dogs appreciate the HUD and cruisers do not. That's why it would be an OPTION. BTW it more about the tach and shift light than speed display for those that have never driven a HUD equiped car on the track. And I liked to monitor my oil pressure on the HUD and oil temp in the DIC. Trust me on this, even with the Z51's additional oil coolers, my oil temp reach 304 at 315 the Corvette goes into a power reduced mode to protect itself so there are many other reasons and uses for the HUD.

Speed is MUST....i double clutch...i like my transmissions....if you want to double clutch...you must know the speed to Rev match...or else your synchros will go...no matter how nice you are on your transmission.
