1st, I sure don't remember that song playing on the radio when you making the video...............................

2nd, it is one of the first CTF cars in the 2011 fleet. Not a Mule, but a pre production car.

And I understand why some don't like it, but it does, as others have described above display some pretty good information. Radio stations, too. The video for some reason shows it smaller than you would see it from the drivers seat. I think because Tribone shot the video from the steering wheel, not the drivers eye, so it is much more impressive in person.

Nicely done sir. Good post of THE major feature of the 2011 Camaro...............convertible not included.

I'm sort of unimpressed. And why is it not directly in front of the driver? It seems like 1/3 over on the windshield (I'm assuming the person filming this was sitting in the driver's seat facing straight ahead, which should put the HUD directly in front). It seems kind of small, jamming that much info into a 2"x3" box. Plus it requires special windshields should it ever chip or crack (glass coverage will be a higher insurance premium).

The Z06 has it dead center in front of the driver (http://www.splak.net/fbody/zo6/Phone056.jpg or http://www2.dupont.com/Automotive/en...50606_high.jpg) so I'm really hoping this video just has weird angles.

I dunno. I just don't know.

Hmm, not really impressed. Maybe you have to see it in person.

Yes. Correct. Among other packaging issues that need resolved, like still no C&C option package for the 1SS for '11.

HUD is great. Lots & lots of people want it. But not everyone. Make it an option. I'd get it, but again, don't make too much 2LT/2SS only and only standard on them...choice...choice is nice...

Basically the same HUD as I had on the 2006 Corvette I traded in on my Camaro. They are pretty cool but more of a gimmick than a necessity. Still, I'm sure everyone will want one!!!

I think it should be an option....just like a LS with a LS3. A real copo car. Only option is a LS3 and six speed manual. I even want it with the steelies.

They missed the boat on this one. They should have looked at any top selling racing video game and modeled the format after that. also MUCH MUCH BIGGER!!!!

damn....
and i was waiting for 2011 for this?

I think it would be great to have. I used to have HUD on my old Altima the very first year they came out...WOW that was forever ago seems like. I really missed it on my Audi when buying. If this was an option to put on the 2010 I would think about it. Maybe they will have aftermarket dash. If done at res cost might do

The HUD image seems very DISTRACTING. The image needs to be projected lower on the windshield so that it appears just above the hood of the car, not in the middle of the road. Is the position of the HUD image adjustable?

Basically, it just projects your speed ( and a few other small things ) on your window, but I would find it too distracting as I drive. I feel my eyes would be constantly drawn to it. I think the current dash board indicator is just fine for what I'm looking for and really wouldn't want to pay an extra $400 or so more for this.

That's pretty much what I was refering to when I said "( and a few other small things )" Esentially, GM should've just removed the center dash monitor and installed the HUD at no cost since it does the same thing.

I don't need to look at my windshield to know how fast I'm going .... I'm pretty sure the Speeding ticket will tell me the same and yet, still cost me $150 less than the HUD!

This is right out of some turkey's drugged out mind as I kept waiting for the driver to kill someone since you really can't focus on the road too well with this one.

A little disappointing i don't even think i will spend the extra money to get the HUD especially if i can only get it on a 2LT.

Did the SS label on the gas gauge come standard? My 2SS does not have that. Regards
