Who wants the HUD system available ASAP?

I just wondering now many people really want this HUD system? I'm one of those people that really want the HUD available ASAP! So speak your mind!

HUD does Rock! HUD is something you see everytime you drive. So even though you may have nice looking gauge console, the HUD is just better more helpful everyday!

Don't want it, don't need it, just another piece of techno crap that makes the car cost more and something else that can screw up after the warrenty goes out and cost a bizillion dollars to get fixed...

(I just think for a street car it is not needed, just something to make your buddies go "Oooooh".)

I agree, but this a electronic so I though I would add it here. But if the Administrators are read and agree, they can move it.

Yes absolutely, I won't buy the Camaro until this option is available. I am all for the Tech options.

Not a fan, had it didn't ever use it. Better off using the $$$ for performance mods IMO.

Yes, they generally have a dial to move the reflection up and down to make up for different driver heights. No side to side movement, but then the reflection is designed not to go to the side, i.e. passenger wont be able to see it.

this is a good thing we need it when your flooring it and smoking up the scene who wants to look down and see what the mph or rpm's are at if it was right there in your face i believe it would be less accidents unless your one of those folks who can onle concentrate on one this at a time.....

Its fine that they take their time. I do not mean that the HUD has to be out when the car comes out but they are planning to add the HUD in Model year 2011!! Thats WAY too LONG! 6 months after the car comes out sounds fine with me. But not a 2 year wait!!

The HUD was not a deal breaker for me, and it was very spiffy looking in the Vettes I test drove to get a feel for a Hurst shifter.

Had it been available/will be made available before round 1 goes into production, i'd change my order to include it as long as it was not crazy expensive ($1k+ it's neat, but not that neat)

In the GMC Acadia the HUD is a $350 option, why would it cost anymore in a Camaro?

Doesn't matter, the HUD will be standard on 2SS in 2011.

The biggest thing I want to know is will the 2010 Camaro be prewired with a spot ready for it on the dash so we can get a dealer install when it does come out? Or does the 2011 have a different dash molded and wires made 1 model year later so that the above isn't possible?

You would need to replace the windshield as well. The HUD option has a specific area of the windshield that the image is reflected on.
