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?

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.

Right, but is all this going to be on the 2010 model or not? I heard that what we are waiting for is on the electronic manufacturers end... GM makes the windshield, so are they making a different windshield next year, or is the HUD windshield going to be on the 2010 car???

if they dont have the hud in the car they aren't going to pay extra to put a hud specialzed winshield in, thats just common sense.

(I just think for a street car it is not needed, just something to make your buddies go "Oooooh".)
Actually it is perfect for a street car, see when you get into a red-light race you dont have to glance down at your gauges to see your tach and speedo, thus preventing serious mistakes at speed. And making your friends go oooh and aaah is one of the reasons people buy Camaro's.

No idea why it would cost more, and did not know it would be included with the 2011 2SS package.
Just figured if it cost beyond X amount that the cost would out weigh the cool factor.

As much as I would love to say "Either put it in the 2010 Camaro, or I'm waiting till next year to buy" my current daily driven Camaro is getting up there in age and mileage, so it's time for a new car, HUD or not.

However if GM pulls that rabbit out of their hat for the 2010, I will be a very happy camper.
