Just tested the unit and everything works perfectly! I felt like I got a pretty good Idea of what it would look like, and despite the fact that I had extremely high expectations, i was still blown away! It is awesome, you did an amazing job Ofer! I am too excited to wait until January to install this, so I am pushing it up to this saturday or sunday and I can't wait to see the finished product!

No, the harness that Ofer made has three plugs. One plug goes into the HUD unit, one into the control switch, and the third is a two sided plug and one side of the plug goes into the gauge pack and the other side plugs into the actual car. I probably explained this weird, but once it is in front of you, it is really self explanatory on where everything goes.

Finished up my install today! The only issue right now is I am getting a clicking sound in the shifter area when in park and I press the brake. Look at it after the football game.

Did it all myself and took my time (with a lot of notes) over two weekends. What is weird is my wife didn't ask one time what I was doing or why the 90% of the interior was on the garage floor and shelves. I am thinking I may find she makes a large purchase on my credit card soon - way too much silence! .

Bumping this to ask a question. Anyone here swapped out their windshield for a HUD windshield? And if so, was it worth it? Mine is starting to looking like Swiss Cheese so I'm considering putting in new glass - and the HUD glass is almost $300 more.

Why don't you get it replaced through your insurance?

That's crazy it's that much more, when I had min replaced they said they cost the same. It was nearly $600 for both. But cost me $100 for the deductible.

I told her I don't have the HUD yet but I plan to install it, she said they can't replace it with a HUD windshield unless it's installed already.

This would be only the second windshield I've ever had replaced in my 35+ years of driving so I've never opted for the glass replacement rider - so it's covered under my 1k deductible. Therefore I'll pay out-of-pocket on this one. Did a local quote and the non-HUD is about $350 and the HUD is about $600.

Not a huge hurry - just playing w/ the idea right now & wondering if the HUD glass made the 'wow' difference for someone who did Ofer's HUD isntall.

I was one of the first persons (actually the second person on the West Coast) to install a HUD unit in their car. So far I have my original windshield, now when it comes time to have to replace my windshield I will upgrade to the HUD windshield.

Oh gotcha, weird glass is included in our comprehensive and comp. is required, collision only when there is a lein holder.

I wish I went through that few windshields. Seriously 2-3 per vehicle, and everyone I know goes through at lest 1 a year here... Some last longer only because they don't replace them right away LOL

Interesting to hear the non hud is cheaper the shop I went to said there was only one supplier, so it looks like there are more now.

Looks like the 2013 car at this time you can not add HUD to them as there is now wires to make it a plug and play harness, and i do not believe there is a program in the BCM

You should be able to pick up the HUD windshield for around $200.... (maybe $100 in shipping) Call Pilkington Classics (google for the .com)

The HUD glass will make the image very clear.

Even an after market hud unit? I see some on eBay that say it will work. But I fear they would be so bad they plug into the Cigarette lighter.

trying to do this now. We got as far as getting the 2010 dash out, but the center duct does not fit on the 2012 dash. I was told "direct replacement" I don't think so.


Also how do you get the passenger airbag out to go to the other dash?

I just finished mine and it all fit. Oh, I just reread that. The 2010 center vent will not work it needs the 2012 vent. Also, getting the airbag out was a pain. I basically pried out 1 side and it fell out. The connector is a royal pain also. The clip that holds the connector to the dash appears to be a 1 time use becasue it has 2 tabs that spread out when it is inserted. Maybe 2 small screwdrivers pushing on both sides you could pry it out.

So I did this mod today and I will say I am very happy with the results! I also did the 2012 dash upgrade since I was pulling it out anyways. A few things I notcied along that way that may help others.

-The top center bolt under the defrost grill is a PAIN in the A**! Getting out was pretty easy, putting it back was hard. I finally used the right combo of wobble extensions and duct tape on the bolt head to work it in. Also, DON'T FORGET to tie a string on the light sensor plug and pull it through wihile putting the dash in.

-I didn't see it in the guide but don't forget to pull the headlamp switch out before pulling the dash out.

-The battery bolts at least on my car were 10mm.

-The clock spring was my biggest worry. The guid doesn't say to remove it but the picture shows it gone. I tried to remove it but the bottom plug wasn't coming off so I left it on place and tapped it so it couldn't rotate. Also, I watcehd a youtube video on resetting it and checked mine before I mountedthe wheel.

-The guide has you leave a black plastic piece of the dash under the steering wheel installed also this is what the fuse box mounts to. The new dash had this already so I removed mine with the dash so you have to removed the hood latch and OBDII connector first.

-I took the time when reinstalling to polish the gauge cluster screen and radio screen while they were out which made it very easy.

-According to the Alldatadiy guide the passenger airbag is not supposed to be removed from the dash. I did it anyway. I used a screwdriver and gently pried the plastic away from the tabs holding it in on 1 side. Once they were all off it came right out. The connector sucks, just take your time on it.

I think that covers it. Also, for most of the screws/bolts I just screwed them back in where I took them out from. For the ones that I couldn't do that with I wrote on an index card what they were for and out them on top in order of how they came out.
Really, it isn't that hard. The result it very good. The larger MPH font looks very good, the smaller fonts have a slight ghost but not bad at all. Also depends on how you sit I notcied. Also, not sure if in the factory HUD cars this happens but when sun shines directly on the dash the HUD reflects on the window and makes it alittle harder to read but otherwise daylight reading is fine.

Brian

I found at least 5 screws in the guide and PPT that were not documented and removed. The fusebox wasn't that bad to remove you have to release the clips from behind.

Before putting the dash back in if you want to use the GM lamps for ambient lighting in the footwell use that then.

Be careful when putting the dash back on, lock the steering wheel so you can get that over. Also make sure you cover the frame with the glove box, that was another spot we had a problem.

I also couldn't get my shift knob off, but we could work it around.

To get the airbag out, we pryed the plastic one tooth at a time, then rocked it out. It simply pushed right into place on the new dash.

I never did get the bolt on the front of the dash in all the way, but I did put some electrical tape behind the hole to hold it in place.

The center speaker is a pain to get out we found just pull it up and out when the dash is halfway in to plug it back in.

Someone give me a part number for the center duct. It appears that I just pull the leather trim to mount it to there.. I think I might be able to use the old one looking like crap for a little while though.

The center vent number for the 2012 dash is 20965303.

Also, the center vent actually attaches to the leather trim piece. I used the screws from the old center vent plus it need 1 more that I had extra from the old dash.
