I love the HUD, only $1,000 option.
Head-Up Display projects important travel information, such as current speed, on the windshield directly in the driver`s line of vision. Directional arrows from the navigation system, Check Control data, and optional Active Cruise Control* functions can also be displayed. (Note: not available with green band windshield).
*Active Cruise Control is not a substitute for the driver`s own responsibility in adjusting speed and otherwise controlling the vehicle. Due to the road, traffic and visibility conditions, the driver decides whether and how the system is used.
Way cool . . . that's what I thought it was, but I couldn't find any info on it at BMWUSA.Com. I must be blind or something.
I think the new Bimmers will date themselves with the iDrive feature. Not sure how best to go about it, but that knob interface is not the most futuristic IMO. Almost seems like a throwback with the HUD in the same car.
