Is it possible to get a HUD fitted on an SSV (non redline) ?
I don't know about genuine Holden, but i'm pretty sure there's some aftermarket HUDs available for a couplahunnid
Yeah I have seen some aftermarket ones but would prefer genuine. I've searched around, there's not really any discussions about it out there....therefore assuming it's either not possible, or not worth the $$$ if it is.
It would be a large expense . It is my understanding even the windscreen is different
Why of course it would be.....
What you're saying is that it would be cheaper to trade your 2013 SSV for an MY2016 2015-build SSV which has one standard?
about $1700 - There is a place in mulgrave Vic that can do it
No , but maybe. I tend to buy cars with the options I want. Then this issue doesn't arise
I'd love to hear your reasoning behind this?
Well some aftermarket ones require a glossy panel be stuck to the glass to increase visibility of the HUD. Its not that far fetched that they have a different windscreen for HUD models, just see if the calais (with HUD) and SV6 (without HUD) have the same part number on the windscreen.
My 2016 SSV has HUD written on the screen along with the manufactures info so I assume it is a special screen. I made sure I took windscreen cover with my insurance just in case it costs lots !
So it is actually a different screen..interesting. I would love to know what the "actual" difference is between the standard and HUD specified screen.
its a coating/film to make the HUD appear on the screen, otherwise, it will just be distorted and blurry and shine through the windscreen
Sometimes you don't know how much you really want it. I dismissed it as a useless gimmick which I wouldn't have paid extra for; and now I'm totally hooked on HUD. However did I cope having to look away from the road so often to keep Plod unhappy?!
HUD is one of the best features ever installed in a car, I love it. Being in Victoria probably plays a part in it though, bloody nanny state an all that.
Can a full genuine HUD system be installed in a non HUD VF SV6 MY15
I think you'd be replacing half your dash with Calais &/or SS bits; can't see it being reasonably worth dping.
It’s widescreen for your viewing pleasure.
Retail for a genuine windscreen to suit HUD is $1200, did get a better deal than that from Holden. I know because I broke mine.
Did someone say widescreen?
