And

V nice spec .I have the hud and totally love it. Looks cool coming out of the dash and shows you mph sat nav directions and cruise plus radio channels and next and previous tracks . .without taking your eyes off the road much. If you get t h e driver assist pack it shows speed limit too apparently though I haven't. I love it.

Yeah the HUD is the main reason I started looking at them as It looked amazing, do you have any pics of yours on mate sounds could swe what it's like and yeah I didn't get the drivers assistance pack as I test drove one with it on and I can't see myself using any of it

Congrats Josh! What an awesome build :) Nice to see more interest in the white silver- it seems to be one of the least popular colors. I can't wait to see pictures!!

Lovely spec Josh, I really like the White Silver. I am wondering about how the HUD will be without the driver assistant pack too; I think even without the speed limit display it will still be a cool gadget to have as others have already said.

What is the eta for your Mini? :)

I went to see the HUD in person because all the pics and videos I found on the internet were underwhelming. Because of the way the image is projected onto the HUD screen it appears larger the further away you are from it. People have the camera in front of them, closer than their eyes would be when driving, so the text on the HUD is very small in the photos.

In real life it is larger and quite readable (which was my concern). It still doesn't fill the screen, but this allows for different seating positions and different sized drivers... the displayed image changes position on the screen as your head moves around. There are adjustments to move it up and down and to rotate it on the screen. Also, some types of sunglasses make the HUD go almost invisible.

I added it as a toy, but it's become indispensible, especially with the satnav. You get your next turn instruction right there in front of you, with street name and distance countdown as you approach. Some large junctions have lane guidance too.

Yeah i have found it hard getting pictures of people with white silver, but I think it looks really nice and I got black viper stripes and red wing mirrors and indacator surrounds to split the colour up a bit

Yeah i liked it as a gadget but think it will be worth having it as a ease of driving. I'm just excited to get it to be honest, does anybody know if you can add packs such as the Harmon kardon and the JCW Performance pack later on after you already have the car

Jcw pack probably yes but anything involving wiring probably no since the wiring looms are made exactly to your spec. No spare wires!

Hey Josh the JCW performance pack isn't availible in the states yet
Oh how annoying I bet they release it start of next year for you guys, it's released over here as it is in the brochure for extras but it was like £2500 so I decided for now not to and then I will buy it next year sometime to add it on
