Default HUD Image

I was wondering if the 2000-2005 Bonnie'* had a HUD specific windshield. I know in the 88-96 Grand Prix'* there was a specific windshield. I ask because the image in my moms GXP is blurry and hard to read. Even at night the image is kinda dark, even with the brightness at the higest setting. I am also dissapointed of how small and low the image is. On my GP'* the image is twice the size and its almost directly in my line of view. On the GXP, i must look down and yes i did adjust the image height.

yes, HUD requires a specific windshield.

Which may account for the blurry image. I noticed from 95 to 97 when GM changed HUD'* the image became about 1/2 the size and the brightness was also reduced.

Having a few parts from Randy laying around, I checked another HUD and they are all the same on the post 96 cars.

14 months on lot? wow... the one at a dealership (same color as yours) finally was sold and that was definitely there at least in Dec '04.. was yours test-driven at least throughout the year? that should have helped the engine stay somewhat in shape

my car has no HUD, but has the HUD stamp on the windshield, i think it was replaced at some point and the wrong windshield was installed

GMPartsDirect.com lists different windshields for HUD and non-HUD
