Default Adding a HUD Display to a 2003 SLE

Hi,

I'm looking into trying to add the HUD Display to a 2003 SLE...anyone out there tackled this before? I've got the materials lined out but I'm having trouble figuring out how much wiring is already in place and what I'll need to do. Any thoughts? Thanks!

I belive it involves an entire dash swap, otherwise there aren't many wires required for a hud...maybe 8. However also I'm not sure what is involved on your datalink system.

3 cars of previous generations have done it.

You need a Factory Service Manual set, the entire dash, dash trim, HUD, controls, and alot of patience. Then you need a new windshield to kill the double image your non-HUD windshield will give you.

Did you actually do the upgrade? How did it go? What did it cost?

This is their only post. I don't believe they took on the project of swapping the dash.

I think a project on this scale would be cost prohibitive at best. Not to mention the surgery it would take and the electronic integration and last but not least, this would be a monumental labor intensive project. just my .02
