I know, I drive someone elses car and I don't even think about looking at the speedometer.

I got used to the HUD, so I don't really even look at it, I just know my speed seeing it in the bottom of the window, but not really looking at it.

Always on, full bright. It'* not the least bit distracting. If it is distracting for you, try it on low light for awhile and gradually increase the brightness over a period of several weeks. I think you'll like it.

only time I look at it is when my car chimes (check gauges) and that liitle gas pump appears. So not often I pay any attention too it.

Wife'* 2004 LeSabre has it. I can't stand the d*mned thing, and neither can she.

Ah well, if it nets us $50 more when we sell the car, I'll be happy

I love mine, but the 99 SLE doesn't have one. I miss it, but I can live without it. Driving a car with a HUD feels really good.
