Yup after driving it, I'd have to say it looked pretty good.. No double image

I am starting to wonder if that has anything to do with the EZ Cool Glass which has a type of tint in it...

It'* an extra layer in the laminated glass specifically inserted for HUD reflection.

I agree with that... But It did look pretty good on Pats car... It was a Tad better and clearer on Brads car when I drove it last.. But for a stock windshield, It looks quite good

On a sidenote, I remember the earlier days when I saw the Maximas that had them and it was a little piece of film on the inside of the windshield..

when i replaced my factory GM HUD glass with an after market HUD glass, i got a better image, with the factor there was a slight(hardly noticeable) double image. with the new one its Perfect. i was quite surprised

Default EyeCue Display

Is the EyeCue display the exact same as the Pontiac HUD? Cuz I was just in a LaSabre a few weeks ago and it did have a HUD.

These links are to brochures for LeSabre listing it as an option.
