Default I need a new windshield...NOW with a Pic

This is what it looked like, I got a new one today. Cost me 180$ total!! So I was pretty happy!

Top right, through the rearview mirror and it ends near the left of the screen somewhere.

3 guys here have done HUD installs. Keotok, Damemorder....and who was the 3rd? Now'* the time to do it if you're considering it.

Most car insurance has a glass deductible. If it'* 100 bucks or less, most glass places will waive it. I get a new windshield for free (HUD/Heated) every year or two.

The thing with the hud is, should I use the stock components or get something aftermarket, if that is possible?

And.....I just got PA Tags on my car, which means I have 10 days (like 7 now) to get it inspected before I pay a fine or something. So time is ticking down very fast! I could use all lthe info about Hud into Non Hud Bonnes right now. Monday, im taking it into a shop and gonna see if they can repair it, but I dont think they can. Its about three feet long, maybe more.

ok call your insurance and ask them if you have a glass deductable, if you do when you go into the shop make sure to tell them that you need a special windshield for the HUD

Asking for a HUD windshield isn't going to work. It'* not OEM glass for your car.
