I think they put it on the inside of the mirror so you'll still check the mirror. If it was on the HUD then some people would never check the mirror and just drive by the display.

I love my Alpine White with 19" wheels! I have ceramic controls but really wouldn't miss them if I didn't. My wife's Z4 is space grey and I don't really dig that color.
