Different Windshields for Heads-Up vs Lane Departure?
My windshield took a rock while driving that promptly resulted in a 20" long crack, so I need to replace it. (Gah! I have Comprehensive but not Windshield Replacement coverage!).
Our F10 has the heads-up display, and I already knew that the windshield was different than for cars without it. When I called BMW dealership for a replacement estimate, they asked me the expected questions:
1) does your car have rain sensors? Yes
2) does your car have heads-up display? Yes
I would have assumed that once those two boxes were checked that would have been all they needed to select the proper windshield, but they then asked if the car has the Lane Departure Warning option.
Just curious, is there a different windshield for Lane Departure than for Heads-Up?
