He was asking if the windshield is different if you have Lane Departure Warning. He already knows there is a diff for HUD. I don't know either, but it's a good question.

There is a difference. If you use a std windshield with HUD, you get a double image, due to the laminate layer. I'm not sure what they do for HUD, but it is a different windshield.
