F12 / F13 (2012 - Current)
The future is now! The all new 6 series coupe (F12) and convertible (F13) details are out and dealers are taking orders. Still no word on when the 4 door Gran Coupe will go into production.

Head up display - doesn't show speed limit?

Finally splurged and bought a 2012 650xi. I noticed the head up display doesn't show the speed limit next to the current speed, like the 2013 that I test drove. I thought that was a neat feature! Is this something that was added in for 2013? Can this be changed any way?

Thanks

Speed limit information is a component of the driver assistance package therefore you would need HUD and DAP

Speed limit info is not available in the 2012 model year. I had hoped it was when I bought mine a year ago. Last I had heard it was to be introduced in the US in the 2013 model year. It is available in Europe.

I think it can be coded to show. Not positive on that though, it might just show it through the dash and not HUD.

Check out this thread for info.

+1. My 2012 doesn't have it either. It's one of those features I'm curious about but won't lose any sleep over (like lane keep assistant, etc.).
