any BMW models have HUD?
Yes. The FW-24/25 chasis driven by Ralf Schumaker is suppose to have HUD integrated into his helmet and plugged into the on-board computer on the chasis.

TECHNICALLY that's a BMW I guess.

I would rather have HTS and HARM on my Bimmer. :)

HTS = Harm Targeting System
Harm = high speed anti-radiation missile (targets radars)

Actually, HUDs are great. It's really a shame that it hasn't caught on.

On my last car, I was definitely distracted by HUD for the first day or two. However, it became second nature quickly...and I grew to love it. Even the simple on on my car was useful - I could see how fast I was going without taking my eyes off the road. It would also project my turn signals, low fuel, and a few other things.

The C5 HUD does all this and more. You can program it to cycle through several sensor values. In addition, your RPMS are projected onto a digital tach, right above your speed. It's one of the coolest and most useful options I ordered.

doesn't it get distracting with the numbers always changing?

sorta like digital speedometers...

Nope. It's basically two digits, and they don't really change that much if you think about it. It's really quite useful.
