I know that if you order HUD you dont get the green band front windshield. I just prepaid for a Huper Optik Drei tint for my 650i. So just wanted to fnd out if the front windshield has any kind of tint/infra red/UV blocker if the HUD is ordered as an option. Or do I have to tint the upper part of the windshield to cut the glare and heat?

I found out that tint (HO) makes your windows look green.

Just FYI. It ends up looking like the home windows with the UV protection. A slight tinge of green.

You must be talking about the OP Sech tint. The OP Sech film has a green/yellowish tint to it. This is what they normally sell 95% of the time.

The Drei (I believe that's 3 in German) is about 25% more expensive and has a greyish/overcast look to it. The reason for the premium is that it is two layer ceramic tint that reduces heat by 70%. Uv and infra red by >98% and the tint is only 35%. Just about the best specs I have seen. I just came back from the tint shop and I am pretty sure about the colors.

You should ask a dealer your original question but two major headaches after driving around without sunglasses for 2 days leads me to believe the front windshield doesn't have jack squat on it as far as tint. I've got heads up display.

I have HO Ceramic 60% on the front windshield and I have the HUD. No problems experienced.
