Can you see it if you use polarized sunglasses? That is the I had with HUDs in other cars and California is usually sunny so it is a problem here.
You can barely see it with polarized glasses. If you want to use it during the day you’ll need non-polarized lenses.

That's why I didn't order it. The HUD in our e-tron almost disappears when wearing polarized sunglasses and I couldn't see spending $1850 on an option that would turn out to be useless at least 1/2 the time.

With the questions on fast charging I was intrigued to see what PlugShare showed for fast chargers in Ireland. I see 8 over 120kW and 6 of which are over 200kW. (Note 2 in Kill on each side of motorway)

Thank you - the Satin Aurum wheels are love or hate
With respect to your wheels, I would never of had the nerve to order them, but I do absolutely love them, and think they are gorgeous and amazing addition to your car.

If you get a chance, can you please take some more pictures of the head up display on the dash. I ordered that too.

My car is docking in Houston tonight.

To be honest I am not sure I would had the nerve either . My local dealer got 4 Turbo S in stock for the new year and it was between this one and a Crayon one
Picked this one as it had HUD !

Pics attached for you

good luck with yours - they are amazing cars

Thanks , so far

1. PCM does feel snappier, no circle of death , loads fast
2. More hardware but wireless charging is cool
3. Home Screen layout looks different with an extra column on left (will post picture tomorrow as could be option I didn’t know about previously)
4. HUD is much further away than I expected (field of view without configuring shows the screens at the end of the bonnet almost)
5. Will add more tomorrow after longer usage
How do you like the bonnet on the HUD? Does it ruin the look in your opinion?

may be the daytime sun would just kill it ?

Not at all. I also live in a very sunny place similar to Dubai (Phoenix) and the HUD is plenty bright. ?

If possible do a drive video day time and night time, so we can see if its nice.
Weird, how porsche sells such expensive options,but doesnt show clearly on videos samples.

Have you ever had a HUD before? Every one I’ve ever seen is highly visible in the brightest conditions.
