I just found the 550i Heads up to be distracting, maybe its different now? I hear the heads up improved a little bit.
I don't see any kind of "metallic" reflection at all during the day. There's a reflection of the dash onto the front window, but it certainly isn't "metallic".

No, yes and yes.
Remember, this is a new generation of display, so the graphics may be different to other HUDs

All BMW HUDs have allowed them to be turned on or off, control the brightness and position.

There is no reflection. I don't know what that person is talking about. I've used one on multiple bmws for the last 6 years.

Just put a sheet of felt on the hud screen if you don't want it. No big deal.

Clean cars are happy cars!

BMW has definitely turned me off from buying this car with their bundling, line restrictions and color options.

The bundling is a bit unreasonable, but I must say that I'm glad that Nav comes with HUD. That was kind of a bonus reason to get the NAV FOR ME.

On the negative side, I had to purchase NAV to get BMW APPS. I really had no intention of getting NAV in the first place, but since I must, it is a bonus to have HUD.
