Extended display available on F30?

Is the extended LCD display available on the F30?

I know in the 5 series you can get a full LCD display (as opposed to just a small rectangle under the tach) if you get the HUD.

However in a review of the 328i (with HUD) I noticed it did not have an extended display.

Does anyone know?

I think you're referring to the black panel display. Not an option on the 3series yet (though probably will be in the LCI). The 3 does however have two instrument clusters one is the standard one and one is the extended display which includes information such as EcoPro and Navigation.

Full Black Panel Display is available in the UK, standard with some options.

As a stand alone option (for all models) is referenced 6WA and £140 (sterling).

Strange if some markets don't get it.

Ah, so its called Full Black Panel Display. Thanks for the heads up.

Thats a real bummer that its not available in the US. My eyes are really sharp and its going to stick out like a sore thumb to me, but I guess I can live with it if I'm willing to pull the trigger on one.

I think it comes with Full Black Panel if you select Professional Navigation, otherwise you have to add 6WA as stated above, but it doesn't show up in the configurator (in Sweden at least). The seller can add it though.

AFAIK, full black panel like F10 is not available on F30 yet.
First 2 pics are the F10 black panel on & off.
Third pic shows F30 extended panel - you can see the small LCD panel - I think this is called black panel in UK.
