Full Color Heads-up Display on BMW 3 series

Heads-up Display (HUD) was initially developed for military aviation and could be only seen in James Bond's automobile. However these days HUD is available as an optional feature on Audi, BMW, Camaro, etc.

BMW recently announced full color HUD on its all new 2012 BMW 3 Series. "With Head-Up Display, the time required by the driver to assimilate information is reduced by more than a half, the system making a decisive contribution towards concentrated and focused driving. The virtual image projected onto the windscreen is perceived as "hovering" at eye level above the bonnet and is visible only to the driver. Moreover, this form of display is less tiring, as the eye does not have to constantly change between close-range and remote vision. Also, the brightness of the image adjusts perfectly to the surroundings, so that the eye does not have to readapt each time."

BMW is going to be the first car manufacturer to provide full color HUD on its cars. Is a full color HUD going to influence your decision on which car to buy?
