Anyone know if you can add the HUD to a Wind from Kia after purchase?
Possible: YES.Anyone know if you can add the HUD to a Wind from Kia after purchase?
A sunroof should be optional on the Wind edition, maybe next year?Possible: YES.
Worth it: NO.
There is so much stuff that it would take to make it functional that it wouldn't be worth it. (wiring harnesses, HDA2 modules, firmware changes)
You'll be in it for over $5,000 easily.
Easiest (and possibly cheapest) way is to trade in your Wind for a GT-Line. Even if you can get the parts (see previous replies), you'll need to replace part or all of the top part of the dash, and that may require removing the windshield.Anyone know if you can add the HUD to a Wind from Kia after purchase?
That’d be nice. I hate having to max out trim lines to get a sunroof.A sunroof should be optional on the Wind edition, maybe next year?
Today, I learned…Heads up: (pun intended) if you search the app store for "HUD", apparently nowadays that means "Hookup Dating".
You may get more joy on the Kia Nero forums and not the EV6 forum?I am interested in this as well. Just bought a NIRO Plug in Hybrid, that strangely has the Remote Park Assistant but not the HUD, even though it comes together as part of the Technology Option here in Germany. I am wondering if it’s possible to have KIA add the HUD. I will ask them tomorrow and post an update here.
I went with the Wind+Tech precisely because the GT-Line has a sunroof standard.Another of several (many) reasons I went with GT-Line instead of Wind w/Tech.
I suppose it has something to do with where you you live and it’s a very personal decision.I went with the Wind+Tech precisely because the GT-Line has a sunroof standard.
Do people really like sunroofs? Or is that one of those features that car makers add to sex-up their cars and increase prices but that few really like and use?
I've had a few sunroofs over the years but not because I wanted it -- and I've never used it.
Of course I respect that. It really was just a question, not an implication. Most of my friends don't use their sunroofs either (yes, I asked) but, like me, it often came standard on the cars we bought over the years.I suppose it has something to do with where you you live and it’s a very personal decision.
I have had sun/moon roofs on 2 out of the last 3 vehicles. I missed it on my Volt, not offered. And I have a convertible that is always driven top-down, rain, shine, or snow.
Ok, really bad rain and snow, not so much, but I’ll usually know that ahead of time and not take it out. Otherwise it’s under any covered area I can find until it passes.
Even here in Vegas, I open the roof, especially now that we are under 100°. Of course, the glass stays closed until it cools off more. I also put Llumar Air Shield 80 on it when I did the windshield. I’ve had it open the last 3-4 times I’ve driven.
And it’s not a “sex-up” thing. I grew up in the 50s-70s in sunny SoCal and lived there after I got out of the USAF. The weather was different then, and as I remember, smog wasn’t that bad until I came “home” in the 80s. Could have been, but I remember seeing the San Gabriel Mountains everyday. Even from all the way down at the beach.
I guess I could also tie it to riding a motorcycle for over 30 years, the first 10+ without a helmet or laws dictating them. Then I got smart, or better, had a family. But I still loved being in the wind. Same with the TR6 and all the sun/moon roofs.
All that to say, I respect your opinion, and only ask you respect those of us that like the ability to open the roofs of our cars.
Oh boy do I agree! For the most part. LOLBut on a car, it's just something that eats up headroom and prone to leaking.
