    Is this Melbourne Red?

    I just had an F30 loaner when the X3 was in for service, and it was quite nice. The steering took some getting used to, but it's very responsive.

    So odd to see an F30 without the xDrive badges plastered all over it. It's pretty much impossible to find a RWD F30 up in the northeast.

    Yes. It's an impressive color when the sun shines on it. I never found it nearly as good in pics as it is in person. In person, it's definitely a wow color.
    There are metallic flakes in it that pop when the sun's rays hit it.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Dope color, yo. So much red throughout.

    Is that a little pull out screen for the triangle glass in the back too?

    Eh, I'm still not sold on any aftermarket HUDs. They often under emphasize the information I want like RPMs and speed, and over emphasize other, less useful information like email, Spotify, other stuff I shouldn't be checking while driving. Every review I've read has stated that car information like speed and RPMs lag behind real time at a noticeable rate. My guess is both the hardware isn't that great and there's inherent lag with having to output information from the ECU via Bluetooth to your phone and to the HUD unit. I have a feeling that you can't really beat an integrated unit for minimizing latency. I also don't like having some electronic device sit on the dash, giving someone a reason to break in. Alternatively, you could remove it each and every time you get out of the car but I'm far too lazy for that nonsense.

    I understand that I must live in the automotive middle ages.

    Yes, the small glass has a screen too. Check this pic:

    Thank you guys ! I will report back after my Indy's PPI (post purchase inspection). For sure the brakes need to be replaced on the 4 corners. BTW, this is the HUD unit on the dash.
