HUD shows the information a little skewed, how can it be adjusted?

Do not know if it appears on the photo but the light up a little to the left should not be displayed without there is some light that is visible due to the obscurity.
The speed is slightly sloping and a bit too far down.

From what I recall there are adjustment knobs in behind the center display that allow you to adjust the height of the display. But the big question: is this a new problem for a car you've had for a while, or is it a new-to-you car?

My annoyance with HUD on mine is the display disappears when I have my polarizing sunglasses on. Unless I tilt my head to the side. Odd that BMW would have missed that in design.

Correct. Remove the center display screen. Inside the opening to the left is a screw that adjusts the display.

Given the angle of the windshield that the data is projected onto there is probably nothing BMW can do to improve the polarisation issue.

I can still see mine but it is a little faint.

it is so you can see it in bright daylight, You don't get a double image and it does not show through to the outside.

I dont think it has anything to do with the angle
