HUD (heads up display) tilt issues

My LC 500, just bought last week, has a HUD which I have found to be tilted clockwise from horizontal a few degrees (maybe 3-5?). When I first got it the clockwise tilt was more noticeable, at probably about 10 degrees. I just found out, to my delight, that there is a HUD rotation setting in Vehicle Settings and was able to rotate it counterclockwise to the 3-5 degree tilt I just mentioned. Unfortunately, I can't get it to rotate counterclockwise any further than that, although it will rotate clockwise a bunch. I did try adjusting it up and down vertically but that doesn't change the limits of counterclockwise rotation - it just won't go far enough that way. It's like looking at a picture that is slightly tilted, and a bit distracting. Suppose I will get used to it.

Has anyone else found this issue? Are there any other adjustments that the dealer can do without taking apart the dash? Some kind of easy set screw adjustment or something?

Thanks.

I wouldn't worry too much about this, its a new car after all and they have to fix it, even if it means taking things apart. Just take this as a signal that if more problems keep up, maybe being a short-term owner is what you should consider.

Not sure if that's the limit of the projector or if this can be fixed with a system's update. Have you discussed this with the dealership?

It might have been something that was off since it left the dealer which makes you wonder if a tech would have been able to pick up on this during a PDI, thoughts @marksinfrared ?

Its very close to horizontal now as best as I can tell so I probably wont make an issue of it.

I've seen a setting somewhere (but not with the vertical/dim settings). Somehere in the vehicule display params on the central system. Look around you'll find it
