Default Heads up display

I'm still relatively new in D4 world and learning all the options.
What are the display options for HUD in 2015 D4? I get speed, navigation and night vision warning. Anything else that can be activated with VCDS? Or that is limitations of technology for 2015 HUD.
My 2016 A6 has ACC distance, lane assist and gear displayed on HUD.

The HUD on the D4 A8 is pretty limited. I asked the same question nearly two years ago when I got my 2015 A8, but didn't get much information. The HUD on my 2012 A6 could display more information than the one on my A8.

I'll try to play around with coding and report back.

My 2015 S8 night vision displays speed at all times. You get the night vision warnings as as well as the following too close/brake warnings. If Nav is engaged for a destination, you also get the upcoming turn display, initially with a distance ahead estimate, and then countdown to the turn via the declining bar graph. If you had your MMI software updated for some reason like the dealer did on mine, the icons for night vision also seemed to get a little bigger with the update.
