Go with OEM. I had two Safelite windshields and they were both flawed.

I need one also. Never drive behind someone hauling sand in an open bed truck on the freeway. Now my windshield and fenders have a bunch of sand nicks in it. My bro got an oem windshield for $150 for his civic i'm going there for a quote when i get the money.

Re: Aftermarket Windsheild glass

I just paid 199 out the door with a new gasket, what ever the hell that is, top part all the way down?..

I've noticed its somewhat like a funhouse mirror in some sections.. fawk..

I'm going to call them now, I'm not digging it....

Re: Aftermarket Windsheild glass

your windsheild will state what kind it it on the drivers side bottom outside corner..

Mine is a Crinamex..

I just got off the phone and told them that the glass has somewhat of a fun house mirror effect.. They told me it'll take a week for the crap to dry or else it'll be a big mess to remove..

I told em I feel nautious looking out of it.. maybe a little overdramatic, but I wan't the brand name industry standard shiet..
