How Can I Tell Which Windscreen I Have? Need Replacement!

My windscreen has a large crack in it. I have cover for this on my insurance. Just looking for a bit of advice before I book it in to get fixed.

I've heard there are a few different types of windscreen available on the E46 M3 coupe. Some are "Climate Comfort", some have a "Green Shade Band" at the top (which mine does), and some are just plain.

As I didn't buy my car new, I don't know which one it was ordered with. I want to make sure that they replace like for like, or a better option.

Also, I recall some people demanding OEM BMW screens, rather than the generic screens that fitters normally supply. Should I do this? Are there big differences in quality?

Thanks for any advice anyone can offer.
