I beg to differ. I read some posts about a year ago about OEM and aftermarket windshields. Many guys were complaining about the quality of the OEM widnshield it terms of it being prone to minute stone chips. If I recall correctly, when driving toward the sun, many people said that the OEM looks like sandblasted and the aftermarket windshield hed up much better. Again, this is what I remeber from way back, not sure where the post and who posted that.
I for one agree, in a year of "normal" driving, my windshield does look like it was sandblasted.
