Anyway, this clearplex stuff is thurmely heated to the outside of your windshield. Not allot of places offer it but if you can find it then I definitely think it is worth the investment. Cost me around 100 for it.
wow this is great - wish I'd seen this before when my M3 was brand new... does this product turn hazy with age? I think I'll get this done when I finally do get my windshield replaced.

No yellowing or haziness that I have heard of. Although I do see a slight orange peel effect at certain angles. Still, very worth it IMO! This thing has already saved me from replacing my window from a few huge rocks thrown from a semi.

You were just lucky with the honda products. Like the sheetmetal on their products, they have some of the softest windshields of any manufacturer.

Agree with everyone here.

Any recommendations on windshield replacements with rain sensors?

thanks for this fantastic recommendation - I'm planning to get my windshield replaced and then get clearplex installed - I found a good local installer...

No. It's the same glass they make all other windshields out of.
