I'm curious if anyone knows (or can check on their car) the maker of the
original windshield glass for 5000s. I recently had mine replaced ('86 5KTQ
which had the original, yes, 13 year old, windshield unti last week). I got
the "premium" glass, it has Sigla and Pilkington stampings, made in Austria.
Pricey glass, installed cost with a new molding from the dealer ($115) was
about $700, and the shop cut me deal on the premium glass because insurance
was reluctant to pay that much. I can highly reccomend the shop, Jeff's
Quality Auto Glass (Euro Glass) in Woodinville, WA. In the book of records
that came with my brother's 91 200Q there were two windshield replacements
from this shop. No worries about gouging/scratching the pinch weld and then
having rust appear in a year or so. After 13 yrs. the old glass was heavily
sandblasted with two dings that recently turned into cracks, it's nice being
able to see once again.
