Thanks Bernie,

i've been looking around - does anybody know where to get the stainless trim kit? or at least the clips if it's possible to reuse the existing trim?

i'm wondering if i can reuse the existing trim on the aftermarket windsheld. you'd think if the window is meant to fit on the car, the trim should fit on the windhshield, eh?

I believe that the chrome trim is a sperate Audi part number, doesn’t come with any glass.

US autoglass depot in hayward. nice people, but first they quoted $169 for sigla glass. which, i figured was way too good to be true. it ends up being some off-brand, like GGN or something for $239. they carry pilkington, but were adamant that they don't make glass for the 200. which is odd, because they do for my wife's A4.
