Interesting you mention that. I got the windshield on my 85 4000Q 
replaced 2 years still had the original.   The original was 
starting to get a little pitted from sand and difficult to see through 
at sunset/sunrise.  When I got the 'no name' replacement (I want to say 
Sekurit) it looked great for about 6 months.  Then it became far more 
pitted than the original did after 17 years!  It seemed like the new one 
was softer or something.  No other variables were changed either 
(commute, climate etc). 

my 2 cents.
