windshield recommendations?

Had picked up a 96 A6 Avant with the intent to resell and of course it
needed a windshield. Was told by the local glass shop (Truimph) that the
biggest importer of windshields is now china! Had one installed for about
$220 through a friends shop.

Shortly thereafter had a stone chip in my totally sandblasted windshield on
the 91 200 20v. It finally spread past the point of insurance being able to
repair it! (Took forever for it to spread, didn't want to end up with a
repaired crappy windshield!) Also a Chinese model!

Probably not as good as OEM type glass, but fairly inexpensive and seems to
be alright (second one was under comp ins)

Not really giving you any input, other than the glass seems okay! Wouldn't
expect it to last another 200k though.
