I just had my windshield replaced and I reluctantly accepted an
aftermarket glass. Its not Sigla or Sekurit, but made by Pilkington of
I just noticed that the black opaque banding around the front leading
edge (by the VIN) is not very wide and it does not hide the interface
where the vinyl dash butts up to the body. Basically, I can see the red
paint of the body when I look through the glass while standing outside
Its not a big deal, but it bugs me.
I do not have the original windshield now to compare and the glass
company is saying that they are "all like that". Can anyone with an
original OEM glass measure the width of the black banding at the leading
Mine is 1/4 inch of solid black, then 1-1/2 inches of black dots
measured from the rubber strip on the wiper trim plate.
