I just had my windshield replaced last week ('88 90Q). The guy was able
to reuse the molding, but quoted me $50 beforehand if he couldn't.

Try another glass shop.

Incidentally, is there much of a quality difference between an authentic
Audi windshield ($450 wholesale) and an aftermarket windshield ($350 retail,
installed)??? The only distinction I can see is a larger in-shield antenna,
which seems to pull in stations better...
