yeah, same. i had one bad glass. made everything seem cartoon house. they replaced it again free.
i think the availability is the issue.
The secret nobody tells you is that an "original quality" windshield means that it means DOT, not an optically correct windshield.
I too have had "original quality" windshields made by a few suppliers, and they all have optical correctness issues, pit and crack quickly, and the surface hardness is never up to the original quality. I also don't trust that it's as structurally sound as OEM glass. A company that makes money replacing broken windshields has an economic incentive to keep replacing windshields, just like how apple has an incentive to keep iPhones un-repairable.
Any particular reason you are wanting an OEM windshield, besides that's what it had so that's what you want it replaced with?
More a matter of curiosity.
I have removed quite a few windshields in my time, and a decent percentage of them broke but I always got whatever glass the company had quick and cheap.
When you look at a car to buy, do you check the glass manufacturer? Do you gently peel back weatherstripping to look for rust? Do you shake the wheel to check for play? If I saw a non-oem windshield, I'd be suspicious and I'd spend more time looking at everything.
With this particular car, I'm in an interesting predicament with the windshield, since it's a JDM Import, if it doesn't all match with JDM parts and stuff the importation status could be called into question. Also, who's to say that a potential buyer wouldn't pass on one with a non-OEM windshield? I sure would consider it.
All this, and there's really no way to get a non-oem windshield that meets the DOT standards, so it's a moot point anyway. The best route is to order from Honda, have it crated, and have it shipped airmail.
