WRONG!!!! these cheap asse order there windshields from china which i didnt know originally so they replace i get the car inspected before i actually drive and the HUD looks horible its dull and looks like it has two images so i complain and they come put a knew one in and same thing plus they break it putting it in so 1 more time this is when they decide to let us in on the china thing so i bitch and they order ppg and come back for the third time this time looks great hud works perfect im good o go right no the idiot breaks my rearview so ow i have to order one of those at their expense ofcourse $225 bucks now im just waiting for it to come in

don't you carry comprehensive on your car? I carry a zero deductible so anything like windshields is free to me. Even if you had a 100 or 250 deductible it would help a lot. My son just had his windshield replaced and it would have cost $1300 but he just had to pay $100 for it.

The HUD situation is what I've been telling people all along. You don't want to use a non-HUD windshield. This is a first-hand experience from a member to prove the point.

We have had members state without a doubt that a regular windshield will do...

There you have it folks....HUD is a unique feature and needs unique parts to make it work properly :o
