When I had the windshield replaced in my '97 many years ago, the replacement had one of those ugly blue tints on the top few inches to reduce glare. Ugly. Reminds me of an old GM.
Thanks to our Michigan roads, I got hit by another big stone, and now the windshield on my '09 is cracking, already several inches long. Thing is, I really want an exact replacement for this, not some ugly abomination like the last time. The main thing here is that the area around the rearview mirror is "screened" with black dots.
For anyone who has had theirs replaced, how did your replacement look?
I don't even know if I could order one from Honda--last time I had a dealer do a windshield, they called in a mobile repair truck from a local glass company to replace it. (Wasn't a Honda, though.) I would think Honda's glass might be too expensive anyway.
I thought of getting one from a salvage yard, but those may be in worse condition, with existing stone chips or road rash. And then finding a glass shop to install a windshield they didn't provide is going to be difficult around here.
