Almost all of the windshields sold in Canada come from the same factory in Mexico, doesn't matter if you buy the OEM shield or the after market shield. They are one and the same windshield. They also all conform to the same Canadian safety standards regardless of OEM or aftermarket.tnetisg wrote: ↑Dec 2nd, 2017 2:20 pmWhich is exactly why people shouldn't consider cheap windshield replacements like this that could use inferior glass and adhesive that may not seal properly compromising the structure of the car and let water get in and lead to rust.
It's best to deal with stone chips right away that may lead to cracks instead of ever having to replace the glass.
I read an article that went in depth about the dangers of cheap windshield replacement, can't seem to find it at the moment though.
It is an urban legend that there is a quality difference between the more expensive OEM shields and an aftermarket shield, perpetrated by the car manufactures who, of course, want you to buy their OEM windshields, because they make a big profit on those (same as buying a $100 Monster 4K HDMI cable versus a cheap 4K HDMI cable).
