“If you have a luxury car or your car is new, an OEM replacement windshield may be the way to go. Newer car models feature advanced technology such as lane keeping assist system, forward collision warning, blind spot detection, and ocular clarity, among others.
Many car manufacturers recommend using OEM windshields, as these are compatible with the new technologies. However, be prepared for possible out-of-pocket expenses, as insurance companies prefer to pay for less expensive aftermarket parts.
Consider an aftermarket windshield if yours is an older vehicle with few technological features. A highquality aftermarket windshield from a reputable auto glass shop may be a suitable option if you are seeking value for money.
Before purchasing a replacement windshield, speak with a trustworthy auto glass professional who can advise you on the available options. You should also find out from your insurance provider about windshield replacement coverage.”
