That is almost exactly where mine hit, near the pillar in the black about halfway up, but on the passenger's side. I thought the black would help cracks from spreading. Is glass weaker at the edges? I had a bird slam into the windshield and no damage and with all of the Ike cleanup, lots of other stuff, but that is my first chip and boy howdy did it spread!i_like_f150s said:A little bit about the damage: The rock (or whatever it was) hit about midway on the drivers side in the black area next to the "A pillar". The cracks (there are two) run towards the center. They are about 10" long.
To my knowledge, US auto makers use glass made by either PPG or Safelite. The GM logo on your glass seems to me a 'feel good' addition and replacement with Safelite- or PPG-labeled glass would get you the identical item.xcskier said:I was happy to get it for "only" $100. It was an official GM part, and not aftermarket, based on the GM logo printed onto the corner of the glass.
