I have at least 5 small chips already on the front windshield. Having driven for many years in all kinds of conditions, and far worse, with small rocks etc, this glass seems to chip so much easier than anything I have had in the past. It is very frustrating. Even my FJ Cruiser with it upright and known to crack easily, does better! And I have only 2400 miles on the car, while avoiding being behind trucks etc. Seems like most anything will easily chip the glass. Must be very soft.

I’ve noticed the same! I tracked my FRS multiple times and don’t have as many rock chips on the windshield as my a90 and ive only had it for 4 months... I’ve also noticed the headlight housing chips a lot faster as well.

Here, here! Same experience. Friends in the auto glass business said it is probably the lowest grade windshield along with the other glass panels. It also seems to be a bitch to get then properly clean.

Clean? It is a nightmare to clean. I have bought special fluids, guaranteed not the streak and have special clothes. Horrible to get really clean. What is the deal with this?

I’m glad it’s not just me that has noticed this. I clean the Supra and my GTI windshields the same. The GTI always looks great while the Supra looks like garbage. It’s so strange.

Funny enough, the outside glass is pretty easy to clean for me. I use a damp and dry towel with meguiar's glass cleaner.

I only have trouble with the inside portion of the windshield...always streaks on the inside no matter which product I use.

I have the same cleaner, by chance. I have found the best thing is distilled water and pure alcohol, and if I get frustrated, I just drink it. lol I use Everclear 151, can't get the 190 locally. Also use the 151 and aloe vera as our hand sanitizer (works better than the commercially available in killing bacteria/viruses).

The deal is low grade glass...even after Rainx treatment, which I do on all my auto/RV/boat glass, the windows look slightly etched, since new. Ran into this once before w/ a windshield economy replacement on my Dodge deisel. Oh well...love everything else about the car.

Yes, it is like my windshield, when just right in the sun, has been blasted with super fine sand (etched)! The rest of the car is great. I hope that an after market windshield comes out that is decent quality. And I don't use the HUD so that part of glass capability, I don't care about, just good glass!

I did get this the other day and it works better than anything else I have (I have all types of polishing cloths etc for the car, that are only for it. :^). I washed the material and it worked even better and is a necessity for in inside of the windshield as I can reach it easily now but I still have to polish and polish over and over to get it acceptable.

Something like this should come stock with the car as the inside of the windshield, even if it was good glass, is horrible, at least for me, to get to but this makes it very easy.

Thanks for the tip.
