Question Need opinion on window replacement


As maybe some of you have seen in the Open Discussion forum some @#$ shot up my driver side window with a BB gun. So I had it replaced free of charge by the insurance company.

The glass they replaced it with was made by PPG.

I did a search of PPG and some say thats as good as OEM some say insist on Seikurt or Sigla.

So what is the verdict?

I was concerned because I thought all MB parts have the little star on the part. Also the window doesn't open and close smoothly as the other windows. So I'm thinking it is either from the installation itself or from the glass used. Also doesn't the glass come with a slight tint? I didn't notice any with the one installed.

Thanks for any info,
