I recently had the windshield replaced on my car and Allstate had no problem with an OEM windshield. Well the windshield does have the star on it BUT it is made by PPG not Sigla! Allstate also aproved having my seals replaced so essentially the results is the same as bringing it to the dealer.
Next time around I will insist on the German MB glass on the US Made for the sake of originality.
By the way, I've never heard of the value of a car going down because you replaced your windshield. As long as it's replaced with original glass not even a collector will complain IMO.
