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,

dont settle for immitation Benz products. most glass places will get the OME replacement parts if you insist on it.

I was also offered the cheaper replacement and turned it down.

if it doesnt work right inform your insurance company to go after the window installer..they will have to fix it or the insurance company wont pay them.
take it back and get the real parts.

make sure they really know how to replace mercedes parts the company I used didnt and tried to do a cheap job. Called the insurance company and they made them do it right with in 48 hours.
