As for Safelite stand over the installer with a magnifying glass. Although they're getting better quality installers, many still take shortcuts. watch and be sure they primer any scratches from cutting out the old glass and adhesives.
That's interesting, the person I spoke with at Safelite indicated only one windshield was available and that's the OEM one. I talked to them before I called my insurance company.
There is some comment that the factory windshield is not very durable and even some comment that it can be scratched with plastic scrapers as you would use to scrape ice/snow in the winter -- does that make sense to you?
