Windscreen replacement – any subsequent problems

Quick question for anyone who has had their windscreen replaced.
I’m having mind replaced next week due to damage, the car has previously had the rusty roof fixed and the modified rubber fitted.
Has anyone who has had a windscreen replace had any problems?
I’ve ordered a seal via Honda, but not sure what the replacement will be like or if the company will use that one, of if they reuse the original!

It all depends on how particular you are, and how good the fitter is. Safe to say it won't ever be the same as when it was fitted in the factory.

Autoglass come with a new screen and the new fixings required.

The top rubber strip is part of what they fit new from the kit they bring.

I bet the autoglass seal is better than the oem 1. Changed mine last week for the revised item... not impressed with the design at all.
