I think as well that our windshields are too thin. I think they do this to shave a few pounds.

I just had my windshield replaced. My insurance company says I now need to take it to the dealer to have car recalibrated but glass company says it is all set. Everything seems to be working fine but wanted to double check with some of you that have replaced an F90 windshield.

Make sure the part # for the OEM windshield is 51-31-7-388-745 (that's the one for HUD equipped cars). Also, make sure they use the OEM upper molding (part #51-31-7-388-713). I just replaced my windshield about a month ago and while they used OEM glass, they used some generic molding roll didn't sit flush against the edge of the roof (with resulting gaps). I had them replace the glass again using the OEM molding and all is well now.

Good luck.

So they came to my house and replaced the windshield with all bmw parts yesterday. Took 2 guys 45 mins. All items were new and they did a great job. Seems like nothing needs to be calibrated. Only thing I see is the HUD seems like it might need to be adjusted just a little bit other than that much easier than the dealer.

Btw with all bmw parts it cost my insurance company $1539 with labor compared to over $3k my bmw dealer quoted me to do the work.
