Did yours have all those sensors in it too?

Edit:
Lol I just got what you said. I remember the Genesis dealer telling me they need to call in a 3rd party...
You are not the first. Take a look at this thread.

With some cars, a certain spec option windshield has to be used if the car has a HUD. I want to say it has to do with how the HUD reflects the images to the driver. Is that the case with Genesis as well?

I just had my windshield replaced and the cost is totally outrageous. This made my $2000 Cilajet paint protection package pay for itself once already as it comes with 2 full windshield replacements in a ten year span.
Was the Cilajet paint protection package an add-on that you purchased when you bought your G70? I'm looking to buy one soon and I may opt for this if it's available after reading this thread. And ouch on that repair cost!

Yeah the dealer I purchased through offers Cilajet packages. The car I bought was used as a dealer demo model near the Edmonton airport, and it had a pretty nasty windshield crack towards the bottom. I have to imagine once Cilajet sees how much the windshields are costing on the G70 they might want to reconsider the two windshield replacement in 10 years for this car.

Seems like a reasonable price, no? I remember when I had to replace the windshield on my Lexus, the dealerships would charge ~$1500, though I got a 3rd party to do it for about $1100. I only paid the deductible, of course, but the insurance company did approve an OEM windshield because it had a HUD.

BTW, conventional wisdom says always get an OEM windshield if you can. With aftermarket ones sometimes the optics are not great. Oftentimes HUD wouldn't display correctly, and it can even make you dizzy while driving.

This gets filed under comprehensive coverage under your car insurance., you get charged whatever your deductible is. Change it to $100 or the lowest you can go before reporting it. Just had my windshield replaced in my 2010 this weekend. Retail was $331 plus install it would have been $550. I only paid $100. Have State Farm Insurance.

Go to a windshield replacement repair shop that specializes in windshields. Don't have it done at the dealer.

Problem is that, so far, only the dealer can calibrate the sensors with the windshield replacement.
