Fellow Houstonian here.
Scotty please help me, I need to replace my windshield. Do I buy OEM... are aftermarket windshield worth there weight?
Call SafeLITE 877-664-8931 for a quote on your OEM windshield. And a quote for OEE. That'll get you started. OEM is same manufacturer as your original. OEE is same standards but different manufacturer. Then get your Dealer to quote you. Compare prices. Also see if your auto insurance co. can recommend a reputable windshield installer.
Thanks. So would the dealership be the best place to go?
oem are better
My research into OEM v. aftermarket-- I'd opt for OEM on my Toyota, for safety concerns. A windshield isn't the place to cut corners on quality, unless you can find an aftermarket one that's certified & built to equal or better specs. There's usually a reason aftermkt windshields are way cheaper than original equipment.
