Per Real OEM
Oh it's not OEM glass. I just referenced the OEM style green brow.
OEM glass is hard to source for this car and when you can, its expensive. Too expensive for insurance to cover. I am replacing the glass with OEM moldings.
In Arizona there is no penalty for number of windshield claims. Paying for OEM glass just to take a rock to the windshield a couple months later would be tough.
I replaced a windshield 3x last year for my commuter car. Arizona freeways can be brutal.

Yes I listed, the OEM part #’s for reference and cross-reference purposes.

The climate comfort glass is (or was) available as a non Genuine part from
Safelite and other manufacturers and installers. You have to ask for it and check it before it’s installed..

Fuyao lists “Sunless” as their climate comfort.

In my experience, it’s good glass. BMW has started using it OE as well.

How much is expensive? Here in Europe you can get OEM clima comfort for about 450€.

Our friends have a mom and pop glass shop and when they did my glass, there was no aftermarket available to them. I got an OE piece of glass. Was over $1100 their cost.

I would say yes, there is a notable difference in heat and glare...

Although out here in Phoenix it has been at least 110F so nothing really helps but there is a difference, yes

Posted pics below of the installed glass
