    Default New Windscreen

    Hi all, just had a new screen fitted and it doesn't have the tint along the top like the old one, they told me only top spec cars have them now ( mines the LS ) is this right ?

    The sunstrip was dropped on all the Vectra C / Signum models around 05. If you'd wanted a screen with a sunstrip then you needed to have asked for a pattern screen, not the original Vx/GM one.

    If its not the same as the oe one then tell them that they have fitted the wrong one. I'd demand the same as what was removed.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    When I used to call Autoglass for replacement screens on the old work cars, I always told them the car had tints/solar reflect, whatever I could blag.

    Thumbs up

    Yeah call them straight up and tell them you had a top tint in it so you want it changed to how it was. If you kick up enough fuss you'll get it done....Did yours have a rain sensor as well if it did make sure it works after they change it.
