When it comes to replacing a cracked windshield, there are two main types of automotive glass available: OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and aftermarket glass. But what is the difference between these two types of glass? And which one is best for you?OEM windshields are the original car glass used in a new vehicle. They are manufactured to the exact specifications provided by the car manufacturer, ensuring that the windshields and side windows fit the vehicle perfectly. Dealer glass, on the other hand, is purchased directly from the car dealer authorized by the vehicle manufacturer to perform maintenance on your vehicle.
It is marketed and sold under the brand name of the windshield installer or car repair company. When it comes to quality, there are significant differences between OE windshields and aftermarket automotive glass.
