When it comes to replacing the glass in your vehicle, you may be wondering if all auto glass is the same. The answer is no, there are some differences between aftermarket and OEM auto glass. OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer and is the same manufacturer that provided the original glass that the automaker placed in your vehicle. This means that you should get a windshield almost identical to the factory glass that came with your vehicle when it came off the assembly line.
The differences between aftermarket and OEM auto glass usually lie in the thickness of the glass or the color. Aftermarket windshields need to be adjusted correctly, otherwise it wouldn't be safe to install them, so the size dimensions always stay the same. OEM glass also has a special brand of car manufacturer, which is important for preserving the originality of an older vehicle such as a collector's car. Automotive glass is an important structural component of your vehicle, so a quality installation is important for your safety.
Some brands of glass may be different, but this doesn't really make any difference. At Cornerstone Auto Glass, we provide fast and convenient car glass replacement and windshield repair for all domestic and foreign vehicles. We sell directly to the general public and auto glass professionals in the Washington DC metropolitan area.

We use only OEM parts to ensure that you get a windshield almost identical to the factory glass that came with your vehicle when it came off the assembly line. Automakers restrict the manufacture of OEM windshields and sell them in their parts department to consumers and auto glass repair and replacement shops. Using anything other than OE glass could lessen the effects of acoustic glass and increase cabin noise. Nissan says that OEM glass must be used to replace windshield glass because of the complex technology now available in vehicles, especially in the windshield.
