maybe you should try looking at the classified newspaper in your area. I always see ads in it that saids 50-80% off windshields for all makes and models. I am not sure if the built quality is the same you get from the dealer. As long as it doesn't explode during high speed driving; then you have nuthing to worry about. :p

yeah, im sure i can get a cheaper one but that's why i want to know what the black strip on top is for. if it's not needed for anything, im sure there are cheaper windshields out there.

If you have an auto-dimming mirror, get an OEM windshield with the black strip. It costs more but trust me, it looks like shit when you see can see the inside of the rear-view mirror.
