I agree that OEM should be of no concern. It's easy to find glass places that will give you OEM glass. As a selling point, many of the places make it a point of telling you that's all they use.

I'm gun shy about replacements, though... I had an Explorer's windshield replaced by one of the largest and most reputable glass shops in the area but I found out too late they did bad job. Started to rust out along the top due to water under the weather stripping not being able to drain and it eventually started leaking into the interior of the car. (You couldn't see the rust problem unless you removed the weather stripping and, boy, what a nasty mess.) It was the primary reason I sold the vehicle. It's easy to replace a windshield, but it's also easy to make the smallest of mistakes when doing so, and then physics gets involved, and ouch.
