Yes sir the windshield...haha that is great info on the AMG ML; I am sure the vehicle is great but for the value, you cannot beat the SRT!! Parents have a 13 Cayenne Turbo, and while I see where the extra money is spent...give me the cash difference in the back of the SRT all day long!! Same with Rover's too...you get so much goodness in a great package with the SRT that I cannot justify the extra money spent (at least in my current mindframe haha
I was showing off my SRT to someone I work with, who had been testing high end import SUV's for the last 6 months. She said "What kind of Jeep IS this??" and a week later placed her order. She still says she can't believe she bought a Jeep, but it was the closest driving experience to her BMW 6 series that was being replaced.
Anyway, back on topic. I seem to have glass replaced on my vehicles once every few years. I always insist on OEM glass, not a knockoff. I have seen visible defects in aftermarket glass. I'm told aftermarket glass, while just as safe, is sometimes thicker and heavier than OEM glass. I don't know if other insurance policies work like this, but I've never been denied the OEM glass, and if I was, I'd pay the difference out of pocket.
If I have a repairable chip, I get the windshield replaced anyway since they can't force you to accept a repair. It's never more than 6 months before I get a ton of pockmarks that are especially visible when driving towards the sun so why not just get a nice clear fresh one. Ah, the wonders of full glass coverage with no deductible.
