    I highly doubt it

    The only difference in screens that i've experienced recently is that if you have auto lights and wipers, then the screen has a different rear view mirror bracket to the non auto lights/wipers screen

    Plus, on the latest facelifted models the windscreen cuts noise by -4db.

    If you go with Autoglass, chances are the screen will be OEM. If you go with Autowindscreens they make their own but there is no difference to be honest, just the etch in the bottom corner with the maker on it.

    dont know if mine is green or grey tint but AUTOGLASS said when they give my reg number to audi they will supply the right one for my car.
