    Hi all,

    What tint should the A3 quattro Sport windscreen be?

    I've just had a new windscreen done, under insurance (Elephant, put me through RAC). I'm SURE it's the wrong tint.

    The dark band at the top isn't anywhere near as pronounced or as broad, but most worringly, I think the basic glass isn't tinted as it should be. It's totally different from the side windows.

    The tint code on the glass (a sort of line with a down arrow coming from it) is:

    A S1

    Is this right? It's at the top left of the glass. Could another facelift quattro Sport driver have a look for me?

    Thanks!

    I thought the A3 had green tints where as the S3 had blue tints? Not sure though.

    I think the colour looks right Mark, just the tint (from inside) looks wrong.

    Also, it's not sealed as neatly at the top - the old one was sort of "rubberless" at the seal. Anyone know what I mean?! Or fancy posting a pic?

    And there's condensation underneath the VIN plate window hole too...

    Any more ideas?

    S3's should have a grey tint along the top, they only had an A3 item when my windscreen cracked, so I have a A3 green tinted windscreen on mine.
