I haven't noticed it on my windshield but when I am driving today I will try to look for stars or sparkles. Mine is a bit dirty due to the weather.

Retail on those windshields touches $700 up here right now... I hope they are actually 'faulty' and not just a product of the manufacturing. Wowsers.

I only notice this on my shield but it's from travelling on the highway. Even a speck of sand at 80 miles an hour will leave a mark - albeit a very tiny, often unnoticed mark. Once you get a couple thousand though the glass starts to show it's age and looks sparkley in direct sun.

I'm waiting for the aftermarket glass companies to begin production. Once my glass shop can get them in we'll have a lineup outside their door for a month (we've got a phone list of people already started!)

I looked for it closer on mine today and with street lights, sunshine or headlights coming through the glass I didn't notice it on any window. As KiaTech says I might see it some time in the future.
