Hi,

I have a RAV4, 2007, V6. Just had the windshield replaced. I was told it would be green tint glass with a blue shade band. But what he put in does not have the shade band. Questions:

1. Does the OEM have a shade band?
2. Does the shade band make a big difference? Is it helpful?
3. Do windshields with shade bands cost more? Or cost less?

The company told me that the ones with the shade band are hard to find, but they would look for one and replace it for me if I wish. Just wondering if it is worth going to the trouble?

Thanks!

No shaded band on my '11 RAV4 Base with Value Upgrade Package, either. Haven't been in any 3rd gen. RAV4 which has had that band OEM.

No shaded band on my 2008, and it still has the OEM windshield!
