the oem rear window is the best option, there are plenty of threads (old) on here, you do have to search though to find them, they always end in - buy the oem, but then if your going to spend £150 on a rear screen just pay another £100 and get a new roof too (fitted) the only downside here is the wi...

Re: Rear screen - are these any good ???

the rubber outer trim looks alot thicker than oem, most cheap replacement windows have plastic trim which will crease when the roof is lowered leading to it leaking, this one however looks like it has solved that issue.
