Waiting on autowindscreens to come back to me with where we go from here now. Supposedly the fitter told me all the trim is the same and it's a problem with the part so won't get it perfect but I've had this exact problem before which they resolved on my last S2000.



Same situation s me then ghost!
They damaged rear view mirror and scratched down to metal around the windscreen... I have sent them a quote from my bodyshop so waiting for them to come back... longer they wait the more damage its causing due to rust .

Car is finally back from the bodyshop, new OEM screen and OEm rubber this time... suprise surprise it fits perfectly and the rear view mirror fits spot on too.

Only took best part of 2 months to sort out...

Next person to chip my windscreen will be getting some serious agro from me!

John would you mind sharing photos of your seal fit at all please?

Still arguing with auto windscreens so be good to show them that despite what they say a factory fit is achievable (They've literally told me it won't be as good as factory before having another go at the job)

Glad you got yours sorted though
