They are going to have to replace it again anyway because of the distortion I saw, not to mention like I said earlier it didn't look like it fit right......the top seemed to be up too high, and wouldn't allow the moulding to fit flat enough.......same with the rear window.
I totally understand that you want the correct windshield. I just went and looked at my 2001 Z06 (HUD was not offered that year) .... this is the original windshield from tthe factory ....
it has 43R-008008
Below that it says SHADED 4.8 MM <----- NOTICE it does not say HUD
Below that it is all the same until the last line where mine is in a different order ....
And below that I have 4 dots in a different layout than The Wanderer ...
Certainly looks like 43R-008008 is what you want ... with HUD ... the M334 or M534 is referred to as the Model Number in the DOT list I found ... could be that the M334 is non-HUD and M534 is the HUD windshield.
EDIT .... MORE INFO
.....The 43R-008008 may not be that important ... after doing some research, that circle with the E6 in it indicates that this windshield has been certified in (E6 = Belgium) a European country to meet the European standard 43R ... followed by a number that shows some kind of registration number. So all of the newer windshields may be arriving with a new certification number ... it does not appear to indicate any kind of construction information about the windshield.
I'd call Gene at http://www.gmpartshouse.com
and ask him if he can read the markings from the windshield (GM part number 10315114) as everywhere I've looked that appears to be the only windshield available for the C5 ... all previous part numbers have "superceded" to this one.
