Unlike the tempered side glass that shatters into a million pieces, the windshield is laminated glass. Has two pieces of glass with a plastic layer in between so if something breaks it won't end up in your lap like tempered glass would. A HUD windshield has a special light-redirecting optical film in the sandwich of glass.

HUD distorted


Just had a Safelite windshield replacement. The HUD is compressed 25% less in the horizontal such that when radio info comes up it can not be read. There are 4 NAGS part numbers for the 2011 Camaro that range from $980.20 to $689.15. They were supposed to use NAGS part number DW01901GTYN, list is $941.40 will find out later this week what they used as I told the insurance company to hold payment.

Safelite Replacement

In order to pass safety inspection, I recently had to replace mine and I used Safelite. I did notice a slight difference in the HUD but I'm already used to it. It did look a little stretched at first but certainly not distorted. And, yes, they did use HUD glass. See attached pics.
