Angry BMW windshield replaced but inferior!

My dealer replaced my fogging original shield Saturday with a new replacement shield that is of inferior quality. I didn't notice it till I left the dealership heading to the Blueridge Parkway and noticed that it is distorted. When you lower the shield from the top down about 2 inches it looks like you are looking thru a magnifying glass. Also when you look thru the sides it looks distorted. Has anyone else experienced this with a replacement shield from BMW. Are they using an aftermarket company? My original shield may have fogged but it was crystal clear from all angles with no distortion. I find this new shield terribly distracting while driving! Ron

The majority of the OEM shields stick, IMO. The clarity stinks. And the airflow is very dirty. Get it replaced again, then order a real shield with clean air from Cee Bailey's or the like.
