    Well, mine doesn't have a tint at the top (99), so unless other years have this feature, I would say it's not original.

    Check the etched area on the windshield. The year of manufacture will be etched there.

    Strength isn't really a concern. The only risk is that sometimes aftermarket glass can have a "wave" in it, causing some distortion. Not all of it does, and even the occasional factory piece has it too. It's more of an annoyance than anything else.

    From my look at a parts manual, it looks like they have different part numbers; but, I do not know personally if they can be interchanged or not.

    For your information, you can find parts manuals at this site: Viper parts manuals

    . Wouldn't you have to ship it either way? Do they make them in Italy?

    Intracontinental shipping will always be cheaper than sending one across the pond. A windshield size box from here to Italy starts at around $500.

    Not necessarily, people wreck vipers in Europe too, and there is
    always the one-in-a-trillion shot of there being a NOS sitting on
    some dealer/body shop shelf somewhere. But if price is a concern,
    then yeah I think he's stuck with aftermarket.

    I have an aftermarket windshield in mine the problem is it has some serious distortions at the curves. I would if you can look through the windshield before you buy it and compare it to the original.

    I believe you can. It was backordered and took forever to get, but my glass guy has it, and it's going in on Monday. I'm pretty sure he got it from the dealership.
