I'm considering reserving the next pioneer 4 that comes in to my dealer and am wanting a 2 piece tilt out poly windshield. I'm wondering if it is worth the extra $100 to get the hard coat over the standard windshield?

Mine wouldn't either. I got a hardtop , rearview mirrors, and I think $200 off

Yeah man, I would at least give it a shot. I have the less expensive one and I cant see a thing a lot of the time because the glare from the sun reflects off of all of the tiny scratches in the windshield. I am now saving up for the glass one.

I had the standard windshields before and they can be scratched just by washing them.

Get the hard coat!

DB, I'd say 15 minutes the first time you install everything. After that, just a couple to take on and off.

Thanks. I'm gonna order it this week.

My local dealer's a catbird. Does anyone know of a dealer who's offering 20% off on accessories? You can PM me if you want to. I'd appreciate it.

I don't get it, sometimes. Let's say he (dealer) only makes 10% if he offers me 20% off (stretch...as I think he makes more). Would you rather make 10% of something.....or 0% of something? All he has to do is hand me the windshield or place an order. I'll pay 100% up-front.

Yes it would be best, i have 2 piece optical windscreen and i like it. you have to pay particular attention when cleaning as noit to scratch it. My lack of experience led me to this purchase and as said i do like it but the hard glass would be better.

I just installed my hard coat split windshield.

For a mere mortal, this installation would take about 30min. It took this sub-mortal close to an hour. That included driving to my in-laws to get my drill bits back!

If you're even thinking about a windshield.......do yourself a favor and just get this one. I can't begin to tell you how precise the fit is...and how good it looks. I was going to make my own (windshield). I'm SO glad I didn't. This is the one spot on the Pioneer I wouldn't skimp.

May we have a picture of it installed please Mr. Cooper!

DB I can't tell any difference between hard coat and poly just by looking at images. Is the hard coat a glass or similar to lexan

The hard coat will be like a lexan but way more scratch resistant , kind of like Mar-Guard if you are familiar with that. Should be much the same as the windshields they put on logging equipment like feller-butchers etc.
