Both we and the Germans have looked in to this and its just not economically viable unfortunately. Pilkington wanted something like 6-7K for the tool and then about 700 each, from memory, so a batch of 10 was 1500 each. The Germans were talking to Saint Gobain (who made the originals) and they were in the order of 1000 each but in a batch of 20, and they needed permission from Audi to make them.

There were three original non-heated screens available in the UK last time I checked, but that was a while back so they are probably all gone by now so its pot luck now on aftermarket glass quality.
