    Mine never left the showroom floor before I bought it - it had 7 miles on the clock! It had the blue tint across the top 3-4" of the windshield and the dot matrix around the rearview mirror.

    I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.

    Doesn't look like the color of the coolant means anything in this discussion, and that's good. Too much to juggle as it is...

    That's fine, I believe the dotmatrix on the 04's is all the way across. Not just around the rear view mirror.

    Keep accepting input and editing your original post.

    When the information is complete, accurate, and agreed upon by the masses that really know, it will be a valuable tool to to direct newbies toward.

    It would make a great sticky.

    You don't have a dot-matrix windshield

    OK.....you have the old style because you have the blue tint!
    When we say Dot-matrix, we mean there is NO blue tint...only dot-matrix
    across the whole top and rear view mirror. So you have the old style
    original windshield with the graduated blue tint 3-4" deep.
    The dot-matrix windshield only has 1-2 inch border of dots.......(matrix dots)
    going across the top with NO tint.

    Get Royal to check your OASIS report.

    It could be that your windshield has been replaced. My '04 (Dec '03 build) came into the dealership with a broken windshield, and was replaced with the dot matrix style. Then, when it was replaced the second time, this summer, I tried to get the blue tint, and was told they were not available, and had to accept the dot matrix.
