That's the one I (and some others here) also intend to go for. Just not too sold on the greenish tint.
If you have any pictures that might be helpful please share.

I'll try to load a picture.
To be honest l have not noticed any tint at all.
Check the size before you order one.

I have nothing left to check against. Anyone happen to know if you can measure the required windscreen height from the 2 bottom tabs that hold the window in position?

You can, yes.
One screen is 735mm the other 760mm
The heated type is 735mm
In reality they should both fit, it is the scuttle panel that is different.
I believe the U.K spec. (and maybe some others) have a deeper scuttle.
The scuttle panel on my U.K car is 100mm deep.

I thought I saw in a recent juicebox video that the Japanese ones have the bigger screen. There was an irish guy who had loads of them and he said something like that.

Yes that's correct.
That's also why R.ave had issue with his window moulding as it was meant for the Japanese market. The scuttle panel is indeed different on the export models. It might also explain why the European and USDM cars have rust issues right below the windscreen as it isn't protected by a windscreen anymore and water can creep in. Then the rust destroys your windscreen from underneath! Wink
