    My 91 TR has a windshield ding on it that is beyond repaire. I am being told that the factory only have windshields without build-in antenas now. Unless I am willing to put in an after-market windshield, which may have a potential fitment issue, I will be down to the CD player or the original Flat-12 soundtrack, courtesy of Ferrari Engineering Department (Can't go wrong with either choices here). My questions are: Does anyone know the truth to the factory discountinuing the windshield and which choice would you make and why. TIA and hope you all have a nice and safe weekend.

    Anthony -- I just went thru this hassle myself. It took 6 months to get a TR windshield with an antenna (although it's a little different in that it's a single antenna wire that runs up the RH side, across the top, and then down the center). It also has a black border at the side edges and at the bottom. I've got the supplier info at home (Nordglass or something) so I'll post it later. I asked if it was actually a 512TR windshield (which is my guess), but my glass shop said it also still cross-referenced to the old TR windshield PN.

    Thanks Steve. Is it from the factory? Does it have the Ferrari emblem on the windshield?

    You might also try Ferrari UK....though being a newer car, they may not be able to assist you

    No, it doesn't have the cavallino rampante insignia in the glass label printing (which is done very nicely in black). The manufacturer is NordGlass, and the glass shop gave me this information:

    Supplier # HT 009772TN (although they were unsure of the supplier? Locan?)

    and

    NordGlass XWS 3444 BZ ANT (with the "BZ" meaning bronze coloration, and the "ANT" con antenna)

    The printing on the glass itself has another number:

    NordGlass 43R-00340 (and some DOT jibberish)

    I was in the same situation -- the local F dealer flatly said sans antenna was the only one available.
