I thought the specks might be some kind of overspray or contaminate on the surface, but after thoroughly cleaning the windshield and trying to remove contaminates via steel wool they are still there... :swear: Maybe I got a defective windshield or it's possibly is a biproduct of the acoustic laminated windshield? Either way, it bugs the crap outta me! :headbang:

Yeah I've noticed. I thought maybe it was something with my windshield tint. Guess not.

I have a sport and no upgraded sound system so I wouldn't have the special windshield?

Right?!? I'm bringing it in later this week for an oil change, I'm going to bring this up with them then and see what they say and can do to remedy the situation. I'm so OCD this is never going to fly with me! :angry:

Odd. I have acoustic glass and it looks normal.
I typically notice it when the sun is setting and comes straight through the glass. Check it out closer when it's in these lighting conditions. I apologize in advance if you do notice it and it drives you bonkers like it does me... :lipssealed:

The acoustic laminated windshield only comes with the premium upgraded stereo system.

I'm sorry that others have this issue as well, but glad to see that I'm not the only one who's noticed this flaw.

I have a windshield " fetish" I guess ....needs to be clean !

Living down here and driving at dusk or dawn with sun directly into the glass shows up everything I missed cleaning it :facepalm::facepalm::giggle::giggle:

Not the end of the world but I notice it often

I have a Rubicon with standard stereo and I have the acoustic glass. It says "acoustic" on the lower drivers side corner.

I don't see specs, but I do see some suction cup looking marks under the right lighting. Seems to be on the inside, but I have had no luck cleaning them off.

Nothing wrong with my windshield. I can see from certain angle the suction cup marks, but honestly with the bugs I get on the windshield, nothing else is noticeable. I clean it daily, and daily gets dirty :(
