what's the install process like?
The adhesive that holds the stock glass in place is quite pliable. A tool is used to split the adhesive around the perimeter of the window (it helps to remove the seats from the car and do this from the interior). Pull the window out.

Place a bead of windshield adhesive around the perimeter of the CF window panel, press in place and allow to cure.

If you have a window removal blade, the process is simplified.

Here is a link that shows the process of removing a generic windshield... of course, this flat piece of glass is far easier to remove than a windshield. Can be done in a few minutes (not including removing the seats).

Glass Removal and Installation

Alternatively, your local window replacement folks will have a pneumatic "windshield knife" tool that makes the removal of the old window very simple.

As noted in the link above, window can break during removal. Ask me how I know.. :) I imagine using a pneumatic knife is almost a guarantee of a broken rear window.

The CF is from a top notch supplier, everything is made and produced in the USA. The sound will be slightly different than glass, but not a big difference.
