As I posted, I was hit by . . . something . . . on the interstate and am in need of a new windshield.
Well, . . .
The guy came to install the new one today and informed me that the corners of the windshields of the 08 and 09 are actually a bit different. The corners (all 4) are different. On the 09, the upper ones are corners and the bottom ones have a curved "notch" in it. Also, the molding is different (not something I would have EVER noticed).

So, we now know of SOMETHING different between 08s and 09s.

I have NO IDEA of why the change or of any advantage//disadvantage, or if it was done for the manufacturing line itself (equal, just different).

There was actually an issue on early 08's with the windsheild cracking and there was a Recall that required modding the a-pillars. They probalby found it changing the windsheild helped matters.
Recall? I purchased my 08 in May of 07. I didn't get any notification of a recall. Do you know of a link or more info on this?

That would explain it, as well as the squared off top edges. Thanks.

just ask your dealer if your VIN was in the range of xB's recalled. they should have either a TSW or the recall info available...
