    I test drove a MS in Scottsdale, and the bottom 1/2 inch of the windshield had a warp/distortion. Later I rode in a friends MS and it too had a warp. Nothing much is obscured by this, but would you call this a flaw that needs a fix, or just one-of-those things? ( so it is a two for two but that is a small data set. Do others have such a warp? Does it Matter?)

    It's normal. Majority of the cars have it. It has to do with how the windshield is made and curvature of the windshield that causes the distortion.

    Thanks for the links to Windshield Distortion. It was a new observation to me, but obviously not to the community. You guys COULD have beaten me up, but instead you graciously guided me into the answers I needed. Thanks.
