Bumping an old thread...
I have a 2015 with Eyesight and getting my windshield replaced next week with OEM.
My insurance claims adjuster was a real douche, and basically refused OEM (Even after I explained the whole Eyesight needs Subaru glass and whatnot) she continued, saying the aftermarket was "just as good", even went so far as saying I would have to pay out of pocket and get reimbursed if I went somewhere out of their network (Sefelite) NOPE, Unacceptable!
I've been with this insurance company for about 10 years and never filed a claim, so this experience was a real eye opener.
Anyway, a phone call to their corporate office... I'm now getting OEM with the molding installed - thanks to the helpful tips from the original post - and getting it installed from the dealer recommended installer who has experience replacing windshields with Eyesight.
As a side note, the main insurance claims adjuster I spoke with and the recommended installer both mentioned that there is NO equivalent aftermarket glass for the Forester equipped with Eyesight.
