eMiata window shouldn't affect resale if properly installed. It is actually a clearer, more durable material than the OEM. My only beef with it (and why I changed my window installed by a previous owner) is that the canvas trim around the edge kept coming loose, curling up, and looking less than finished.

The best idea I have seen yet for protecting the rear window (OEM or otherwise) is to cut a pool noodle to length, cover it with a towel and insert it in the fold while lowering the top.
