Question Sport (Smoked) Windshield for RS

I bought a smoked (BMW Accessory) windscreen for my RS and it arrived today. The tinting in it is strangely "swirled." Forgive the figure of speech, but it looks like someone didn't stir the tinting enough, ha. Anyhow - does anyone else have one of these windscreens that can tell me if this is normal, or if I should return it for a replacement? Thanks!

Definitely not normal.

I have that screen and it is evenly tinted. Prone to scratching like all BMW screens but evenly tinted. I can post a close up photo if needed.

Thanks all - just doing a sanity check before I ask for a return authorization. I'll be doing that tommorrow based on what you all are saying.
