Yes, managed to get it sorted in the end. Autoglass came last week with a windscreen that shipped from Alfa Romeo in Italy and it had the correct rubber strip along the top. The fitter said that it cost Autoglass over £500 to buy it, so I think that they are just trying to save money by supplying OEM Pilkington glass instead of the correct Alfa Romeo branded one.
Just say that you won't accept the windscreen unless it has the rubber strip along the top as it is there to protect the glass on the roof. They'll then have to order it from Italy and it will take about a week to get to the UK. I didn't have to pay anything more than my insurance excess.
