Its finally happened and my windscreen is going to have to be replaced Sad, driving back through france monday got a big stone flick up and leave a big chip, went back up to the car today and it had cracked in the sun!

So my question is for a heated windowscreen with the rain sensor, how much is it going to cost????

I'm just bloody thankfull i only have to pay the £70 excess!!! 8)

Why you thinking of paying outright. Just get done throught your insurance & pay the excess, it wont affect your NCB if you have windscrren cover on your policy as there a seperate claim. I had 2 on chili now & got a few on her current one, even had to have this one repaired not long after it was installed, the screens are a nightmare on the mini Sad

Depends also who your insurance company use as autoglass are the best but dont even touch RAC autowinsdcrens etc as they bodge Sad

Cant help on the prices but hope the ^^ wll help

it all got done, by National Windscreens who i would reccomend, friendly bloke and i think we spent more time chatting then he did replacing the screen Laughing

Its not MINI branded glass anymore but the heater element is a lot less visible so am pleased with the result for the £70 excess...

we also had the stone chip that i picked up on the way to beuleie done and its a really good fix still visible if you look hard enough but better than a new screen, cost us nothing(went through insurance) and done by autoglass!
