However if you go for a full set of Powerflex bushes that will be £400 straight away lol Don't bother - they are only really for track use, and will make the ride VERY hard and uncomfortable for roads, stick with OEM rubber which is less durable but has more 'give'. Smile

very large markup on some parts - that's why you need to shop round Smile

we sell a coach windscreen for in excess of £1200, costs us less than £200 Shocked + fitting costs Surprised

WTF? Windscreen probably only cost you around £50 excess on your insurance surely!

Don't think it will affect too much! Windscreen coverage is different I think! But you need to consult your documentation! Do you not have a No claims protection to protect your NCB? Wouldn't have thought it would go up much! Windscreens are a common claim!

I couldn't and still can't protect my no claims as I am too young, I'm guessing Li might be in the same situation.

I don't think Li will have much NCD due to age and normally you can only protect it when you have earnt maximum. I've not seen a policy that a windscreen claim effects NCD Smile

But maybe there are some.....

who are you insured with Li Question

Your windscreen should be covered on the insurance and you just pay the excess. Won't change your no claims at all!!

I really wouldn't pay for it through BMW, will be a lot! And you can go and get another chip or crack 5 minutes down the road. I got a massive chip yesterday having had it replaced a month ago!!
