Autoglass repair, Autoglass replace!!

And they come to wherever you are!! Mine cost £70 I'm guessing yours will be a lot more!

Geez, Li seriously £400!!!!!

Of course the dealer put her off!! The glass isn't MINI branded but it's probably exactly the same screen. You don't even have to contact your insurance. Just phone Autoglass and they do the rest! Is really easy!

I know you have it sorted now, but they're fine! They're a windscreen company, it's what they do!! Very Happy

IT WOULD NOT BE VERY PROFFESIONAL OF US TO START RANTING ABOUT ANOTHER GARAGE!!! SO WE MUST BE CAREFULL
THE SUSPENSION ARM BUSHES ARE COMMON FAIL ITEMS IF VERY WORN AND IT DOES REQUIRE THE FRONT SUBFRAME TO BE LOWERED AND WE WOULD GENERALLY SUGEST YOU USE YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY FOR THE WINDSCREEN (WE WOULD ALLOW THEM TO DO IT HEAR SO THAT WE COULD KEEP AN EYE ON THEM)
SHAME YOUR NOT MORE LOCAL. ALWAYS HERE FOR ADVICE AND COMPARATIVE QUOTES THOUGH

most insurers require you to use their approved windscreen/glass company and will charge an excess of between £50/75 - if you check your policy it could allow you to get it done by a different company but normally the excess is doubled - so could be £150 !!

This means you may still be able to make a claim on your insurer and recoup some of what the dealer is charging. Ask them to do you 2 invoices, 1 for screen & 1 for other work.

This will have no effect on you NCD Li - believe me!!

Get it back Li and get it sorted elsewhere! You are paying way over the top for the same service anywhere independant! BMW/MINI are just expensive garage services no better than anywhere else!

OK Dawn, just get it booked into a MOT centre as soon as you can Smile

It is perfectly legal to drive to a MOT centre for a test as long as you have a booking Smile

As the others said we have all had an overdue MOT at some time, just smile nicely at the policeman Wink
