    New Windscreen

    Hi Guys,

    There are quite a few stonechips on my S3's windscreen and now I've just got one right in my line of sight which is really annoying.
    Is it worth having all the little chips fixed or just replacing the entire windscreen? Any ideas what I would be looking at in terms of cost for going down that route?

    Cheers

    I think its around 200 for a new windscreen fitted. I cant wait to get a proper stonechip lol! But then I can retrofit autolights/wipers etc:P

    Ah thanks, not quite as bad as I thought it might be then.

    Can the autolights/wipers retrofit be done after the new windscreen fitting or does it need to be done at the same time?
    Any ideas on the cost of that?

    If you have screen cover its even cheaper, if you are looking at fitting auto wipers etc, oh dear that chip has developed into a crack, better get my insurance company to swap it out............................

    Just had my screen replaced for the £70 excess

    My original one didn't have a top tint so I just told them mine did, now I have a nice brand new screen with tint and no chips!
