    Claim on your insurance, it should not affect your no claims! And make sure you get the one that can have rain sensors and light pack installed too

    I don't think claiming on glass effects your insurance.... but maybe that's just for repairable stuff.... best to give your insurance a bell

    Claiming for new screen doesnt on most reputable policies & any I know of effect the policy, just a small excess to pay the fitter usually about 50 & make sure its got the correct fitment for your mirror/sensor & NO YOU DONT haVE TO REPLACE THESE BUT MAKE SURE YOU ADVISE YOU HAVE RAIN SENSOR & dimming mirror

    whoops hit caps & cant be arsed to change now.

    Who told you that? most screens used by auto windscreens / national windscreens are OEM manufactured and in many cases are gen anyway.

    This is not entirely true Lee, none of them are oem manufacturered as far as I know, they use several companies to produce for them, but replacements are usually always manufacturer specification for safety sake cause most are changed through insurance companies anyway so have to be covered otherwise has legal ramifications, so doubt they're cheap copies or **** made, had several screens & they have always been as good as last.

    The windscreen companies cant afford to sell **** because of the work they would lose & also bottom line safety guys, legally they'd be seriously fecked if the screens were poor, with the new bonnets mods for euro crash tests etc you can imagine the glass requirements aswell.

    structurally they will more than likely be the same but the optical clarity was the main difference!
