    Windscreen options

    Had a stone flick up while driving down the M2 this morning Thought I had got away with a chip, but by the end of the day it has cracked a few inches.

    My current windscreen has a green tint at the top - is this standard ?

    Are there any other options or specs of windscreen, or is it just tint or no tint ?

    Hopefully get an Audi one out of RAC windscreens...

    Stringster,

    The last thing still in the 2000 model S4 that I have broken is the screen. It has a green tint across the top. It's yours for 10 if you want to come and remove it - they are bonded in. I am near Dartford in Kent so not too far from you.

    I am not sure if people like Autoglass and RAC do OE windscreens. I thought you got whatever they had like Pilkington glass.

    Let me know,
    John

    Thanks for the great offer John. Would like to but I'm not going to take you up on it.
    I've got a young baby and just moved house, so no time for fitting it myself !

    RAC have agreed and ordered an Audi screen. Couldnt confirm if the OE one has a green tint or not - anyone?

    I'm fully comp with Bell, so it only costs the 70 excess.

    Just renewed the insurance last week and the excess was 50 last year

    For reference the Audi replacement screen has a grey tint at the top.

    I have to replace the screen in my 80 twice due to stone chips etc. Autoglass have had the original fitment screen with correct green tint etc both times. luckily my insurance policy covered the cost

    audi list, and produce (as do other replacement glass places) 5 different variations.

    Green allover with green sunstrip
    Grey allover, green sunstrip
    green allover, grey sunstrip
    grey allover, grey sunstrip
    (and if your lucky) clear allover

    dont get an autoglass screen, get a direct audi replacement. trust me. ive had an ongoing dispute with auto-farce

    I had mine changed the other week for £50 excess on my insurance and the lady on the phone said it would be green at the top but when the fitter came to put it on he said that it was grey at the top and would this be ok. I think i prefer the grey tho to the green. and then the clever chap put my near side wiper blade on too high and then they caught in the middle bending my brand new bosch wiper blade. So i had to drive an hour out of my way for three people to look at the car and say yes its bent it and they are ordering the part from audi and were ment to give me a call back the next day but i haven't heard anything from them and that was a week ago! and the fitter left loads of mess and bits of broken glass on the seat and dash. the company was RAC auto windscreens
