Re: Advice Please - BMW Glass Windscreen
I'm somewhat confused by Neil's comment that the tint has scratched as I don't think the tint is on the outside of the glass on factory fitted grad tint or climate comfort screen.
I've had three 3 series BMWs, 2 330 Cis - 1st with grad tint - no problems with chips or scratching, 2nd with climate comfort screen again no problems with chips or scratching, 3rd (M3) with climate comfort screen - I've got a more or less identical scratch to you caused by grit in wiper blade and have several chips. I wonder if BMW have changed their windscreen glass supplier.
I'd be wary of changing your screen too soon given the quality of workmanship of some replacement glass companies.
