    I'd go for insurance. I have to buy one for my old shaped A3 as it was under a traders policy & windscreen wasn't covered. Cheapest I could get it was for was £195 IIRC!

    Why wouldn't you go through insurance? £75 is a bargain compared to the full price.

    If you need time to save up, leave it until your MOT is due as it would be a failure.

    No, window repaire will not affect your NCB, when they ask you if the car has a rain sensor just say yes, then you need to contact vw cruise and you can get the auto lights/rain sensor etc etc to work as it depends on the type of windscreen. last time i was quoted a rain sensored windscreen from autoglass it was 695+ vat :eek: so yes go through insurance mate!
