    how bad is it, you may be able to get it fixed rather than replacing the whole screen

    Autoglass link
    there is a little slideshow explaining this.

    ouch, when is your insurance renewal? is it viable to go comp then? or is it too bad it cant wait?
    average price for windscreen damage is around £50-£80 i think
