    Make sure he doesnt scratch the paint when he cuts the old screen out as it'll rust if any moisture gets to it.

    Make sure he fits the scuttle panel back properly and doesnt damage it, as pollen filter area can get wet and cause condensation or water to get into the car.

    Good stuff, oh and make sure he seals it properly.

    When I had mine done, it wasnt, so if i was driving at speed on the motorway, you could hear a very feint whistle.

    30 minutes seems quick to me. See here.

    Did he remove the wipers, and wiper cowl?

    if the screen has a rain sensor, did he add a new gel pad/coating? Windscreen Rain (and Light) Sensors: Audi | Glasstec Paul

    Did he decontaminate the new glass before prepping it?

    What did he cut back the old adhesive with?

    Did you get the opportunity to inspect the paintwork after he'd cut back?

    Sorry for coming into this thread late, but I've only just seen it.
