Cracked windshield: options?

Hi,
Windshield is cracked and I was told appr.$1300 for the repair (dealer). Does anyone have experience with after market ones? Any suggestions?
My deductible is high so don't want to go with insurance...
Thanks a lot,

If you are still looking to get the glass replaced I have a place for you.


$250 plus tax. Complete with rainsensor. I recently had one installed in my 07 335i.

Guy was great and work was done in less than 2 hours. If you are interested let me know and I'll give you the shop details.

That's a really good price. I paid more than that for my E36 back in the day without a rain sensor.

Taken the day of the surgery... lol.

Just checked my reciept.. came to $282.50 with Tax.. I paid Debit.

You might be able to save the tax if you pay cash.

Hey... I replaced my windshield about a month and a half ago... its been great. Guy did a fantastic job..

Bmw quoted me $1600.00 a few independant shops quoted me 600-800
or the other option was my insurance but my deductible was $500...

But then i discovered this place and kept all my money in my wallet.

I think the company was Sprint Auto Glass. It was on Victoria Park in Scarborough.
But i think they have a few locations.
Call 416-510-1234 Ask for Len Tell him Debi sent you. Comes with receipt and warranty... no shady business.

happy to help

Let me know how it works out for you.
