New Windshield - So Happy

After 24K miles and six track days, my windshield is hard to even see through with certain angles of sun. Finally was hit by a rock that cracked the windshield and had it replaced under insurance.

What a difference! It's like driving a new car, loving it. Probably would have been worth it to pay for the replacement.

I had them install OEM glass, just trust it more. I think they reused the rain sensor etc.. but they get a new kit with the rubber seals etc.. that go around the windshield.

It was covered by insurance, but the bill showed about $750 for the replace.

That actually isn't bad if it was $750 parts labor. I'd have guessed double that.

I have an E90 M3, and I noticed after I bought it that my windshield does not have the upper tint. I think the coupes have the upper tint but not the sedans. Did your replacement glass have the tint?

Yes it does have tint but seems a bit lighter than the original.

The sedans and 3 series wagons haven't had the dark band of tint across the top of the windshield since early 2009. I'm sure the next M3 coupe and vert will not have it either.
