  • vxr8 windscreen

    Hi, does anyone know where I can get a front windscreen in uk I have water leak at top of screen which I have been told can only be fixed by removing my screen and re fitting.
    knowing my luck it will crack taking it out .
    was wondering what availability of new screens is ?
    any advice
    forgot to say my car is vxr8 ls3 2009

    Autoglass etc is probably your best

    I'd give them a ring for a quote so you at least have an idea

    Alternatively most insurance policies have windscreen cover which doesn't affect you ncd if claimed on, usually costs about £75 excess

    It would only have to have a crack in the windscreen to warrant replacing so use your imagination lol

    I think most windscreens nowadays cost in excess of £400 and then a fitting fee on top

    2009 Astra H Vxr arden blue uprated gearbox endcase with bigger bearings, 3" cobra catback non res with toyosport 2.5 double decat, mtc crossover delete and tophat

    Planning to go stage 3/3.5 eventually

      Thanks for your help I will try auto glass,
      my main concern is the three glass fitters I have tried were not able to source a screen as soon as you mention vxr8 you get a sharp intake of breath
      don't mind paying for new screen if I need to just don't want to be stuck with a car with a leaking screen as I use my motor daily
