Went out this morning to find that some tosser has put a stone through my rear qtr panel window. the one with the ariel in it. Nothing stolen, they didnt even attempt to get in the car as far as I can see. Just random vandalism. Autoglass want £575 to replace and I cant justify spending that on glass. does anyone know how I can sort this cheaper?

Get the yellow pages out and look for a local glass fitter. I spoke to the Autoglass once about their hideously expensive prices, and they told me that they generally do insurance jobs so indivdual quotes were always more expensive.

I reckon a local one would knock a coupla hundred quid of that price.

Also have a look on eBay, you will probably be able to get a replacement one quite cheaply.

Had this done to mine

except I have tinted glass

Autoglass did it on the cover I get with my insurance, nearly all insurance has glass cover

I had to get UK glass fitted in the end as no one could source a tinted rear, subaru even said it was non standard lol

any way I rang round and could source a glass for 100 plus fitting

but as autoglass had been an abject fail in France they covered my excess as well, so not that bad
