    Doesn't sound repairable to me. A reputable windscreen repairer should advise you accordingly. If you have comprehensive insurance , a repair should cost you nothing , and a replacement your windscreen excess (usually about £80).

    No one repairs 6" cracks in windscreens, only chips are repairable. Tell your work colleague he's a retard.

    Most comprehensive policies have windscreen cover, mandatory excesses vary between £50 and £150, so check your policy
    Remember it's a claim, won't affect your NCB, but it IS recorded and needs to be declared

    I had been having an argument with Churchill three years ago as they processed a windscreen repair as a windscreen claim, they refused to amend the claim as I had taken the car to their agent BEFORE contacting them!
    Had I known they were going to do that, then I would have claimed for a new windscreen!
