    Default Flippin Heck!! How Much?????

    Noticed at the weekend that the rubber seal round the glass on my sunroof was deteriorating and had come away at one end. Whilst it's not leaking yet and still works fine, I thought I'd better look at replacing the seal.

    So, I phoned my usual contact at the local dealers and the two of us nearly died when he saw the details...

    You can't buy the seal seperately, you HAVE to buy the glass with the seal attached!! Ok, I said, go on, scare me, how much?

    £450 TRADE!!!

    I laughed at him, he laughed at me and we agreed I wouldn't be bothering to buy it at this time. So next chance I get I'm gonna be spending a lot of time cleaning the existing seal and applying a little mastic where it's come off to stick it back into place lol

    £450 !!! JEBUS BLOOMING CHRIPES

    A glass sunroof will be covered if you have glass cover on your insurance.

    Lets hope it doesnt break at some point
