    Default Windscreen.

    Car is due an MOT next week and am at a dilemma,

    Last year he put the windscreen chip down as an advisory as he seen how miffed i was thats what it was gonna fail on, its less than a £1 coin, however its within 10mm of the drivers designated view

    So i can eith put it in tomorrow and hope it passes,

    or

    get it replaced tomorrow, put it in for MOT Sat and hope it passes

    What do you lot think ??

    To be honest if it was me and my screen had a chip that size in it, I'd be looking to replace it anyway. Thats just me though

    If you've got windscreen cover on your insurance it will cost you about £70 (had to have one replaced last year on my saloon), if not it's about £350-£400 usually.

    Autoglass - £560

    Autoglazing - £175

    I do have windscreen cover, so its £75 excess through insurance

    Better safe than sorry. Have you not seen them made up adverts for Autoglass?
