    Eek I need a new windscreen...

    Well, on the way down to get my new interior someone/something decided my windscreen needed to have a big hole in it..

    So, as I'm going to put in an anti dazzle mirror I thought I'd try and order one for that, but noticed some have a "sun visor strip" and some don't.

    If I want the one with the visor across the top what would I ask for exactly?

    Asking for an anti dazzle mirror with sun visor strip windscreen doesn't quite sound right...

    Has anyone done this before? Will they just go off my reg or can I specify a screen myself?

    If you want one with the sunstrip, just say it has a top tint and they will bring you one

    Mine was done by the RAC Autowindscreens and they was not bothered the old one didnt have one

    My insurance company use the RAC. If they question it I'll say it had one previously but got replaced wrong...

    Just ask for one with the rain sensor and if you want the sun strip you'll have to go for a pattern part (non-Vx one) as Vx stopped doing them with sun strips a couple of years ago.

    They will if you specify it - you're entitled to have the original manufacturers screen as a replacement, you just won't get the sun strip if you chose to do so.

    I have had 2 windscreens replaced recently ! Both times they came looked at the screen and ordered up a new one the same, both OEM parts. Both autogass, I am sure if you asked for a strip they would oblige as they charge your insurance company ...

    I had to have a windscreen a couple of weeks ago, mine is rain sensing wipers with no strip, but they only listed rain sensing wipers with the strip so I got my screen upgraded, whose your insurance with?? mine was with Direct Line.
