    Default cracked windscreen.

    hi all,
    a few weeks ago i noticed a small crack starting at the base of my windscreen in the middle, didn't think much of it until this afty went out to my veccy and it went right to the top.
    nothing while i've been driving has hit the screen so i am thinking it could be down to speed bumps, body/chassis flexing. (hard suspension in my sxi)
    i don,t think the screen is the original as it is too clean for 115k.

    has anyone else experienced this with the veccy??

    If you look very closely , there will probably be a very small stonechip somewhere on the crack , it will have been creeping whilst you were driving .
