  1. Ohh Venkat ..Feeling bad to see thie mishap on a couple of week old beauty ....

    I am not aware of any method to repair a broken(cracked) windshield ..

    And I strongly recommend you to replace that with a new one . Because it is very dangerous to drive wit ha cracked wind shield .and when you drive @ 100+ kms , the pressure that falls on the windshield is immense . Cant we get a insurance ?

    I can get it replaced under insurance... but it will impact my policy going forward... and i will lose 7k on CR70 anyways :(
    Car is just 15 days old and i have done only 1485 KMS :(

    Oh god... why me :(

    Please get it replaced soon.
    Check what is the price and take a call to use insurance or not. Normally for glass its just 50% coverage.

    As the Crack has increased my advise is to get it replaced as soon as possible, Repair is advised only if there is a star on the screen.

    Thanks folks... will try to go Tomo or day after tomo... Windshield Experts quoted 9K. I believe it should be less than Fiat. Any idea?

    Check with the TASS and then take a decision. If it is 9k, I would advice you to opt for the insurance.

    I feel very sorry for this Venkat. Check with the TASS for a quote. However, I doubt that they will have this part handly. It will be wise to go ahead and replace it with Windshield experts. Check with 3M folks if they can remove your CR and re-stick it. I doubt it but still check. Also, go with insurance. I am sure you will be moving out of Future Generali next year and the amount you lose will be very minimal. Being first year, you will not accumulate much of no claim bonus.
