    Hi All

    I have a 2010 Fiat Punto 90HP. During one of my drives from Bangalore to Chennai the windshield developed a crack. Must be some loose stone hitting it. I need to replace my wind shield.

    I need some advice on this. Should i go for to a TASC and get the OEM windshield or is it better to go to WindShield Experts and get it replaced. Any advice would be welcome.

    My Punto's windshield has developed a crack aswell when loose gravel hit it hard on a rainy day. I haven't replaced it yet, cause it doesnot bother me any more (got used to it). But is it mandatory to replace it asap or can run the vehicle for couple of more kms before I get it replaced?

    Better to replace it. In any case, if not today then tomorrow you're going to replace it. So why not today?

    Kiran, Windshield is very much an integral part of the car as it holds the wind force when you drive faster. Better to replace it immediately and if you are planning to go for insurance the earlier the better.

    Better to get it replaced. If you are driving on bad roads etc there is a chance for the crack to grow and shatter the windshield. Also if its a big crack there is a chance of Water Leaking through it.

    Spoke to WindShield Experts Bangalore - Madivala Branch. The cost for the Punto WindShield is Rs 6280/-. (Inclusive of Tax, fitting etc). It will take about 2.5 hours to fix it.

    Thanks all. I will look in to the matter as soon as I am back to India. BTW my insurance will be renewed next week, I will have to get it replaced using the new insurance. And is there a branch of WindShield Experts in Hyderabad?
