wow, must be bad.
When I needed a new windscreen on my E46 I tried to avoid using autoglass and paying 70 excess because it is still classed as a claim, even if they do a job for free! Found out that a new windscreen can cost upwards of 800... I had to sit my ass down and just pay the excess.
I'm scared to see how much BMW would ask for.

I had to have a new windscreen a few weeks ago after a tractor sprayed me with gravel. I was very dubious about auto glass as it want a branded BMW screen. Have to say though no issues. The tints are exactly the same and they replaced the rubber. Only difference is no BMW logo in the corner.

Quite a bit actually... beautiful day for playing in the drive / garage.

Fitted Evolution Racewerks full polished charge pipe and forge diverters (ready for Meth kit )

Did the 15ohm mod on my JB4

Cleaned it inside and out (for the first time in months), fed the leather.

On another note, not sure if related..I can hear the motor when I put the fan speed up to max or close to max... it's going in for a regular service next month so will ask but wanted to know if there's going be a cheaper solution in case BMW charge a hefty price for next to nothing lol.

Cleaning is really just a case of setting off one of those bomb things. Something like this.

National windscreens came out to repair screen, guy said it cannot be repaired, they have ordered a genuine BMW screen just waiting for phone call now to arrange fitting, not looking forward to this being done, fingers crossed

Hi

I had these fitted on the Wifes 118D, they were excellent in the snow/slush, also very good in wet or dry winter conditions, Good choice

How is this done? What do you need to buy?
I currently have the silver trim, and would love to have the Piano black.

Is this a simple thing to do? As yours looks amazing!

Thanks.

It's really simple if you take your time. All you do is remove your trim

How to remove interior trim

Apply vinyl to the trim using a hair dryer to to heat up the vinyl to stretch it around curved.Then, trim off any excess with a craft knife.

I was recommended to use 3m vinyl because it's good quality and is perforated so it doesn't leave any air bubbles. Vinyl can be bought on eBay but I bought mine from metrorestyling.com which is in the USA. It cost me £36 delivered including the craft knife.

Type vinyl wrapping tutorial into YouTube. It's easy.
