Recommend glass shop for windshield R&R in Edmonton?

Hi Folks,

For those in the Edmonton area, where would you take your BMW for a windshield replacement?

I've seen various recommendations on other forums like 780, but there seems to be emphasis on price and speedy service in the replies. But they might be referring to where to take their economy shitbox for all I know.

My priority would be more on what shop is likely to take the best care of my 335i during the process. (And this is partly based on a bad experience having a windshield done on my wife's Altima a few years ago). Cost and time is secondary.

Thanks!

I took mine to Apple Autoglass when I was in Edmonton. Ordered the OEM glass from BMW and had them deliver it to Apple. It was a lot cheaper (and my contacts in the dealerships even admit that they don't do their own glass and just bring someone in or drive your car to the glass shop).

So you've got quality covered AND cost and time.
