Rock On

Rock on my windshield, that is.
Bummer. Heard the hit last night.
This morning? 12" snaking crack down the driver's side.

Gonna look ghetto till it gets replaced.

That sucks. Hopefully you can get that replaced soon. Are you going to go through the dealership?

D'oh! Dealership! Of course - finally a good use for their meticulously overpriced parts and service!!

I called my insurance company (glass is covered but with an absurd $500 deductible) and they wanted to set me up with "Speedy Auto Glass" right away, no problem. I said I'd call them back, checked your posts here, and glad I did! Insurance company was giving me attitude about wanting a genuine BMW windshield... "car is older...blablabla" whatever. If I'm paying a freaking $500 deductible, I'm getting whatever the hell I want!!

So I called my dealership - "No problem. Tell them to call us. We'll let them know you're getting a genuine part. Don't worry."

Called Insurance back to cancel the Speedy appointment... wooweee were THEY cranky!! Ha. Argued with me for about 5 minutes over WHY I wanted to go to the dealership until they finally relented.

Sorry guys - you wanna charge me $500 for a $400 repair with Speedy auto then raise my rates? Hey, I know, how does "bite my ho-ho" sound, I just TRIPLED your bill AND I'm getting genuine parts.

Sucks, I had a chip on the upper passenger side, I hit a major pot hole 200 miles away from home.. Bent rim, flat tire, windshield cracked and a bolt holding the fender popped which made it unflush with the hood. Not fun
