Unhappy Arg...

:mad: Driving on NJ Parkway today and as soon I get on, I hear this big crack sound. I knew it that something hit my window and cracked it, so I pulled over and found a crack on my windshield :mad: And couple of days ago, friday, I hit the curb turning right :mad: I wasn't paying any attention turning and then bam...and then today as I was trying to swipe my card into my college parking lot I went in too much and hit the curb AGAIN....grrr..:mad: Words can't describe how pissed off I am and feeling so stupid. Hitting the curb is my fault being stupid, but the cracked windshield is my bad luck.

Crack on windshield:





Today's curb accident (front driver side):




Friday's curb accident (rear passenger side) :




Anyone know any good place to get my rims fixed near NJ Bergen County? And what should I do with my windshield, I don't want to drive with a crack windshield. Would the windshield covered under any warranty?

They are TSW rims, not stock BMW rims.

Would the windshield be covered under any kind of the warranty? Its only year and 4 months old.

No warranty for a cracked windshield. Check you insurance policy. Some policies have a minimal deductible for windshield replacement which is separate from your main deductible.

do you have glass coverage?

Most insurance companies offer zero deductible glass coverage

No warranty on the windsheild, maybe insurance. Get it filled before it cracks.

Please never park anywhere near my car.

I didn't hit the curb parking...I hit the curb when I was trying to swipe my parking card into the machine for me to get in the parking garage...i tried to move in little bit closer so I don't have to put my hand out all the way and by doing that I hit the curb. Non of this accidents happen while parking the car. First curb accident was when I wasn't paying attention on the turn and took it too sharp. And the second curb accident was when I got little too close to the machine to swipe the parking card and hit the curb. I can park perfectly. Driving to the card swipe machine or turning, I'm not too good as you can see.

Went to my dealership and they told me that it would cost me around $125 (for the windshield). Should I do it? Is that price too low or too high?

Too high. I don't know if Safelite is available in your state, but they do a great job, come to your place, for around $60.

Whatever, make fun of me all you want. I know I can drive. Just because I hit the curb 2 times in 5 years doesn't mean I can't drive. We all have done stupid things in life, this is one of them for me.

Got fix a windshield kit from autozone today. Wounder if it works, will find out tonight.

Called USA Wheels in NJ and they said it would be about $200 (per rims), depending on how bad it is, to fix the rims.
