Finally I've got a crack in my screen, never been so pleased to take a stone directly on the motorway Rolling with laughter

After wasting an hour of my life, I have accepted a non Pilkington screen. Sometimes life is too short. Yawn

Had mine replaced about 5 weeks ago, Insurers use "Auto-Windscreens" and wasn't impressed but neither my insurer nor auto-windscreens wanted to know so won't be using either again, renewal can't come soon enough! Was replaced with in my opinion a sub-standard screen which doesn't seem to have heating elements right up to the bottom edges leaving about a 2 inch gap on the bottom at the left and right of it, can't remember if the original had a better coverage.

Main gripe is the heated elements "glisten" in the sun. Tempted to throw a brick through it when I renew !!

I'm definitely in the "Autoglass are useless" club !

They came to fix a chip on my RRS screen and ended up cracking the windscreen... but obviously not their fault... I mean the crack wasn't there when they started and was when they left.... never did get this resolved but will never use again...

They also didn't replace the clips when having the screen changed on my D4... huge noise front the front screen and saw trim lifting up... thankfully dealer resolved under warranty

After reading the above I have revised my judgement, I phone Esure and they said that I should get a Pilkington screen.

I must now phone autoglass and tell them, when they refuse, I need to ring Esure back.

Oh the joys! Rolling Eyes

Well nice chap arrived today with a FY screen. Needless to say didn't make it off the van

He agreed they are Censored and understood why I didn't want it.
