Had my windscreen changed today with Carglass. To be honest, I'm not that happy with what they did. When taking off the damaged windscreen they cut a little bit in the white cover of the left metal post in front (A-stijl). This is not that bad, because as a driver I don't see it, BUT I HATE IMPERFECTIONS ON MY CAR!
Second of all, along the left post and right post I see BLACK glue, which wasn't there before. Clearly they used to much glue and it doesn't look nice. I think I'll somehow try to take of a little bit of the glue, just to not make it visible.
Oh yeah and there is a little bit of margin with the rearview mirror. I think I'll try to take it of and put some paper or something to tighten it up a bit. I'll try to see how I'll
Nobby, thanx for the tip! I'll try and see what colour my windscreen has. But it should be okť, because I read in a brochure that Carglass gets there windows from exact the same factories as the original car companies do.
Ivo, I don't have a rain sensor, but the lady asked me if I had one when making the appointment. I think they'll keep this in mind when ordering the windscreen.
Anyhow, this weekend I'll give my car a go through the car wash to see if no water gets inside......
