Beware that Pilkington does not always work if you have the rain sensor. I had mine replaced with an offical Pilkington (non BMW logo) glass a couple years back and the sensor has not worked since. I've recalibrated, trouble shot and even replaced the sensor, to no avail. Just my 2cents here as you want to make sure you get it fixed right if you have the sensor. If you don't - who cares the vendor as they are pretty much all the same.

No HUD was ever available for the E46. HUD only came about with iDrive cars and the E46 platform precedes that.

I recently replaced mine in the M5. It was $800 total for labor, warranty, and the parts from safelite. It was well over $1,000 from every other competitor.

HUD glass is expensive


Glass for any other car without HUD? I can get for $150 installed lol.
