X3 Passenger Window Broken

Hi all, I am new to the forum.

I am very happy with my X3 2015. I bought last week. Yesterday evening, I parked it at my kids school parking lot and after there program I came back to the parking lot, I saw the glass on the passenger side had been broken and shattered by thieves. The back hood was left open and no Alarm goes off. I am surprize with Alarm system as it should goes off once some one open the door alothough there were couple other car's glass got broken too.
Finally reported to parking police. Now, I have a question. Should I just drive to one of the authorzied BMW dealership repair shop and have it fix, or should I find local repair shops that particularly repair windows and glass on vehicles? I have full coverage from my auto insurance, but my comprehencive deductiable is $1000. Any one has such experience in Halifax, NS

Thanks in advance for your input.

If your comprehensive deductible is $1000, I would find a reputable auto glass replacement shop and ask them to order an OEM glass and install it. You can also call your local BMW dealer and ask them which glass shop they use for replacement window work.

I would recommend going to the BMW dealership or authorized repair shops. Insurance would prefer you choose the cheaper preferred garages, but you have the choice instead of worrying they use cheaper aftermarket parts. Remember the repair cost is capped at the deductible, so even if BMW is more expensive insurance would still honour the claim. The Adjuster is not your friend, be careful in accepting their recommendations on a cheaper repair shop.
