I have 100,000 miles on my 2003 325Ci, basically all high-speed highway driving. The windshield looks like it has been sandblasted, and is actually hard to see through in certain lighting conditions. I have been thinking of just throwing a baseball through it and telling the insurance company "Duh, err, gee, dunno what happened!", but that would be unethical, so I guess I'll just pay for it myself.

Anyone know how much a windshield replacement would cost? No rain sensor.

Given you're in MA, I'd ask the insurance company. I know out of pocket it's probably ~300-500. JN Philips might be able to give you a recommendation regarding ways to get insurance coverage as I would imagine this can lead to you not passing the annual inspection.

If you don't mind driving to Queens, NY there are tons of junkyards next to the Shea Stadium which I am sure will have a windshield for your car. And at a very cheap price too.

Call your insurance company. I'm pretty sure MA has a mandated windshield replacement program run by all of the insurance companies. You'll have to pay the deductible.

Yeah, but if he has a $500 deduct like I do then it is best to take care of it out of pocket and keep the claim off your insurance. Just my 2 cents.

Just replaced the windshield in my wife`s `98 E36.....SafeLite came to the house and did the job for $254.90 , clean & perfect install. IMHO, it`s not worth filing an insurance claim for that amount of money.

Regards,
Bob
