Might not be a Safelite job.

So does that give Saintor the edge again since he (presumably) has an intact Audi?

Per the weather thread, I had noted how beyond cold it is here (-36F). The chip was initially small...penny size in total length...but, literally, as I was on the phone with the windshield repair shop so that they can get that resin fix in...the glass split completely across. Sigh.

I have windshield coverage but per Statefarm Canada, I need to eat $1K deductible. Estimate replacement cost with labor is $2500CAD.








I lose my car on Friday for this fix. Hopefully get it back by EoD.
Ugh, sorry to hear about this, if you recall back in May I had the windshield smashed on the Q7, it sucks..

Actually if he brings it to the dealer they're going to use a third party to replace the windshield anyway. Safelite can replace the windshield but it will have to go to the dealer afterwards to have the camera re-calibrated as you mentioned. IMO if the damage isn't too bad I would prefer Safelite to come to me, and then I'll make the appt to bring it to the dealer instead of it sitting at the dealer for several days.

I don't know if Safelite even exists up here. What would be the process...?

I know from checking that the windshield required has to have a coating so that the heads-up is visible...there are some calibrations required but the stealership is handling all of that. Not sure what other techs they will need to bring in.

Glad you got the car back so quickly. Hopefully, this time you can make it to a full month of use without any trips to the dealer.

You would think.


But, this is me.

So, apparently, there is a small plastic cover that goes under the windshield and where the rearview mirror attaches...the crew who replaced my glass decided they wanted to "buff" it as there are scratches and nicks all over it. The dealership is ordering a replacement in and so...I'm going back later this week. Because, apparently, I love it there.

Damn. At this rate they should be upgrading you to an RS5 for all your troubles and giving you R8 each time as your loaner.

I mean i understand that owning a German car requires you to visit your dealer quite often and it seems you are taking fulllll advantage of it

Pretty much any (normal) dealer work is covered for 4 years? Good deal!

Atleast will be on first name basis without having to pay.

I always have to pay...

Still colder than Hoth here. And not exaggerating. Fahrenheit is lower than Celsius.

Got you there man. And I'm sure you paid a lot. It is nice to walk-in, walk-out and not have to budget in the sevice.

I've been getting good discounts from my Honda people, so after a while, they may do the same.

At what point does Fahrenheit drop below Celsius?

That could mean 1 of 2 things... But I'm pretty sure it's 1 out of 2, because 2 out of 2 is outrageous...
