    Well I had my front windshield replaced today because a big fat rock hit it on Monday on the way home. It was getting bigger and bigger every day. But man what a difference in sight! Feels like a new car. Anyway, just thought I'd share my misfortune. Btw, I'm glad I don't have the 'lane warning departure system' as this glass is EXPENSIVE.

    The 'REAL' inifiniti oem windshield from Japan is over $600.00 and more for the one with lane departure warning system. I don't know exactly what the difference is but the difference is significant.

    I had it replaced here by my home with by a company that does the windshields for Parkway Inifiniti and other dealers. They use the equivalent of the oem glass but made here in the U.S. by 'Pilkington.' I paid $225.00+tax. Price included new moldings ordered form infiniti and installation.

    For the same job and materials I was quoted alot higher in Los Angeles. $340.00+tax + 35.00 for the new moldings.

    You should have went custom and go polyurethene or Lexon or something=) Kind of like a carbon fiber hood for your windshield=) not sure how much lbs you'd save or if you'd lose visibility. not to mention the insane price it would have been.

    Damn that sucks Keemo...my uncle living in Calgary says you're not a true Albertan till your windshield gets cracked lol...i heard it happens all the time there so its not even covered by insurance...is that true?

    true story; the FIRST day my sister moved to calgary (this summer) after her car made it there by train we were driving and she got a chip in her windshield :confused:

    i had my windshield replaced last time after shattering from a flying rock on the highway. i have LDW too! cost me over 1k. even the generic windshield from those mobile installers cost over 1k!!! it's because of the cutout in the top tinted blue region of the windshield for the LDW camera. 400-500 bucks for a tiny cutout.....messed up! luckily insurance paid

    Yah, your uncle is right. Two weeks after moving here from Victoria it happend. and Two months after getting the FX it happend again. The insurance has an option where you'll pay like $30/month but then when it happends there is like a $200-$300 deductible. :rofl: What a joke when a new (not OEM) windsheild can be installed for $325 or so. And there's no point in getting an OEM for double cause in two weeks it's just gona crack again.:LOL: Dam farmers and truckers!
