Got out from coaching the kid's b-ball and found my windshield cracked. Very odd as the cracks are in a circle. Sized like a baskeball. I think someone kicked a soccer ball and it must have hit it?? I dunno.

I have a $100 deductible so I'll go ahead and have it fixed. Who makes a good OEM quality windshield? I have to call a 1800 number and I have a choice of various places.

I know PPG is decent but I looked at my windshield and it was some oddball foreign company name on it. I doubt I'll get the exact same company's glass so....

Go to search, advanced search, type in windshield, and select search titles. I found half a dozen on this forum.

The only thing you need is an acoustic windshield like meantioned earlier. That's the oem one or close enough to it.

No one could locally source a Saint Gobain-Sekurit (OEM) in my area so I went with a PGW (used to be PPG before they spun off the glass business). It's worked well for me and is an acoustic windshield as others above have noted. (PGW calls it "Soundmaster" and it's marked on the windshield)

I’m sorry to read about your windshield, Jeff92se. I hope things will go smoothly with the install.

Check with your insurance company, glass coverage is required in my state (free glass replacement/repair).

I had safelite replace mine twice so far....pay $25 and have them come to you, do not take it to their facility. The mobile guys have more experience IMO.

Troy - I'll check the receipt but that sounds about right for what I paid for a PGW.

400 installed? Is that the rate without insurance? That is bad at all. I'd expect 600+. Hell, my deductible is 300....
