Hi Guys

I am in the process of trying to have my windscreen replaced by Autoglass, however, I am requesting a "proper" one from Mr Nissan, has anyone gone around this loop ? I am now into my second day of chasing AG and am hanging on while they call my local AG Branch to find out if they have one :confused:

Surley AG just get one from Nissan rather than the Chinese copies they generally use ??

Any idea how much a genuine Nissan GTR Windscreen is, if I need to purchase one myself ? (and then claim back)

Apparently Middlehurst is around £900 for an OEM one and they will know how to remove them without destroying your pillar trims.

I can highly recommend Steve the Dentpusher, but he's based in the Bath area, not sure if he travels as far as you but worth a call 07849 432721. He did some bonnet dents on my last GTR after some twat walked on the bonnet, and got them out 100% perfect.

I wonder why it matters? I mean everyone goes out of their way to fit non Nissan after market parts on just about every other mod, don't they?
The one from Auto glass is slightly smaller than a Nissan one and has been known to create a problem with wind noise!

My autoglass screen was perfect, chap was devastated and almost in tears when he cracked my trim with final clip.

Manager was dead nice and they replaced fully, painted, ordered from Nissan part (toke three months) the entire part with no questions at all.

They did say that the screen was the second most expensive on their files.....to a Rolls Rolls Phantom!!!
