I have a small crack in the windshield from where a rock hit it. It is near down near the wipers so it isn't that noticeable but I was wondering if anyone knew if this was an easy fix and how much it generally costs to get fixed.

mine was transported from one dealer to another, when they cleared off the snow, there was a 6 inch crack from the base of the windshield going upwards at a 45º angle. The dealer said he would fix it for free (a $750 repar) :shock:

$750 repair, you have got to be kidding me. That might be the dealer's price, but you can get a windshield replaced at certain places for less than $400. Some people keep their comprehensive on their insurance under $500 (around $250) because $500 is just more than the cost to replace a windshield so if they do need it replaced, they use their insurance and only have to pay $250 instead of full price for it. Fixing a windshield should cost no more than a couple hundred to be a good alternative to replacing it.

What worries me, though, is that the rearview mirror and rain sensor assembly in the windshield might raise the price of replacing a M3 'shield.

I have a 6 inch crack in mine too, from a small rock. Passenger side. Sucks.

There are places that can do some sort of an injection or something to stop the crack from continuing to lengthen I believe.

What kind of insurance do you guys have? Whenever one of our cars gets a crack in the windshield, the insurance always covers the replacement.

Some insurance companies offer that even if you don't have a $0 deductible for comprehensive, but sadly with my driving record (2 speeding tickets and 2 not-at-fault accidents) Geico and Progressive are the only ones I can get under $1000 for 6 months.
