I have glass coverage, and I was allowed to choose the installer
myself. The money I have to pay doesn't change with the price of the
glass, so of course I chose the dealer and factory glass.. The
windshield on the car now has got a looong crack from one side to the
other.. I have an appointment at 08.00am in Thursday, now only a paint
job is left before the car is restored. (It's a 1987 100 CD (5000)
Turbodiesel - had been sitting for a year because of cracked head. All
other bad stuff too - worn out springs/shocks, ATF in hydraulics, rust
water for coolant, extremely dirty engine bay etc.)
