Replacing Windshield...

I replaced mine a few months ago not using insurance for ~$325 - they drove 
over, popped in a new windshield and gasket (~$70 on the gasket) - no leaks 
so far. I took it to a local shop and they scheduled like 4 windshield 
replacements for that day so it made the 90 mile drive more cost effective 
for the installer.
