The 1st stone I have heard hit it has cracked my windscreen, a nice 12" L shaped crack from the top next to the body to around the sensor.
My old R50 had windscreen that looked like it had been machine gunned and not cracks at all !!
So my insurance have told me I have to use Autoglass, when I booked it I told them about the Auto Lights/wipers but they did not seem concerned. So have any of you used Autoglass and what sort of job do they do, also do you have auto lights/wipers ?
One chip and a nice crack in the screen, lets hope this is not how things are going to be, otherwise I will be soon be broke.......... :(

If you get a chip near the edge it is likely to turn into a crack..

Not used Autoglass for a MINI but on another make they were fine, when I had to have a MINI one replaced it was Auto Windscreens, they fitted a Pilkington made screen who also make MINI's so all ok :)

Sh1t happens, dont worry about it, Autoglass are fine used them loads, probably had 6 or 7 screens over the last 10 years (not on Mini's but Audi's and other stuff with auto wipers and lights).

I had a puncture 1 week in, thought my world had ended for 24hrs :(
