be it known..the car is obviously a standard E39 body..and the windshields are CHEAP. there are literally...what, a few million? E39 bodies out there, with the same windshield.
$400, or so.
The better actual BMW glas is best, for road noise, though.
i think it is about $600-700 for actual BMW glass.
First thing you do, is tell the shop that YOU are paying for the windshield, not an insurance claim. Then let them give you a price. The price usually drops to less than half of what they charge the insurance companies. At least here in Ontario, that's what happens.
