Quick question
Do the 124 and the mx5 share the same windscreen?

Having seen them side by side I'd say they do.  It'd be daft for them to be different and seeing the hood's the same the screen must be too.

Thatís what I thought
Auto glass seem to be taking a long time to source one

Took auto ass 6 weeks to get mine, and its a 2 man job! Also they have to replace all the plastic surrounds as they cant get them off without braking them, guessing that's the Italian side of the design then.

Did Autoglass do a satisfactory job, buckwits?  I've just got a stone in mine with a longish crack, driver's side, so it's going to need doing.
I'm a bit concerned about the trims, was this done OK?

Auto glass just changed another cars screen and I had to get them back to refit the trim. Hope you have a better experience. I expect you did it on insurance but any idea on the cost?

Couldn't complain RSK, and that's unlike me! Since then I have a chip in the new screen, see if they can repair this one. £25 excess for a repair though, is that a lot or am I getting old?
