Hi All

Any idea where is the best place to get a front Windscreen for a 4.8?

I see you in Boksburg, try BSG Glass, in Anderbolt, go down Atlas traveling south from Northrand, at the robot by the Afrox shop turn right, and then first right again, just carry on until you find them on your left hand side.

Whatever you do don't go to Glassfit or PG.
They are allegedly fixing prices. An investigation into price fixing was launched a few years ago, and then stopped, without any fanfare, and for no apparent reason.

Insurers are however contracted with the two big names, which makes it a lot more convenient to go straight to them.

For a Patrol windscreen, you can pay from 8500 upwards at either of them.

At a windscreen fitment center other than those two, you can pay as little at 1800.
It is wothwhile to shop around.

Try Autoboyz. They did mine a few weeks ago, insurance covered it so no idea on cost but they fitted it at our house. They have stock of the patrol windows.
