    Windshield Replacement

    Has anyone replaced your windshield? I have a massive crack in mine and I have a safety inspection coming up. Local glass shops are telling me their are no aftermarket windshields made for the ILX. My local Acura dealer wants over 700! any help you can provide would be really appreciated.

    my insurance covers windshield replacement with a 100$ deductible. Is that not an option?

    Thanks, I just confirmed my deductible is 500 regardless. Apparently some states have different values for glass but VA is not one of them.

    Yea it sucks for new models. I mean the OEM ones are usually better quality anyways. But they are super expensive.

    Do you have to replace it or can you just get the crack treated?

    It doesn't surprise me that no windshield company has the windshields in stock yet. It will be pricey. Usually windshields cost around 300-400$

    Thank you all for the replies. I don't have an inspection for another 2 months so hopefully the prices will go down. My crack curves but it is about 3feet long so their is no patching it. I will be happy if I can find it for under 500 .
