Funny question, but how much is a replacement front/rear windscreen, and side glass?  The reason I ask is that the insurance I'm taking out for my new VX220 has a huge difference in premium for just glass cover - £110 difference for me.

 

Many thanks!

Front screens are huge money. Over a grand for an insurance paid job. Rear screens probably similar as it's difficult to get to. Side windows are easy, plenty of secondhand ones around. I must have chucked out half a dozen

I would guess the rear screen is stupid money as I believe it’s a rear clam off job

FWIW Autoglass did my windscreen on insurance for the £75 excess - then tried to charge me the whole amount 12 months later!
But the whole amount was about 340 or so...
