I'll be going through insurance, and will pay the deductible, so thinking might as well get it done at the dealer?

Dealers do glass now? I haven't heard of a dealer doing their own glass in a LONG time, its just not economical for them. They almost always farm it out.

If your deductible is less then the cost of the glass+labour why would you NOT go thru insurance?

If you compare based on dealer prices, you'll think this has to be an insurance job. If you go to a good place that does it, maybe it's less than your deductible. Not saying don't go through insurance, but if you're only looking at what the dealer and Speedy charge, you might just be assuming those are fair market rates and therefore expect to have to go through insurance and therefore have no interest in shopping around.

This is incorrect. Will a new windshield cause my insurance to go up?
If you need a new windshield and want your insurance to help ease your pane, your rates shouldn’t take a hit – if you have coverage.
“That’s a comprehensive claim and it won’t cause your rates to increase,” says Anne Marie Thomas, senior manager of partner relationships for rate-comparison site Insurance Hotline.
But, even though your rates won’t go up, there might be limits on how many windshield claims you can make. If you have too many – say, one every six months – your insurance company could raise your deductible. Or, they could refuse to pay for any more windshield claims, Thomas says.

PS - if you have lane keep assist or other driver assist technology make sure that where ever does your windshield calibrates the sensors properly! Read a news story of a guy that got his Acura's windshield done and the lane keep assist was not reset properly and kept trying to pull him into oncoming traffic!

Aslong as your are paying $300 or whatever amount as your deductible? Why do we care?

I agree that shops usually up the price for insurance claims (part of the problem with insurance premiums...) but again, if you have proper coverage glass is a comprehensive claim and doesn't effect your insurance. If your insurance company is raising your rates because of a comprehensive claim they are shitty company and you should change.

While anybody with a steady hand can remove a windshield. INSTALLING one properly so the structural integrity is as good as OEM is another story these days.talgutrie wrote: ↑ Anyone know where to order windshields and urethane?
I have to transfer ownership of the car and get a safety inspection. A large crack made the windshield needing replacement
Using a box cutter and a shifter cable, I was able to remove the sealant and freed the glass from my Hyundai Elantra, but I can't find a glass seller. IGD is only B2B.
