    Time for a new windshield. What do I need to know?

    Took a HUGE rock to my windshield yesterday not 5 miles into my drive. I remember hearing something about special instructions that need to be followed on the installation of the new windshield but I couldn’t find them through the search. I am going to have the new windshield installed at my local BMW dealer once they get the new glass that is coming from Germany. Are there any special instructions that I need to notify them on?

    Thanks,
    Zach

    Hopefully they will read the tech specs, but the Z8 window is set in a kind of silicon-rubber that requires quite a lengthy setting-drying time without the car being moved. By memory I think it was 48 hours, but I can't be 100% sure of that, but the correct setting plus curing and drying time is very important.

    Do you get an estimate from the dealer on the approximate replacement cost?
