my car and my GFs car were both broken into in our under ground in 3 days, then 2 days later another car in the UG was hit. i dont keep anything in my car.. all they got was the GPS, and they broke into her car to try to steal her GPS harness as mine was hard wired into the car.. window was 260$ and came with a full interior detailing.. feels bad to have your car broken into.. you almost feel dirty

most shops will replace the window just under the 300 deductible amount given that no body or molding damages are involved.

i was thinking if there was a way to prevent these windows from breaking then ALOT of windows wouldnt be needing replacing and ALOT of people will be saving $$$...

so i thought maybe what if we put some type of film on the front windows, kind of like tint film but probably something stronger.... i've never seen a tinted window break befor but i am sure the glass wouldnt shadder into 10000 peices... what do u guys think? what if we put clear film on both sides of the glass... could this possible prevent junkies from breaking into our cars? theres much benifits from this like what if we got into an accident involving the front window to get smashed, there would not be peices flying into ur face.. downfalls of this i could only think that once it breaks it would not shatter? then would block view from window while driving, but how many times will an accident like this happen that would block ur view from driving(not much)... and how many times will a junkie break into someones car(a fuckin lot of times)?? almost everyone i talked to about this has had their windows broken into, ending up paying 300 deductable to repair..

Reason why doing this is pretty much illegal is cause what if you crash into a lake or river and have to break the windows to get out. You can't kick the front windshield out. You've gotta break the front windows with a kick or sharp tool. You're done for if the front glass doesn't shatter. Same reason why it's illegal to have front tint (a long with it being dangerous at night).

Sorry, that is totally misleading information.

The only time your comprehensive deductible is $200 is when it is your windscreen that is damaged as a result of a flying object (i.e. Rock).

$300 applies to all other windows if smashed, chipped, etc.

Quote:
For windshield damage caused by flying objects such as rocks or gravel, the deductible is $200 (if you bought Comprehensive coverage with the minimum $300 deductible).

i picked up a window for my bros civic only was 120$ then i paid somebody 20$ to install it.

if you do diy make sure you take out the seal and theres NO shards of glass left if there is one, it will make your new window break lol

Why do so many people leave such valuables in the car? My car got broken into the other day but they broke nothing and got nothing either.

I would've rubbed the ice tea cans on my ass and put them back. Then I would have stalked you for two days waiting for you to drink them. When you drank them I'd laugh my ass off, the same ass that was previously rubbed on your drink. The circle is complete.

When I had my beater I always left it unlocked.. Wasnt worth getting windows smashed.. I didnt even have the deck screwed down so they wouldnt damage the center console if they were to steal it.. Luckily for the 3 years Ive had my Suzuki swift no break in's ever occured.. I even had a pretty decent deck in there too... Now that I have my corolla... I try to keep it as clean as possible so people assume its just another corolla with nothing in it... So they think :P. I love my non heatbag cars...

i dont think its realy the car that matters... its all about whats in the car, how much stuff looks like is in there, ipods, change, if it looks like the owner keeps alota shit in there they are gona smash it... the junkies just need $$$ to get high probably, unless its some teenagers, either way they are doing it for $$$... i am sure these guys use a flashlight to see whats in the car befor they smash it to make sure its worth their time..
