yes in deed FU.. YOU!! Rolling with laughter
Pilkington with optikool would be enough for my 11years old Disco or is it worth to replace old one with OE LR Pilkington Optikool? Possibly higher excess needed to be paid for the latter one.

Autoglass guy arrived with this!!!!

He told me it was the office who ordered the glass and it was nothing he could do. Today he placed an order for the OE LR one. He already mentioned I might pay extra for it as insurance (AXA)might not have OE screen as standard replacement part!!!!
They will contact me today when they will have it delivered and possibly fitted.

Ah, the old "your insurer won't like it" line. Check your policy documents. Many have a figure e.g. £1000 cover for windscreens. An LR screen is less than £1000 so no reason for insurer to care - Autoglass care because they'll charge a figure and then source a much cheaper screen. Hence the Chinese sounding name on the one they brought you.

Tell Auoglass to go whistle or you'll go somewhere else.

Same with me. To be fair the fuyau stuff seems to be ok. not used the heater elements yet as not been cold enough but no leaks.

my insurer (admiral) said no to oe stuff. But did promise pilkington.

allegedly the fitter was given the Fuyau stuff

Had a phone call from Autoglass and OE screen will be £575 with excess!!!!!!!!
I said find me a Pilkington Opticool glass and I will be happy. Awaiting their phonecall now.
Is it worth it to call AXA?

Update:
Pilkington windscreen without LR logo has been ordered and now I'm waiting for fitting on Friday.
This one will cost me an excess price only.
I have saved £575 Mr. Green

UPDATE:
Got Autoglass fitter to replace the screen. He did really good job. Screen is identical to LR one less the LR stamp and £570 odd price difference.
He also relocated my sticker and he made the gray plastic below the screen look black again!!
Top service.

I believe the Fitting companies are making money out of the Insurance companies, this is my tale...
Tuesday morning of this week, on my way to work an object,maybe a bird struck my windscreen and smashed it, It was half light at the time.
I rang my insurance company to make a claim, they put me in touch with Auto windscreens, who take all the details and inform me that it's doubtful I will get an OE screen...So I ring the ins co. back and complain,so they say they will try another fitting company namely National Windscreens,who happen to have a branch 1 mile from my home address.
Later a sincere sounding manager rings from National Windscreens and we discuss the possibilities of an oe screen and he also seems to think it will not be authorised but does tell me that Landrover supply them with new clips foc!!!
Still waiting for a fitting date as of today so I rang NW to be told that still no authorisation from ins co.
I ring insurance myself to be told that no authorisation needed OE can be fitted....so back on phone to NW
who say they will ring me back after contacting my ins co.
This evening NW manager rings to say that under duress the insurance co. has authorised an OE screen
And they have ordered one from Landrover that will be delivered and fitted Monday.
I think NW wanted me to accept the cheaper option, but I held out for OE.

Just make sure before it's fitted that it is the LR or the Pilkington Optikool, many of us have been told the same and and had something else when they come to fit it. Wink

AXA wanted me to pay extra!

I insisted..

With National Windscreens....they quibbled & bellyached...
But I called thier bluff & said I woul buy an OEM screen (over £600..00) available next day as opposed to thier quote of weeks.
Get them to fit it then make a claim against my policy..
Then spoke to brokers.....instant action

The screen is Pilkingtons Opticool but hasn't the got the LR logo....these only go to LR as OEM parts
 BREXIT - done properly.
Right now ...We need Government - not Politics

FL2 has DIPSTICK..."real comfort in rear seats"
VW Golf wondermobile (?)..has real DIPSTICK
Morris Minor..original DIPSTICK technology..and a real KEY.
