Personally if it where mine I would fork out for a new screen as long as it didn't make a difference to my claims, bonus.
It is surprising the difference a new screen makes. Many screens have numerous small scratches which we tend to ignore but when a new screen is fitted Whaho - what a difference especially when driving at night

Nice work SB,the secret to a good repair is catching the chip early.I've done some repairs that were invisable when the chip was fresh,but if it is left then the repair can be still visable.

Mind you,many repairers don't understand the kit they've got and don't use it properly and even a fresh repair can be visable.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

my mate has recently got a job with autoglass, they have like less than a weeks training and are sent out on jobs prety much straight away. dont trust them all they dont do an amazing job.
I got a chip in my windscreen and i got my mate to do it. cost me 20 quid on the side which just payed for the resin to do the job with. It fixed the chip sure enough but im sure that a more experienced repairer couldve made a slightly better job. The chip is still slightly noticeable but better than a stone in the teeth i suppose.
