Chhers, guys!

The chip happened on the way home from Telford on Sunday night. I went nowhere on Monday and only did the 40 miles or so to work on Tuesday morning before getting it fixed.

It's like a small area of the windscreen is a different colour to the rest. I'd go so far as to say that the glass is slightly tinted, but the resin isn't - that's why I was wondering if they'd drilled through the athermic coating.

It's a vast improvement on the chip, and only really noticeable when the windscreen is otherwise spotlessly clean. I don't have much luck with windscreens and tend to go through one at least every 18 months or so (this car's already on its second) so maybe I won't have to put up with it for too long

Got to get mine done before the MOT. I've been putting it off, since it was done by some toerags who try to smash up all the local cars.
