No chips in mine as far as I know, at about 12.5k miles.
I've had two windshield replacements in my life:
The first was on my first car. It was replaced before I even received it. The car sadly secretly leaked, poor workmanship on the replacement, destroying the pins on one main harness inside the foot well panel in the passenger side of my W123. While I could find a replacement "EGR", I could not easily find the harness, nor find anyone willing/able to repair it.
The second was for a 2004 Toyota Sienna with an electrically heated portion near the wiper starting position. My cousin owns an automotive glass shop, and sent me one without the electrical connector/heated wiper park area. I had noticed the installer remove the connector from my old windshield, but there was no connector on the new one. I then researched a new Toyota part, and found they were over $1000 dollars, and that this was a common "theme" with Toyota windshield replacements!
Just yesterday the work on my mom's car to repair it after her accident on Oct 26 was completed. The car was done last week Wednesday, but they sent a company to replace the clear "bra" I had put. It was the first time I've dealt with this company, and the "owner" noted that they sell one to cover the windshield, as well as the headlights. I've noted recently that WeatherTech has headlight covers, but this is the first I've found a company that sells them for the windshield. He noted that Ferrari windshields cost almost $20k to replace. (It would make sense to clear bra a windshield if it cost that amount.)
I'm guessing it may cost $100 to $200 to cover a windshield. Do you guys who've had to replace them think it's worth it to clear bra? (I just thought of this, but I wonder how the wipers would work on it....)
