well it finally happened, the delamination of the windshield on my cq progressed to the point that when moisture got in between the glass and urethane then froze overnight cracking the glass badly, now im on the hunt. i understand the situation us cq owners are as far as windshields are concerned, and as of now my car is no longer street legal due to the crack in front of the drivers view, do we have any options left?

Anton C. was looking into this about a year or so ago.

Best I can offer is be on the look out for Cq as well as Cabrio glass. I'd call a local dealership and get the proper PN (see if the dealer network has any by miracle) and use that at local glass shops.

CQ is unique to CQ, Cabriolet wont fit

Isn't there a company in the UK making new windscreens that have demister grids built in, for motorsports?

They're a little pricey at around 1000 UKP plus shipping.

Might be worth asking again, cargo is moving (and has been). For a while, our airline customers were only doing cargo flights...

Interesting, good to know, thanks!

I'd be interested in one or two of those if you're doing a group buy, pending price and shipping.

At $140 I’d invest in one in a heart beat.

That is before the shipping and the cost of building a crate for each one.

I got this when I tried safelite, at 480 dollars.

Your vehicle requires a part that has limited availability
We can secure an appointment for you today, but Safelite may call to reschedule if additional time is required or if the cost to acquire the part is higher than what we previously estimated.

Maybe if we all call Safelite to ask for a new windshield, they might import some from Europe based on perceived demand.

That's brilliant.

We would want to stagger the calls too, so it didn't seem coordinated.

i setup an appointment for windshield replacement on a cq with safelight

I paid $512 with installation, home service.

Agree.
I filled out the online request, then saved my quote/appointment right at the point when I pick a date/time. Now I'm getting emails reminding me how easy it is for Safelite to come fix my windshield, and for a $15-off coupon, so I'm definitely in their system. :D

How did it go? (If it happened lol)

For anyone looking for Cq windshields, contact Thomas Janzen on FB.

He's importing two TUV approved versions from Germany soon.

One version is lightweight and saves ~ 4.5kg, the other is as OEM.

Seeing as he's in central Canada, it might make sense to form a USA-based cadre and centralize shipping to a mutually agreed upon point then individuals pay their own final shipping from there.

I'm jealous of how cheap everything seems to be in the States.

Any word on pricing from Dave?

If you think that's cheap I saw someone pay $40 for a brand new audi coupe windscreen a week ago. They are still out there if you look.

The local Audi dealer thought I was delusional, but there it was in his receiving area: A stock CQ windshield I ordered on line through the dealer's website. Yea, it cost real $$$ though. One of the many stupid things I did to that lovely CQ I sold for a song and saw immediately sold on BAT for 12 Grand.

So would people pay for quality windscreens?

Brand new Pilkington windscreens direct from the UK imported into America on the west coast for $1000 each for coupe quattros.

Ur quattro windscreens are also available brand new.

This is not me importing them but I know who is. They are better quality than the remanufactured ones with heater elements in that have been advertised.
