The Crack!

As I mentioned in my previous post, Black Mamba's windscreen was cracked during the Pasir Gudang track session last year. It was just a small hairline crack but since it wasn't treated right away, the crack grew damn long one day after my brother left the car under the sun for hours haha.

Since the windscreen is insured, I made full use of it with a claim. Took the workshop 3 days to get the glass. Unfortunately it isn't Japan made..coz if I were to get OEM Honda windscreen, I would be forced to fork out another RM2,500 and have to wait another month for it to arrive. So, China made glass worth RM1,500 is good enough. After all it is also double-layered.

Check out the size of the crack.

The replacement glass

Made by Fuyao Glass Industry. Apparently they are the OEM supplier for Cadillac, Audi, Peugeot etc.

Oh by the way they didn't install the side panel properly so it flew off @ 120kmh. What a letdown. Had to go back and get them replaced with a new one worth RM350 a piece (!)

Pity you bro, I didn't expect windscreen to be that costly. Golf original should be sub RM1.8k...
