13. Purchasing Jaguar windshields from a Dealer or Auto Glass Shop?

We don't sell windshields. Ever. They are too heavy and too fragile to ship safely. So where should you get windshields? Not at the dealer! Usually we drive the "original equipment only" theme pretty hard, but this is one area where you can get an aftermarket part that's just as good as the OEM part and save yourself a bunch of money in the process.

For example, my local dealer quoted me over $400 for a new factory windshield for my 1985 XJ6. My local auto glass shop quoted me $135 for an aftermarket windshield. Both meet DOT regulations, both fit the car perfectly, and one is priced reasonably. The $135 windshield has been satisfactory in every way for the two years that I've had it.
