    Default AE86 Windscreen prices - wtf?

    Anyone had a windscreen fitted to their 86 lately? I just did some calling around for quotes and got a rude shock at the current prices, cheapest I found was Novus @ $278, Instant wanted $298 and wait for it.... O'brien wanted $518, Wtf?
    Last time I had an 86 windscreen fitted by o'brien it cost me $180 (near 10 years ago) so it was a bit of a surprise when I heard the prices.......

    So anyone know any cheaper joints in Bris I can get a screen through?

    Last time I got one was around 200 about 2yrs ago. Try a smaller company that comes out to you.
    But I'm in SA.

    My dad is the manager at Autoglass warehouse in coopers plains. I asked him for a price for an 86 front windscreen for you and he said he doesnt know exactly of the top of his head, but he said it could be around $245. Give him a call tomorrow and i'm sure he can sort you out. His name is Allan. Tell him Luke sent you. haha.
