Original BMW Z1 windscreen

Post by Nik Rite » Sun 24 Dec, 2017 09:58

Long storey short, broke my original windscreen . BMW replaced it and did such a poor job they had to replace it again so I ended up with a practically new screen that I have no idea what its worth. I'm about to put it on ebay but i've been out of the Z1 scene for so long i've no idea what its worth! Suggestions?? I'm not looking to make a killing but I don't won't to give it away either. Nik

Lord Lucan! :wink:

Have you changed your number? Tried calling you several times earlier this year.

How the devil are you?

Alleged RRP is in the range of €700. Curious why they couldn't use the first windscreen yet its still serviceable?

Hi Guys ,thanks for getting back to me. Santa was a little busy over the last few days. Jet, my moby number hasn't changed .Thanks for trying to phone me. I get so many phone calls from window people that I rely on people leaving a voice mail if they want a chat.Is it best we PM for further chat? Someone dropped a brick off a bridge onto my windscreen so I needed a new one. I went to BMW as I thought they'd do a proper job. How wrong could I be. I ended up bringing "my solicitor" ( actually my morning running mate!) along with me to BMW to witness that I could bring the car to someone else for them to do it and BMW would pick up the charge. BMW uk did not want to have anything to do with it The screen is in its original wrapping and I haven't checked it in 5 years for condition. i'' check it next week and report back. Nik

Did it sell? One of those items that will be invaluable to someone in the future, be kicking myself if it turns out to be me :head:

I wouldn't be too worried. Pilkington and other windscreen manufacturers have the moulds for every vehicle made by a major manufacturer since the 60s. The ones that will be difficult to get hold of will be kit cars.
