scratched inner windshield

Hey guys I was washing my windshield yesterday when my ring hit the glass and left a nice fine scratch about 6 inches long right at eye level on the drivers side. It is not really detectable with a fingernail but it bugs the hell out of me... not to mention its a 2013... I have heard of a TON of different scratch removers but my only concern with trying them is that this scratch is on the inside and I believe windshields have a factory laminate or tint on them??? Could someone give me some guidance on what to do?

regards

You're really out of luck, unfortunately. There is no glass polishing that I would recommend for a vehicle. Reason being, that once you polish glass, it distorts it. You're better off with the scratch than you are the distorted glass, especially in your line of sight.

Price out a new windshield, most aftermarket windshields can get installed for $250 or so now days.

... ^^^ ... This happened in the cleanup dept when my wife was picking up a new Honda a couple years ago. ...

Detail guy hit the inside of the windshield with his ring ... ... and we turned the car down at delivery ... dealer ended up putting in a new windshield and selling it to another customer.

FWIW ... wife scratched big mirror in bathroom with a razor blade ... had to replace mirror.
