    Anyone in the Auburn area know of a good place, with a good price, to pick up a new windshield. The cold weather turned my chip into a 4' crack.

    I just went through the locals, most charge $180-200 and up. But I did some shopping and compared prices to get them to compete. There are a few things that I learned when searching
    1) First ask for the price of just the windshield.
    2) Then the price of installation
    3) Percent of tax
    4) Cost molding, most will require you to use a new one because its faster to tear apart your old one. I said mine is still good, so they didn't send one with the guy but he wanted to get to his next job so he said I'll give you the molding for free if I can cut this apart.

    Ask for the prices seperate, it just saves a few bucks sometimes because they try to charge tax on installation. The molding will come up as well.
