    So there I was on a fine fall afternoon, got off of work early and decided to mow the grass. Everything is going smoothly until my weedeater decides to transform itself into a rock launcher.

    You guessed it. Took out the passenger side front window. It's in a million pieces but still in place.

    The question is should I go to an auto glass place or the dealer? Also, any ballpark prices on how much this is gonna set me back.

    Appreciate it fellas.

    Id say an auto glass place would be cheaper. Google some stuff and look for some prices to compare.
