When you choose an Audi Q8, you choose prestige and comfort. Chances are that you will immediately choose for the windscreen replacement of your Audi Q8 when it can no longer be repaired. A damaged windscreen is not only a potential danger while driving, it is also a thorn in the side of an Audi owner. You can keep the cost of replacing the Audi Q8 windscreen as low as possible by choosing after market automotive glass. Before we go into this in more detail, let's have a look at the Q8 itself. According to some, this is a concept car that should have remained a concept, while for others it is the pinnacle of comfort and possibilities.
The Audi Q8 is of course part of the Audi Q-segment. All techniques from the Audi A6, A7 and A8 have been adopted, unlike when setting up the Audi Q7 where all this was not used. Although the car was marketed as a 'sporty SUV', the marketing team behind the scenes soon changed the name to 'Sports Activity Coupé'. This is mainly due to the space in the boot. Because the tailgate makes a diagonal line to the roof of the car, the loading space is not as practical as is the case with other SUVs. Nevertheless, there is still more than 600 litres of luggage space.
The Q8 is also equipped with MHEV technology. This means that the starter motor and the dynamo have been replaced by an electric motor (powered by a lithium-ion battery), which reduces the consumption of this diesel by between 10 and 20 percent.
The many possibilities of the Audi Q8 are very diverse:
That the Audi Q8 would be placed above the Q7 was clear from the start. That the Q8 would be € 20,000 more expensive than the Q7 with the same engine and would exceed the € 100,000 limit, that was a surprise for many.
The Dutch driver was not convinced by all the luxury and comfort. At the beginning of April 2019, the sales counter was just over 100 units in total, since the car was launched in the Netherlands. In Germany the Q8 doesn't do much better. In 2018, 2268 models were sold, and at the beginning of April 2019 the counter is at 931.
This contrasts sharply with other models in the Q-segment. Audi sold more than 5000 models of the Q3 and more than 8500 times the Audi Q5. This makes the Audi Q8 seem to have never really outgrown its status as a 'concept car'. In addition, the Audi Q8 seems to compete with the Audi Q7 itself.
In the case of an asterisk, the windscreen of your Audi Q8 doesn't need to be replaced. Often repair is still possible, as long as you have it repaired on time. When it comes to greater damage or a crack in the driver's field of vision, then it becomes a different story. Your Audi Q8 won't be able to get through the MOT anymore - and driving on is unsafe. When bright light (such as sunlight) reflect into the crack in the windscreen, the driver is quickly blinded. The car window replacement is the only right option if you want to make sure that you can continue driving safely.
You can replace your Audi Q8 windscreen yourself if :
Ordering an Audi Q8 windscreen without installation is possible with us. However, it is not advisable to replace the windscreen of an Audi Q8 yourself if you have no experience with this.

Saving on the cost of a new windscreen for an Audi Q8 is easier than you think. Especially if you have a third-party, fire and theft or comprehensive car insurance. In that case it is possible to replace the car window without paying any deductible if you choose our certified partners. If you have a standard third-party car insurance, the costs for window damage are not covered.
Even in that case, you can make sure that the costs for the windscreen replacement of your Audi Q8 do not exceed the ceiling. You really don't need a brand glass from your dealer. The brand mark on the new windscreen doesn't do anything at all, except ensure a higher price. If you choose after market automotive glass, you choose a car window that meets exactly the same requirements as the car windows at the Audi dealer. However, the price is much lower because you do not pay for the brand logo.
