Are you driving a Land Rover Range Rover? Then the chances are very small that you will use the full name of the car when talking about your Range Rover, because that's the name that's used. The different generations are known as Range Rover Classic, Range Rover P38 A and the L322, with of course also a hybrid version. And of course, on all models, windscreen damage can mean that the windscreen has to be replaced, which is not cheap with the Land Rover Range Rover.
Before looking at the cheapest way to replace the windscreen on the Land Rover Range Rover, let's take a closer look at this model, which has a long and, above all, special history. At least three car manufacturers have been involved in the different generations.
The first version of the Range Rover was launched by Land Rover in 1970. The model was named Range Rover Classic and had to be a more luxurious version of the Land Rover models, which had the reputation of being workhorses without comfort or luxury. The main difference for the Range Rover models was the four-wheel drive, spiral springs and all-round disc brakes. In 1996, 26 years after its introduction, production ceased. Not because of disappointing results, but because Land Rover had already introduced the second generation of the model to the market in 1994.
The second generation was badly needed. Range Rover should be the more luxurious line of Land Rover, but the first generation of the Range Rover clearly came on the market under the Land Rover Discovery and of course that was not possible. That's why the second generation was fitted with a modified V8 engine from Rover, more premium options and EAS (electronic air suspension) to increase comfort significantly.
The third generation of the Range Rover was made under the BMW flag. And the Germans were not satisfied with the quality of the previous versions, which was simply substandard. That's why a substantial budget was set aside to further develop the technologies and to make adjustments to the model. A lot of attention was paid to the suspension, which now had five different positions, and a new gearbox (fully automatic five-speed) was added to the Range Rover L322. BMW also brought LED lighting to the Range Rover for the rear brake lights.
In 2007 a number of changes were made. New engines with less emissions, new gearboxes (again) and a dashboard that does meet the modern requirements. The standard version (HSE) of the Range Rover L322 has not become popular, the more expensive versions did sell well.
Of course the next step was the hybrid version of the Range Rover. But things went wrong here, so this was never the ultimate success. First of all, the model failed in Scandinavia, because CO2 emissions are above 60 grams per kilometre, which means that the full weight of the road tax has to be paid. In addition, the purchase price is higher than that of competitors such as the Volvo XC90 T8, the Mercedes GLE 500 E and the Audi Q7 e-tron when the option packages are taken into account.
In case of windscreen damage, the location and extent of the windscreen damage should be considered. Rejection at the car inspection is most common when the damage is in the driver's field of vision. Driving on is not allowed if this is an asterisk with a diameter of more than 20 millimetres or if there is a branched crack.
Without the right insurance, the cost of windscreen replacement can be considerable. The brand dealer only offers automotive glass with a brand logo. This logo does nothing for the car window. It only ensures that other suppliers are not allowed to sell these windows, so that dealers can charge a higher price than necessary for the car window replacement.
If you choose after market car windows, then the prices are much lower. This has to do with the lack of the brand logo in the window, which makes the costs much clearer. You can also buy a car window online: within a few minutes you have ordered a new windscreen with or without installation and you will receive it within three working days. Of course, the windscreen can be replaced on-site by our certified fitting partners.
Would you like to replace the windscreen without any deductible? We can often waive the deductible when this is up to € 150. Are you unable to use your car insurance at all because windscreen replacement is not covered?
