Peugeot has tried for a long time with MPV and SUV models, but the real successes lie with the 200 models. Expectations were high when the Peugeot 208 was shown as a concept car and then went into production in 2012. Should the windscreen of your Peugeot 208 be replaced? Then you can find a new windscreen at the after market for € 199.
Before we look at the possibilities on the after market, it's time to put the Peugeot 208 in the limelight. Why is this one of Peugeot's best-selling models and what makes this type so special?
It became a bit of both. It is clear that it has become the successor of the Peugeot 207, but at the same time the first generation of the 208 is already very different. Partly due to the weight that is 173 kilos less than the Peugeot 207, but also thanks to the new line of PSA design. A floating grille, LED tail lights in the shape of a boomerang have been used and the actual design of the car is much more refreshing than the design of the 207 or 206.
Typical for the new design line is the (much) smaller steering wheel, so that the driver can see the dashboard over the steering wheel. The touchscreen control system in the 208 for navigation, climate control and media is not an option, but is included as standard.
Once again, Peugeot made the model lighter, this time by 30 kilos. The car has become longer and wider, but is lower on the road. The second generation of the Peugeot 208 is available as a petrol or diesel car, or as an e-208, the fully electric version with a theoretical range of 340 kilometres.
Even before the second generation of the Peugeot 208 was launched on the market, more than 156,000 copies had been sold in Europe. This is not surprising, because the 200 line scores well by definition. In contrast to the MPV's like the Peugeot 806 and Peugeot 807, which couldn't even get close to these top sellers.
In addition, there are several sporty models made of the Peugeot 208, including models specially made for the various races in which Peugeot rides. And that probably gave Peugeot's advertising team the idea of making a very special advertisement for the Peugeot 208 GTI edition to celebrate its 30th anniversary. Attention, the content below can be experienced as shocking by traditional Peugeot lovers.
Even if you don't stunt with your Peugeot as much as the advertisers, your Peugeot 208 may be damaged. However, car window replacement is not always necessary in the event of damage to the windscreen. If we look at the guidelines of the national road traffic authority in the Netherlands ('RDW'), the windscreen of your Peugeot 208 must be replaced in the event of window damage in the driver's field of vision where
If the window damage is still limited, you can continue to drive. Please note that an asterisk or crack can increase with large temperature differences. This is for example the case when you use the heating in the winter, or the air conditioning in the summer.
On the after market there is already a new windscreen for the Peugeot 208 for € 199. This windscreen is also suitable for all types of the Peugeot 2008 because the dimensions are identical. If the Peugeot windscreen has a rain sensor, this windscreen costs € 219. This price includes VAT, but without delivery or installation.

Only when you are a car mechanic or have years of experience in replacing windscreens, you can replace the windscreen yourself. A windscreen replacement is not just a 'job' that you do on a Saturday morning. Replacing the Peugeot 208 windscreen is precise work. If this is not done in the right way, the windscreen can come loose if you suddenly have to brake forcefully. Also, incorrectly fitted windscreen may leak.

Ordering car windows online is easy and fast. But why do you choose to order an after market windscreen online? To answer that question, we first need to look at the difference between branded windows and after market automotive glass.
Branded windows can only be sold by the brand dealer, because they have the Peugeot logo. This logo provides exclusivity, but does nothing at all for the windscreen. An after market windscreen does not contain a logo, but it is made in the same way, often in the same factories as the Peugeot branded windows. And they meet exactly the same requirements, but are much cheaper because there is no brand logo present.
Ordering after market windscreens for your Peugeot 208 is the best choice because it gives you an optimal price/quality ratio.
Do you need a windscreen replacement for your Peugeot 208 or do you have a second-hand car in mind with window damage? On the after market you can already find a windscreen for your Peugeot 208 for € 199, or € 299 including delivery and fitting within the Netherlands.
