Before we go further into the after market car windows for the Peugeot RCZ, it is time to first look at this special model that would almost not have made it to production.
The Peugeot RCZ was initially presented as Peugeot 308 RCZ in 2009 in Frankfurt. The plan was to set up a simplified version of the concept car and bring it into production, but the positive reviews of the car shows caused PSA to change its mind. The Peugeot RCZ would enter the production lines in full glory. The result: more than 50,000 units produced in February 2013, five times the 'Best Sports Car' award from Diesel Car Magazine and '2010 Coupe of the Year Award' from the renowned Top Gear.
Low front seats, a wide car and above all little space in the back seats where no adult can sit properly. But at the same time a luggage space of 321 litres (639 litres with back seats flat). Equipped with parking sensors, available in different equipment levels and especially a car with good road holding and good power. But when you think of the Peugeot RCZ, it's probably not the standard version that comes to mind first on the track.
The standard version is often compared to the Volkswagen Scirocco, but the entry price of the RCZ was considerably higher. And before we can make a comparison with an Audi TT, for example, we first have to go to those special versions of the RCZ.
There are few French cars that can come close to the Peugeot RCZ R. In fact, the critics called the RCZ R the best option because the Audi TT was difficult to control and the Mini Coupé JCW couldn't even come close to the RCZ R, where the degree of finesse was much higher.
But what could you do with an RCZ R? Actually quite a lot. The RCZ R was announced in 2012 and production started in 2013. The first models appeared at the dealers in January 2014. A 1.6 litre turbo engine, 270 hp and 330 NM torque and yet a speed limit of 155 kilometres per hour.
This means a lot of power, a lot of finishing and above all good road holding. With which you can do this (but this is not exactly allowed in most countries of course):
The Peugeot RCZ was sold just over 54,000 times in Europe. Not the success you would expect from this car, but that has a reason. The Peugeot RCZ is a very attractive car, but is not exactly a model that characterises the Dutch roads. The fact that at the beginning of 2013 Peugeot had already produced more than 50,000 copies, says more than enough. Especially since the model would remain in production until 2015. A total of 67,916 RCZ models were to be produced and sold, which is a strong result for a sporty car from France.
If you have car window damage to your Peugeot RCZ, you probably want to fix it as soon as possible because it doesn't match the look of your sports car. But if the car window cannot be repaired, then it is questionable when the car window replacement is really necessary.
The Dutch national road traffic authority (RDW) is clear about this. The windscreen of your Peugeot RCZ should be replaced when there is an asterisk with a diameter of more than 20 millimetres or a branched crack in the driver's field of vision. This is for one obvious reason: windscreen damage in the field of vision distracts while driving and incoming light is reflected in an unpredictable way by a crack or star in the windscreen.
Is the window damage still limited but is it in the field of vision of the driver? And is a car window repair no longer an option? Then keep an eye on the extent of the window damage. In case of large temperature differences or vibrations, the window can tear further, which makes it suddenly disapproved and you are not allowed to continue driving the RCZ.
For € 279 you already have a windscreen for the RCZ. This one has a green tint and is soundproofing. Would you like to have the windscreen with rain sensor, then the price is € 299. This is much cheaper than the windscreens at the brand dealer and usually even cheaper than second-hand windscreens for the Peugeot RCZ.
Optional fitting on-site
€ 100.00 (NL) - € 130.00 (BE)
This has everything to do with the brand logo. A windscreen with brand logo can only be sold by the brand dealer and therefore has a higher price. The after market car windows do not have a brand logo, but are manufactured in the same way and meet exactly the same requirements as the PSA windscreens. Are you looking for the best value for money? Then you will always find after market automotive glass.
If you are not sure, the answer is always no. Replacing the car window yourself is only possible with a side window for your Peugeot if you are not a car mechanic or specialist. The broken windscreen must be replaced by a specialist because:
Our certified fitting partners can replace the windscreen of your Peugeot RCZ within three working days. If you are in a hurry, we can replace the windscreen within 24 hours at your home or on location for a small extra charge.
Are you a car mechanic or garage owner? Then the new Peugeot windscreens can also be ordered without installation. If you wish, you can even pick them up from us in order to save even more on costs. Practical when you need several car windows at once.
Do you have a Peugeot RCZ whose windscreen needs replacing? Or do you have a second-hand car in mind, but you do not want an RCZ with window damage? In both cases you can go to the after market, where you already have a new windscreen for € 279 for your Peugeot.
