The windscreen replacement of your VW Up without deductible
When we talk about a Volkswagen city car, we think among other things of the VW Up! This attractively designed car is as well as the Seat Mii and Skoda Citigo part of the so-called 'Volkswagen New Small Family Platform'.
The car first appeared on the market in the year 2011. That was striking, because the first concept for the Volkswagen Up was already shown at the IAA in France in 2007. The VW Up immediately turned out to be a modest success and was mainly purchased by people who lived in a (large) city. Are you also the proud owner of a Volkswagen Up, but did you see, for example, rubble or a bird flying against your windscreen while driving? In that case, we will be happy to offer you our interesting solution for the windscreen replacement of your VW Up!
When is your windscreen replacement mandatory?
The windscreen replacement of a VW Up does not have to be done in all circumstances. In this area, for example, we make a distinction between a situation in which there is an asterisk and a situation in which, for example, a major crack can be observed. It is therefore not necessary to replace the VW Up windscreen in order to repair an asterisk. There is an efficient solution for achieving a solid end result without having to replace the entire windscreen. In some cases, however, it is necessary to have your broken windscreen replaced, for example in order to avoid disapproval of the car inspection. This is particularly the case when the damage is in the driver's field of view. In this case, a single reflection can lead to very dangerous conditions. Moreover, the risk of glare does not only apply to the occupants of the car, but also to other road users. Only a replaced VW Up windscreen can then ensure that your car is not rejected for the car inspection.
Introduction of the electric Volkswagen Up
he launch of the original version of the Volkswagen Up laid the foundation for the future. The city car did well among the target group on which it focused and so Volkswagen wanted to continue to embroider on it. This was done and an electrical version was announced in 2013. This car was to replace the original 1.0 litre 3-cylinder petrol version. A year later, the German car brand unveiled a new variant for the Latin American market. This model was built in Brazil and eventually became 65 mm longer compared to the European model. The extra space available did make it possible for Volkswagen to expand the petrol tank. This went from 35 to 50 liters.
The production process of a windscreen
Compared to a new rear or side window, the price of a VW Up windscreen is always a little higher. This has everything to do with the fact that the windscreen is not made of tempered glass, but of laminated glass. This type of glass not only consists of several layers of glass, but there is also PVB film in between. Of course, this is not just a film, but one that has an adhesive effect on both sides. This makes it perfectly able to keep the glass together in case of breakage. In addition, laminated glass is heated quickly during the production process and then cooled slowly. This gives it a considerable extra strength, which only increases the safety of the car's occupants.
The cost of a new windscreen
Ask yourself the question: 'What does a windscreen cost'? In that case, it is especially important to decide for yourself what type of car window you prefer. In this respect, you have two different options:
A new original car window
Or a car window for the after market
Do you want to keep the price of a new windscreen for a VW Up to a minimum without having to compromise on quality? Then you should always choose to buy an after market car window and have it placed. This way you always have the best value for money. This is because an after market windscreen does not have a brand logo and can therefore be sold by anyone who wishes to do so. This is not the case with an original car window. Because of trademark law, it may initially only be sold by an authorised trademark dealer.
