In the past, almost everyone had one, a Volkswagen Beetle. The car was produced between 1938 and 2003 and was popular because of its limited size and typical appearance. What many people don't know is that it was the New York Times that was the first to come out with the name 'Beetle'. Initially, Volkswagen's small car was marketed as Typ 1, 1200 and 1300. The name expressed the engine content in CC. Are you also the proud owner of a Volkswagen Beetle which you regularly use on the public road? Have you been confronted with damage to the windscreen during one of your trips? In that case, we will be happy to offer you a particularly interesting solution for a windscreen replacement of a Volkswagen Beetle.
In practice, it is very common for people who own a Volkswagen Beetle to replace their windscreen unnecessarily. This is not infrequently caused by the fact that many of our competitors indicate quite often that a windscreen with damage always needs to be replaced. If you do not do this, you could run into a disapproval of the car inspection. Is that correct? Not really. A disapproval of the car inspection will only threaten when the damage to your windscreen can be a safety problem. Replacing a windscreen with damage is therefore not mandatory if the single crack is out of the driver's field of view. If the glass damage has a branch, i.e. consists of more than 1 crack, the car will be rejected for the inspection. Is there an asterisk in your Volkswagen Beetle windscreen? In that case, the windscreen in question does not need to be replaced anyway. After all, there are other possibilities for solving this damage.
Of course, a damaged windscreen replacement of a Volkswagen Beetle is not possible without first looking for a new car window. In this respect, you should be aware that there are several opportunities on the market. We distinguish ourselves in this area:
In principle, when you replace a windscreen, you can make perfect use of both types. There is, however, a considerable financial difference between the two versions. Where an after market car window can be bought for a very attractive price tag, this does not apply to an original one. Replacing the Volkswagen Beetle windscreen with original automotive glass will therefore always be much more expensive. In fact, even if you choose to order an original second-hand car window, the cost may be higher than a brand new after-market one.
The price difference between original and after market automotive glass when replacing the Volkswagen Beetle windscreen is caused by the fact that an original car window may initially only be sold by an authorised brand dealer. This is because it has a brand logo. This is not the case with after market automotive glass. However, the fact that the price of a new windscreen for a Volkswagen Beetle is so much lower for an after market model does not mean that there is any need to surrender in terms of quality, on the contrary. Both original and after market car windows are made in the same factory and are part of the same production line. There can therefore be no price difference at all in this respect.
An after market windscreen for the Volkswagen Beetle is available for € 109, a windscreen for the Volkswagen Beetle Convertible costs € 249. If the windscreen has to be replaced as well, it costs € 209 for the Volkswagen Beetle and € 349 for the Volkswagen Beetle Convertible.
