Got a big rock slung at my car yesterday. Loud noise and a nice little bulls-eye mark on my windshield. BTW- I was two lanes over from the truck at quite a distance and angle from him but still got whacked.
I had it repaired by Safelite but it is still quite noticeable. After the fact, they told me Tesla (and other "high-end" vehicles) use an anti-ultraviolet film on their windshields which block all the radiation but are not easily repairable (wish they'd told me this prior to repair.) The repair is strong and will not crack further but is only slightly less noticeable than before.
I called Tesla SvC for a quote on a new windshield but they did not answer, maybe closed on Saturday?
Anybody know approximately how much for a new windshield on a 2014 Model S?
