      Pity the roadster windows aren't the same as the Coupe as there are a couple of lads on zroadster site that are always breaking cars.

        Thanks Dave.

        It’s a bit scary to think a broken side window could put the car out of action.

          Yes its not good. I wonder if Pilkington or similar will offer glass in the future?

            Can’t remember which program it was either Wheeler Dealers or Cars SOS (maybe the Classic car refurb show fronted by that Welsh guy) but they went to glass windscreen manufacturing firm somewhere up here in North East where they made a replacement windscreen from scratch for a classic car. Maybe someone on here remembers about it.
            Of course it won’t be cheap but something like that might be the only option.

                MasterMiller it wouldn't harm to give them a ring to see if they could help in any way.

                  I would rather have original even if scratched BMW glass than reproduction glass which will never be 100% the same colour.

                    I would agreed with you, however it depends on the situation really if the glass is damaged/broken and it renders the car unusable as mentioned earlier in the thread then it maybe the only option if OEM glass is not available.
                    Looking on the site I use for checking spare parts the item looks to be still available. Taken the details from site and put below:-

                      Thanks Pete,

                      Both windows are just scratched. Im not sure if it’s because of particles of dirt inside the door/ seals which have scratched them over time from putting windows up and down. But I only really noticed them after I’d had the car detailed a few years ago and the detailer subcontracted a dent guy to take out a couple of car park dings. I suspected maybe hes caused the damage but not sure.

                      Anyway I can live with it, and if bmw do still have both windows available that’s great, just not cheap.

                      Like you said the custom glass would certainly be better option than a bin bag if a window was broken. I have no plans to sell so if the custom glass colour was a bit off I wouldn’t mind.

                      Cheers

                        Worth checking with your local dealer as I believe at least one side of the door glass is NLA

                          Checked with my dealer and left side is NLA (015) but they have 43x 016 in Germany. I bought both sides about 12 months ago and paid around £280 plus vat each side but not sure if they have gone up since.
