Here are few reasons why the price of windscreen replacement in Sydney varies so much.
Original or Aftermarket
When replacing such an important piece of your vehicle such as your windscreen, you need to ensure the replacement glass exactly meets the specifications of the vehicle. You have two options here. Choose the original replacement part which can be obtained directly from your car manufacturer or choose an aftermarket option.
The prices between the two can be up to 50% difference so again hard to give a range of costs. However if installed by a qualified professional there should be no difference in performance and safety.
Size of Glass
As there are so many vehicles on the market of varying sizes, so too windscreens are not all the same size. Obviously a larger vehicle requiring a larger windscreen is going to have a higher cost for this part as there is more material in the item. Also a larger glass piece can be more difficult to install so the job requires more time, skill and other materials. All of these add to the higher overall cost of replacement.
Windscreen sensing technology requires smart sensors to be built into the glass. This advanced technology increases production cost and as such a windscreen with rain sensors costs more. If your original windscreen had this technology you may choose for the replacement glass to not have this option to save costs.
