Does anyone know the rough cost of replacing the windscreen of a Nissan Note Acenta 57 as mine has suffered a fairly bad chip and scratch. (not sure if the scratch is actually a crack)

If you have windscreen cover on your insurance then it will be around £40 - £60 if not then the cost would run into a few hundred pounds.
Check your car insurance policy and see if you have the cover, if you have, contact your insurance provider and they will arrange for the replacement by a company they use.
If you don't have the cover then ring around and get the best quote you can. You can also get a quote from the AA and RAC even if you're not a member, which my mate did just before xmas.

To take out car insurance cover without including the screen, is just trying to save a few pence for what could be a big expense if the screen did go pop, it is becoming more common especially with todays roads and potholes.

Hopefully you have windscreen insurance as the bare screen (without fitting) is £368.00 + VAT

The last time I needed a screen I had quite a shock when I rang the insurers. I had missed the change to the excess, instead of £60 or £70 they had changed it to your normal accident excess which in my case was £250.

So I rang round the local screen companies and a one man band was more than happy to replace it for £70 if he could come within the next 30 minutes, said yes. Turned out he was going to a haulage company next door to do a couple of trucks and with me being close there was no travelling to charge.

Always worth checking.

Just wondering, is there an option for a top tinted windscreen on the Notes? When I had my BMW windscreen changed years ago, the company asked if I wanted a plain one or with a top tint, smoked, blue or green. Can't say I have ever seen a Note with a top tint, ever.

I've never seen a Note with the top tint to the screen either, unless you count the stick on type of tint.
I doubt there is such an item for the Note,it's not really a car worth the extra dosh for that kind of screen when you think about it.

The Note was built to a budget, and the E12's to an even tighter budget.
