Audi Auto Glass & Windshield Replacement
Audi is one of the “German Big 3” luxury automakers along with Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Audi is a subsidiary of Volkswagen group ( Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, SEAT, Škoda and Volkswagen). All of Audi’s vehicles are 100% galvanized to prevent corrosion and they were the first to do so. In 2005, they introduced the LED day time running lights. Many car companies have followed the design trend copying the LED running lights or “cool Audi lights”. The A8 sedan and R8 both feature uniquely designed LEDs, with 24 individual dots inspired by the success at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Audi Windshield Replacement
Replacing a windshield on an Audi takes a highly skilled installer. They can be difficult cars to work on. the cost of a windshield replacement is similar to other luxury brands.
For instance, on the 2007 – 2010 Q7 the drivers side windshield wiper arm is made of aluminum and the wiper post is steel causing galvanic corrosion. This makes it very difficult to remove and can easily be broken if excessive force is used.You need a technician that knows these cars in and out. Also, the windshield glass is set very close to the top of the pinch-weld with an exposed edge. Removing the glass takes time and a steady hand because without a moulding across the top any scratch will be visible.
Also, on the 2008 Audi A8 when the windshield rain sensor is disconnected you can not turn the vehicle on. It will cause it to malfunction and a trip to the dealer is next to get it re-calibrated.
