I might be getting an 80 series that needs a windshield, among a lot of other things, but was wondering if anyone had a reliable glass company near Long Beach, CA that is capable of doing this job correctly. I would do it myself as I used to do windshield replacements at the independent BMW shop I used to work at but I’m wanting insurance to pick up the tab.
Thanks for the tip. I'll try and get insurance to use them when I'm ready if I get this 80 series.The auto glass whisperer in Socal

He did my new OEM glass and gasket a few years ago. 100% legit.
Is OEM glass available? I know at one time the availability was in question. I think the last piece of OEM glass for an 80 I used was $1100, but that was in 2014'ish?
OEM glass is NLA.IIRC last time it was discussed earlier this year all color options were NLA.
However there are many sites online that still list it as being available and some say Not For Sale. On the other hand my local dealer said early this year (2022) that all color options had been discontinued.
IDK, maybe a few of us could call our local dealers to confirm??
