    Unhappy Alto VXR Windshield Blast

    Alto VXR Windshield Blasted in really small pieces, dunno what happened!!! I parked it along side road and it happened!
    Any suggestion for the best place to get the replacement screen and how much it will cost me? should I go for the 'Gas Glass' or the other one!
    Thanks in advance

    Try to get the tampered/laminated one because the cheap ones wont be safe.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    SAme here...

    @Poster: the blast thing means your car had sub-standered wind shield not the original one.
