This doesn't make me happy. I got a rock chip 24 hours after I got Little Red Rexy. It didn't make it 292 miles. I guess I am lucky that mine is not pissing oil all over my garage.

That stinks. Thankfully it should be a 1500 windshield and easily available. I got a rock chip driving my C8 back from the dealer on the first day at around 70 miles. 4-6 month backorder :(. Rocking a massive crack right across the middle of the windshield.

I had a terrible streak where I had 4 cracked windshields in the 2018 in 3 months from 3 different cars SMH. Haven't had one since knock on wood

I do $200 collision but almost never use it r under 5-10k. Wasn’t worth the carfax hit on high end cars. Supercars especially. You are talking a 50k loss in value most times

I know that world well and the hits. All my friends have the Italians and I choose to stay with my dream car as a kid (gen 2 viper). I’m usually the cheapest car in the group but the most horsepower.

Nice paganis. The zonda is still my fave.

if I had pagani money I’m buying either a k-egg or mclaren hypercar.

pagani makes stunning cars but the interiors are too much for my taste

You know. I try to explain to people that while the hypercars are fucking amazing. Price does not mean they are better. Just different. I have a friend with all the hypercars and a large porsche/classic collection. He’s just as happy driving a 3rs as ge is the 918 or pagani. They are just different and special in their own way

What area are you located in. That red carbon pagani looks really familiar

Awful luck. I keep a $100 comprehenaice deductible for this very reason. Jeep needs new glass about every 10K miles.

Perhaps the same as the 1500 but is there any recalibration of the LKA camera?

good luck, let us know the replacement cost.

I asked my PPF guy and he said the tech wasn't good enough yet.
Have you used one that you recommend? How long is it good for? This would need to be good for freezing Temps and snow/slush.
