New windshield needed.

Where is a good place to buy a new front windshield?

The place with the best price in my area was Glass Doctor. Are there any Glass Doctors near where you live?

You can also find one online for decent price, but you have to add shipping and then you have to worry about it getting broken.

You should be able to get a quote from

https://www.smithandsmith.co.nz/

They have offices in New Zealand and are owned by the same company that owns Safelite auto glass. Safelite said that SmithandSmith should have or be able to get you a windshield for a 2010 Camaro (even if they have to get it from Safelite).

SmithAndSmith's number in New Zealand is 0800483388

Good Luck

Not sure on the Smith and Smith Co. but since there owned by Safelite, I'll throw this out there. Last go round, Safelite tried to install an offshore Chinese windshield for me. Made them take it back and get a GM one. Installer tried to tell me they have no control over what they get. I don't know if that's true or not, but they did find me an OE windshield the next day. Make sure you specifically ask for a genuine GM replacement if that's what you want.

windshield

I got a new one last month. Got into a accident with a cement truck. Passed him and he shot a stone right thru my windshield.

Im sure you know, but make sure you tell if you have a HUD because you can get a regular for $500 or so but with a HUD its going to be close to $1000
