So last night a fight breaks out in front of the club. It was 5 on 2, and I was 1 of the 2. 2 of the guy shoved my friend through my drivers window. Long story short...... the guys took off and cops came flying around the corner and went after the car taking off. So after an hour of sorting out the stories the cops determine that no one is going to be charged. I get the short end of the stick, a broken F***'ing driver's window........

So my question is, how much am I out?

I drive a 1996 328is

Just made my stomach hurt when I read $500. If I'm going to pay $500, I might as well file a claim with my insurance company and get my window as well as the "keyed damage" to my paint (caused 3 months ago) done all at once.

I'm at work right now with a bump on my temple.

Anyone else recently replace a driver side window?

you might be able to find one froma junkyard, if the body style is the same then the windows should be the same. down here in Pensacola, a window is $20, done know if there are any e36's down here but you might check the internet for one.

Well, it wasn't too bad $150 bucks for a brand new window. However, the place said any future BMW that comes in is going to be charged $300, like most places charge. They said it was the WORST car of all to have to mount the window on to the brackets. Apparently it took them 3 hours to install it.

Plus my friend is giving me $100.
