Default Rear windscreen - cost

Someone asked me down at Silverstone on Saturday what was the cost of my replacement rear windscreen as a few owners have screens that have started to go milky around the edge.
Looking back at my maintenance spreadsheet/emails it cost around £330.

I got it from bmwminispares :-

51 31 8399014
REAR WINDOW GREEN
£196.83
£135.81 VAT

Total £332.64

This was back in 2014 so be interesting to see what latest price is.

After talking with Dave P on Saturday not sure whether bmwminispares still sell items like this as BMW will not supply parts to them
I do still get email from them informing me parts that they get into stock for my car as they have the VIN details. Haven't bought anything from them for quite a while.

I think i paid about the same..shortly after that,i had the milky corners which was rising ! along with a few heating elements not working properly too, had it replaced along with corrective wiring....certainly makes a huge difference..

Pete
How you doing hope you are well
The vat seems wrong it’s only 20%
Should have been less than £40?

I'm fine Martin, more to the point how are you? Dave mentioned over the weekend that you have been having problems yourself, hope you are on the mend.

Well spotted about the pricing, mind it was 11:00pm and I was feeling cream crackered after the weekend at Silverstone when I remembered about the rear screen query. I just did a cut and paste from original email and didn't take in the meaning of the figures. Apologies folks.

Revised figures below.

51 31 8399014
REAR WINDOW GREEN
£196.83 RRP Ex Vat - so about £236
£135.81 bmwminispares price Ex Vat - so about £163

So I paid £163 back in 2014.

Hi Pete I’m getting there but not 100%

Never done a mile in the MC this year
Bought an M4 and I’ve only done 50mile in that
My reflexes are not 100% either so I’ve left them both till I’m sorted
As you know M cars can bite back if your not on the ball
Bought a low mileage discovery 4
And being an auto it’s easy to drive
Actually a great car and would recommend to anyone

I get the reasoning behind replacing the rear screen (milky corners) and missing demisting elements,would recomend while people are in that area to check and if required beef up the wiring coming from inside the car to the hatch as it will inevitably break,also adding a non return valve to the rear wash wipe along with SGS boot struts....seems a lot but while your there...but will keep it all nice,

If you are member of BMWCC you'll be able get 10% discount on spares at BMW dealers, unless you know someone in the trade who'd get it for you.

I got mine from bmwminispares, they still regularly sent me details on parts (seem to be all small items) against my car's VIN. So guess they maybe still doing BMW parts, if so they might be cheaper still. Give them a try. You can do all on-line.
