    noticed today and pretty sure it's brand new. Vin 101xx. I've heard about glass roof cracks due to stress but didn't see any references to chips. Anyone else had this and resolved it with SC? What happened? Any help is appreciated.

    Ouch! I’m assuming this is from a rock impact?

    That's what I'm thinking. Question is, how to save the rest of the glass roof.

    I have two small chips on the sides of my glass roof. I’m fairly certain it was delivered like that a week ago.

    Oh yeah. I should clarify they are nothing like the OP’s chip. These are just slight rough edges unlike the rest of the roof. Hopefully they don’t lead to cracks is all.
