Windshield replacement cost

Model 3 reservation holder here and just trying to estimate the costs of owning one. A cost I assume that will be significant for me will be the windshield since the car will be used for highway travel 90% of the time (40k km annually), in Edmonton, AB, where a bunch of sand (and rocks) are always on the road. Our current vehicle, we have to replace the windshield every 2 years. Currently a normal windshield replacement for our vehicle is only $250-300 CAD.

Has anyone replaced their windshield? If so, is it around $1500 USD? What's everyone's thoughts on aftermarket windshield options becoming available once hundreds of thousands of model 3's are on the road? Think the price will drop significantly?

I would think it would be just a little more than the average price since it's a big piece of glass. Not sure about Canadian companies but Tesla recommended using Safelite sicne their service center is pretty busy.

$916 USD. I got one quoted recently from service center. It also has defroster in front of the cameras which is going to add to the cost over a regular piece of glass.

I would say 4-5 times the cost of a std windshield.

Hi Rhaekar, so does Safelite already have windshield replacements for the Model 3? Is it a lot cheaper?

I didn't have to do it myself, I was just asking for a friend since I was already at the service center. Safelite just orders it from Tesla and installs it. My windshield was replaced by Tesla under warranty. I had a small streak in between the panes of glass.
