Has anyone had any cracking of the windshield in their XKR/XK8 convertible? I had mine replaced at 14,000 miles. It was not the result of an impact (rock) and so the dealer replaced it under warranty. But I am concerned that it could recur...Any thoughts??

I and 2 other friends own XK8 convertables. We do not drive on daily basis. We found nothing wrong with the windshield so far. I have 14,000km on my clock. <p>I had a bmw 540i, after driving for a year or so I discover waves on the windshield and they changed it for me under warrantee.<p>Cases like these are most probably manufacturer's defect from the glass factory but could not be detected until it happens.<p>Inspect your new glass thoroughly for any uneveness is the only action you can take now.<p>W.C. <br>
