They've had the panoramic windscreen as an optional extra on the Megane for year's... No fooker takes it though as it is like £600 extra and aint really much use.

Hardly an invention?

do you reckon in a crash you can travel further and higher
than ever before.

It is a good invention for truck drivers,
because even when its raining they can see a bit of skirt.
No need to wait for sunny open top days.

they have a blind on the interior tho mark, that the driver can puul over that gives the feeling of a normal roof. And they are a £600 optional extra, but to replace one, from what i have been told, costs in the region of £1500 to £2000 !!! omg

Mind you most policies that include windscreen cover have summit in the terms and conditions along the lines of a maximum of £350 plus the excess for a windscreen replacement... so it wouldnt be covered for much even if it was...

The best thing from all aspects is therefore, not to get one raftl
