Re: Window Etching

Scam at worst, or at best, a huge markup by your dealer on an item that you did not request.

While it may make glass harder to sell for thieves, window etching can be had for no or low cost by third parties.

Fuggetabout paying for it.

Re: Window Etching

i refused to pay......its already done so they cannot remove iot.

later you can call the number and buy your own coverage for way cheap.

tell them PAYING for something like that is a deal breaker.

Re: Window Etching

All my cars have this etching. All the cars i am seeing today have it. I'm sure people didn't get this done after. How many have this etching and wasn't aware of the charge? I must have payed this before and didn't realize it.

NOT A SCAM!

I had my Acura stolen with window etching and yes, i did get a check, at that time it was $5000! This was in 2007. Worth the 239!

Re: Window Etching

Must be local, only one of my herd has glass with etched VINs. It is a '92 & reasonably sure were not done at the factory. In fact I am not seeing VINs on any of the normal places (doors, fenders) on the Laredo, if are more than on the VIN plate, they must be hidden.
