I have called every glass place on the planet, there can I get a93 windshield for 200? It is a dealer only part.SilverTwin(OH) wrote:
The windshield is another prime example. The only thing different about the 'vert windshield is the built in antenae. A coupe windshield interchanges and will work just fine and can typically be purchased for ~$200.
I appreciate all the replies. There are just three reply points I'd like to make. The first is that I've come to realize I may have been operating under a mistaken impression for a lot of years. I just assumed that brand loyalty was something automakers cared about. I thought THEY thought that it was in their own interest. Now, I don't think that's the case.evildky wrote:These cars are worth more in parts than whole, while thatâ€™s true of most cars it's a much higher extreme on the Z32. If you want inexpensive available parts look for a civic, or Taurus, they made millions of those things, so parts are available and cheap, the Z32 just didn't sell well enough to have as much support.
I have spend several hours trying to locate one and myself and my local yards searches are still coming up with nothing. Maybe you can point me to one?Z31toZ32 wrote:if you spent as much time looking to get a deal on a windshield or whatever part you need as you did complaining about it, you probably would have found one for cheap
Thanks, I had tried that site but ran it through as a convertible not a coupe. No hits for a vert. We are all sure a coupe will fit right?Z31toZ32 wrote:http://account.autoglasshostin...t=w2g
looks like $230 or so.
There is a little bit of difference of opinion on whether a coupe windshield will work on a convertible. SilverTwin(OH) says a regular coupe windshield will work, but AZ 2 NV says that what you really need to use as a substitute on a convertible is a a 2+2 windshield.SBC300 wrote:

The website <http://everything2.com/title/Nissan+300ZX> says Z32 non-turbos were, in fact, sold in the US, and I seem to remember seeing some a long time ago, but I'm not sure. The TT Z32 2+2s were never sold in the US.
It seems to me that a non-turbo Z32 2+2 would be even harder to find a windshield for than a convertible Z32, so I don't really see how using a 2+2 windshield is a fix, unless AZ 2 NV is talking about using a Z31 2+2 windshield.
The dealer supplied $738.68 windshield that Progressive Insurance is paying $488.68 of the cost of for me is being installed on Thursday.
Again you can use a Z32 coupe or 2+2 windshield....... a Z31 windshield will NEVER fit.AZ 2 NV wrote:For those who think the only difference of the windshield between a convertible is the radio antenna ....sorry you are wrong.......the vert windshield is slightly longer and wider than a coupe or 2+2. Yes....... you can fit a coupe / 2+2 windshield if the installer uses more sealant..... but it is still not the same. The vert windshield is NLA from Nissan. Most people are going this route to replace.
