Exclamation Rock Chip

So, today while driving on the highway I heard a loud crack and I immediately knew. It was a rock chip.

This one appears to be bad, going right to the sun-resistant blue resin. I was wondering what types of options I may have to repair this thing?

It's a major eyesore right on the front of the car and I am hoping to get it taken care of the right way...I do not want it to spread. The vehicle has only 5,000 miles...is this service something that might be covered by Mercedes warranty?

Not sure...Any help would be appreciated!

pretty sure they don't warranty road hazards like rocks: sounds like an insurance thing to me: that also happened to me when I had my E63 back in 2011.......I just shelled out the 1K to replace it


good luck and sorry that happened

Definitely hit an autoglass shop. They have resins which are amazingly strong and will pretty much make it disappear.

Alternatively, depending on which state you're in, it's covered under your insurance. In Florida, damaged windshields are 100% covered under a driver's insurance, NO deductible.

I'm moving to Florida! Oh, I forgot. The bugs. The BIG bugs. It rains every day--only for 5 minutes, but just enough to screw up your car wash. South Beach. No, on second thought, I'll pay the deductible and stay in California. Never mind.

Safelite repair with some sort of goo. Safelite replace with glass made by orphan children in a third world country out of recycled computers, which is unacceptable to MB when you do a lease return. Just saying.
