Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS)
ADAS cameras fitted to the windscreen and other locations on a vehicle allow advanced safety features such as automatic braking. They contribute to increased car, and driver, safety.
With the introduction of ADAS cameras to nearly all modern vehicles, there has been a significant rise in the cost of replacement. If a windscreen is replaced, the ADAS cameras have to be re-calibrated afterwards; with some manufacturers insisting on only O.E replacement parts and re-calibration to be completed by Main Dealers only.
When you repair, you'll save the expense of a replacement windscreen AND avoid the extra cost of re-calibration (at an average additional cost of £300.00). If you need to arrange fleet windscreen repairs, the savings are even greater.
