Our car was burglarized at the local gym last night. They smashed the passenger window. Does anyone have an idea of how much I am looking at to have it repaired by MB? I'm waiting fo rthem to open so I can call, but I'd like to have an idea to start. Thanks in advance.

Just got off the phone w/the only 2 MD dealers w/in 60 miles and it's $120 for the glass and they have to have services call me back for labor. Meanwhile I called around and a local shop here that specializes in foreign glass repair for insurance claims can do it for $250 parts/labor.

There isn't anything special I need to consider is there?

Went with the local shop; $242 and less than an hour out the door. MB wanted $600 parts and labor. The local shop did use OEM glass (the mercedes logo and info is marked on the lower left corner).

Out of curiousity what difference does using OEM or a PPG replacement make?

Well, the tint on the glass, for one thing. A slightly different from OEM tint would not be noticeable on the front or rear windshields, but it would be glaringly obvious in any of the doors.
