We fit a lot of windows and have done for many years now. 99% of all the windows we fit are genuine VW windows.

In our opinion, they are the best finished and highest quality of glass available for the VW range of vehicles. Granted, they may not be the cheapest but they do look and fit the best. We have no financial benefit to fit either type of window and there is a misconception that VW windows don’t fit correctly - actually they do. If you do require aftermarket non branded VW glass we can supply and we will fit if required, but please read on and we will inform you of the differences.

VW vs. Aftermarket Glass – The Pro’s & Cons

VW Windows

  • The fit is perfect
  • The finish on the bevelled edges is perfect
  • The flatness of the glass as you look down the side of the van is perfect
  • The dot matrix (black edging around the window) is a few millimetres shy in the corners to cover steel edges; however a limo tint covers this
  • We strongly recommend tints for this reason
  • Factory tints are available but not always dark enough
  • Factory VW windows look nicer and don’t leak, if the seal is kept clean
  • With VW sliding windows, there is a level of skill involved in fitting them, which is why so many companies don’t like to fit them.

Aftermarket Windows

  • The fit of the window is not always ideal in terms of cut and shape
  • The flatness of the glass can often be compromised i.e. when you look down the side of the van you can see ripples in the glass
  • The edges are not as well finished as VW glass
  • They have a larger dot matrix to cover all steel edges
  • The sliding windows have the inner window panel recessed in
  • Most sliding windows have a row of small holes drilled in the glass to allow water to drain away; however they are susceptible to leaking
  • The internal look of the sliding window is not as good as the VW glass and there are no locking positions

The cheapest is not always the best.....We have seen many vehicles in which the cheapest option has resulted in damage to vehicles and a poor overall fit, so do bear this in mind when deciding.

We guarantee all of our workmanship and each window is cut out by fully trained members of staff using a range of cutting tools which will not damage your van. “There is an art to getting it right” We pride ourselves on fitting windows just as you would get them out of the factory, with perfect spacing around the window and sitting the correct distance off the van. All cut edges are treated to prevent any future corrosion and the latest window sealants are used, offering you quick drying times and perfect bonding.

We were the first company in the UK to produce custom made window surrounds for the T5 and still produce them today. This offers a great finish, removing the need for the knock on rubber gasket or trying to stretch carpet around the edge. They look great, especially if your vehicle is lined out.

Adding additional tinting to your windows is very popular and beneficial for a number of reasons.

Some vehicles have no factory privacy tint but some do. Exploria works on a lot of High Line level factory Transporter vehicles. These come with a privacy pigment already in the glass. However for many we add an additional window tinting film to the inside of the windows.

This is popular for campers wanting privacy when changing right through to business users wanting to keep tools out of view from prying eyes.

Below are just some of the benefits of tinting your windows:

  • UV Protection – protects the vehicle’s interior from fading
  • Reduces glare
  • Keeps temperatures down, making it more comfortable for passengers & animals
  • Security – darker than the factory tint, so possessions are less visible to prying eyes
  • Vision – whilst darker from the outside, passenger’s vision outwards is not affected
  • In the event of an accident or someone trying to smash the window the film will help to prevent glass from shattering everywhere

When retrofitting VW windows factory the overall finish isn’t perfect as the dot matrix around the corner isn’t big enough to cover the steel corners. When the glass has additional tints this isn’t an issue.
