    The side glasses for your sedan are all laminated 'flat' glass, so you do have the option to have them cut at a local shop. If you have a decent local glass shop, you might check with them and see if they do and what the costs would be? You can compare that cost to the cost of ordering the complete glass from a company such as Auto City classics (they ship the glass to you and have a good warranty against breakage unless you wait TOO LONG to report it)..

    Among your decisions will be CLEAR or TINTED, and if you choose tinted (which most people do), then do you choose the original GREEN (E-Z-Eye) tint or the GRAY. Beware of your local laws and enforcement policies against tints being too dark before you decide on the degree of tint.

    Replacing all the glass is an advantage since you have complete freedom in your choices above without being impacted by having to 'match' the glass that is left in it.

    Note: If you go to AutoCity, check if they plan to come to a car show near you (IF we ever have car shows again), as they will deliver to you at the show w/o shipping charges.

    I checked a local glass shop for the six pieces of flat glass for my wife's car. The price was higher than purchasing it from Auto City Classics so I ordered from Auto city.

    That is the second set I have bought from Auto City. I have been very happy with them and will use them if I ever do another car.
