While My Car Gently Weeps

The Mini has a cracked windscreen, and I've been putting off having it replaced. I don't want to replace it myself because it's a dirty job, and it's been fifteen years since I did this kind of work. And I know all the problems that might occur:
The new windscreen might not fit. The mouldings may not fit back in place. The seal may leak. The paint may be scratched. The pinch-weld may be scraped down to the metal, and then not primed. The installers might use butyl instead of urethane.

Jalopnik has the story. The comments echo my concerns.
