"Broken glass shards bring luck"
For years, Volkswagen engineers have been working on the design: the right strength, the right distance, the individual adaptation to the customer. A special glass is used, which can be cut to the appropriate size without requiring too much thickness – and still has the right number of diopters. "We tested and grinded, grinded and tested – it wasn't easy, many windshields broke due to our demanding requirements. But in the end, we found the right formula," explains Waldemar Hauptek, the leading technician, "and what can I say: It was a long process, but broken glass shards bring luck!”
