The C220 has an original Mercedes windscreen which has stone chips and in quite poor condition unfortunately.

Coast Star Gosford apparently do have a genuine Mercedes front screen for $275.

I would have to drive the car to the Dealership 1hr 15mins each way plus the cost of fuel and the cost to have the screen fitted.

I would like to have a new original screen but a long way to go about it and $273 from Mercedes does it sound to good to be true?

O’Brien glass did quote $780 for a front screen.

Novus Autoglass Newcastle’s quote is $295 supplied & fitted the job can be done here at home.

I just wonder if the Novus screen would be good quality?
It's a no brainer Tim,

Take the day off and spend most of it in Gosford.
It's your best bet.
Or, go for the drive, buy the screen from Gosford and bring it home.
Then, at your leisure, get a local fitter to do the job for around $100.
