That’s a fancy Starbucks 

If you can afford a GT3, you can afford a $10 latte.

Kinda cool to see airflow around the car made visible by the salt spray from the roads. It’ll get washed soon

Did this happen while you were operating the door or was the glass already broken?

There is a bit of an issue with headlight theft with the S80/V70/XC70 (and also the S/V60 & XC60). Window gets smashed, bonnet gets released and 30sec later the car has no headlights.

Broadly speaking the pattern and location indicate some sort of impact near the middle of the window. Because of how the glass is attached to the scissor mechanism - by two rubber lined clamps that get tightened onto the glass - a failure caused by overtightening would cause cracks to appear from below the window belt line.

As far as replacement windows go you have three options. Any front S80/V70/XC70 window from any of the model years will fit.

1) Standard window glass

2) Standard window glass with rain repellent coating

3) Laminated window glass with rain repellent coating

It was broken when I went outside. No sign of impact, nothing in the car touched, nothing on the ground in or around the area of the car. I still have my headlights.

it's also already fixed.
