Common Types of Rock Chips
Rock chips come in different shapes and sizes, anything over an inch is not repairable. Meaning not just the impact point which usually originates from one of these, but the entire area in which it has spread to. Anything bigger would need a windshield replacement. So if you get one of these on your windshield bring it in to Spider Autoglass as soon as possible before it gets worse. (These illustrations are only examples, not actual rock chips)
Rock chip repairs are structural repairs not cosmetic. Rock chips are to prevent damaged glass from turning into a replacement. Don't expect it to disappear as it is only preventing it to stretch across your screen. Any chip beyond a quarter size will most likely be a replacement.

This Mercedes E63 AMG owner had the right idea and called right away before it was too late and not repairable. No point in having a nice car with imperfections. Now he can see clearly again and safely let those turbos breath.
