Depends on how deep the scratch is. A lot of windscreen joints can polish it out (get them to have a look) - but it may be cheaper to source a good second hand one from a wrecker.

Re: window scratch

You can buy a special tool and paste to do it if it's not too bad and even for deep scratches. Go here http://www.eastwoodco.com/ and hit the plastic and glass repair link. Aust paint and panel suppliers sell similar gear but it would be cheaper to buy a secondhand glass if you can.
