* actually, I am also looking at getting sunfilm for my winshield, but I want to wait till the moonsoon is over.
3500 seems to be cheap ,but please check if its specially made for windshield.

LLumar charges 5500 and its transparent,One of my friend has it is his FIGO and its working fine in cutting the heat.Where as my another friend has fixed a light colour 3M in his swift which of no use(charge was 2500 at Ratna stickers)

If you are looking for llumar let me know

RE 70 would cost atleast Rs 7000 and this is the film which was to be used in the front windshield. Rs 3500 seems to be too low and check what category it is .

Yup, RE is cheaper than CR - and CR is the windscreen / premium film, which costs ~7000.

oh, yea RE was quoted at 3500 rs. I will enquire CR 70 (or whatever series) and let you guys know. The main reason why I am going for front glass Sunfilm is to reduce the dashboard glare.

I had Garware fitted on my door glasses and boot from the dealer. But the install was bad. There seem to be bubbles and scratches on the sun film. Initially I thought of getting it reinstalled from Balaji, but before that I called the dealer and explained to him this issue. He asked me not to worry and said he would reinstall the entire thing by today. Since I have the first service scheduled in 2 weeks time, I told him I will have it done during that time.

Navan are you talking about the CAR SPA in Tnagar or CARZ Spa in Nandanam.

Dude, Does the Llumar is better than 3M or both are equally good? My budget for front windscreen for my swift is 4k max. Can i get a good one for the price I've mentioned or need to raise up? Also heard duplicate Llumars are found on the market. Could you edify me?

Whizzkid, please also checkout at genuinecaraccessories.com - this is a shop in T.Nagar. Thw owner gives some good tips and sounds very authentic.

Please also let me know the cost for the Llumar sunfilm for windscreen. I might have to install it for my i10. My prime concern is about the visibility when it rains. *I am stupid* But I would like to ask this question.

My question is: Would the visibility be affected during rains when windscreen sunfilm is installed?

I have the the 3M CR70 for about 6 months now, and have driven through some heavy Chennai and Bangalore rains. Until now, I haven't felt any visibility problems - the only thing I noticed was that the outer side of the windshield gets mildly foggy after every stroke from the wiper. There was a thread for that, and it was generally agreed (I do too) that it is not due to the sunfilm, but due to the AC / inside temperature of the car being way cooler than the outside. Infact even those without the front sunfilm reported the issue.
