Car Lounge name is Kemp on JC Road Bangalore and it cost me 7K since my BIL knew the guy closely. Hope this helps

Regarding the Sunfilms, I decided to play it safe and opted for ASFW Excel 70. My original choice was 3M but I didn't want to spend 25K and run into the risk of cops peeling it off. But I definitely noticed a difference in AC performance after exposing my car to the SUN. So chilling at the moment

Thanks anyways.
Well, good for you! I suggest you post your Sunfilm ownership experience in the forum so that others can benefit. Lots of options are opening up for people who are sitting in sidelines for a suitable film.

BTW, you are not missing anything from Honda City, save for Cruise Control. Paddle shift is a novelty, thats all. It just adds to your workload. Enjoy your Rapid and drive safe.

Thanks for sharing this in detail. Also, make sure you blur information that violates your privacy...should any law enforcer be lurking around in the forum, you will be an easy fodder.

I now wonder why is 3M or other manufacturers not coming up with 100% transparent sun-film, or they already have this ?
I was quoted 95K for PPF on my Skoda Rapid by 3M. Ridiculous!!!

Regarding the sun film, I seriously doubt it provides 80% heat reduction. Even the best film from 3M, CR70 & RE70 claim 55% & 45% reduction respectively.

What's the cost 4M quotes for these? If it is anything less than 25K, I assume its fake.

Anyone know how is the CR90 from 3M? I was asking for this particular film from the local 3M shop but they don;t seem to have any stock of these. I plan to put this on the front windshield only. I am not worried about the sides as I use those sticky shades sold in the traffic signals.I must say, they are quite handy.

I thought any kind of sun film i.e. any degree of transparency is illegal.
So how are companies like 3M allowed to sell and apply the sunfilm then?

According to this website sun-film was never legal.

http://lawgic.info/the-law-on-tinted...cars-in-india/

How much will it cost to replace the car glasses with tinted ones? They're legal apparently.

With the raising temperatures in Bangalore, it is getting difficult to drive the car in the afternoon. Car gets heated up fast and becomes oven when parked in the open. Was looking online for some alternative for sun films (as the black screens sold on the traffic signals are of no use) and came across brica sun shades here: http://epitstop.in/Sun-Shades-catid-166740-page-1.html

As i have not heard about this brand of sun shades, it would be good to hear from the forum members about their experience with the brica brand of sun shades. So if any one has used/brought them? can you kindly advise if they are worth buying? comments on the pricing is also welcome.

cheers

There are several types of such rollup shades that have come up in the market now. For starters, it is not a best fit for many cars. For e.g. when I enquired about such a shade in local accessories for my elantra car, they didn;t have one which fit exactly. Secondly this type of shades need to be screwed into your window sill. I am against doing any drilling into my car even if its a very small hole. You can try to find this in your local accessory shop to see if they fit well in your car.

Hi Guys ,
I have seen few cars with Venetian blinds , they block the direct sunlight without impacting the view. I really like it but unfortunately i am not able to get any details on net or near by shops.

Please let me know if you know any sellers for these .

I found some selling on Amazon but its delivery only in UK.

Unfortunately, available only in Hyderabad right now. Anyone from Hyderabad here got any reviews of this product?

Seriously considering driving down (or up?) there just to get this done.

Hello..
Has anyone seen this, this looks like a good option

http://shopping.rediff.com/product/c...315|best_deals

This should not be against law as we can take it down as and when required. However from the picture and description I could not make it out.

Removal of sunfilm is a pain with all that glue it leaves behind, but these temporary vision blockers can be removed easily. That's the only difference.

You will get fined for anything that blocks the line of eyesight.
So the cop will charge you 1000 bucks(if you are in Hyderabad) & ask you not to put them up again.
Drive down a little more & you'll put them back on.
Next cop again stops you & charges another 1000.

All these methods are useless. I got all sunfilms removed except the one on the rear shield. Was worried about the defogger lines.
Anyone here who left the sunfilm intact on the rear glass & has peace of mind?
