SC ruling is copy paste of California state rules. Also
Rule states - no black film. This should no dark film. (even blue can also Dark)
Rule states - Visual light transmission. This should be Visibile light transmission.

I have an alternative to sunfilms: Helmets! Black color helmets! During daytime, we can pull down the visors to block the sun. I don't know about any rule that says you can't wear a helmet inside a car. Imagine a car full of people wearing black helmets going merrily. The traffic cop would be

Some one is then very likely to come up with an interpretation that such people are terrorists -- there is no reason why a person inside a car should/ would wear a helmet. Esp in an environment where they dont even want to wear a seat-belt.

Summer is back and it's a hell to sit and drive around in the car during the day while the sun is having its day
It's so challenging to drive with a baby inside.
I hope someone will come to our rescue and free us drivers of this anarchic rule!

You would sweat inside the helmet, even with AC turned on. That would worsen the problem my friend, it won't solve it.

Ha ha.. Cant stop laughing... May be you would have a police convoy behind you and trying to arrest you as a terrorist. By the way i heard some cars would come with tinted glasses. Does that not come under illegal act?

I had tried it a few years back. Not as comfortable as you'd like to imagine.

As per the SC order, only the manufacturers can produce cars with the prescribed tint. No other alteration of any kind by anyone on the glasses is permitted. In short, if you have even your fingerprint on your car glass, it would be illegal

The reasons behind this ban seem ridiculous. There seems to be so much crime committed within the four walls of your apartment or houses, and imagine the cops say they need apartment walls to be seen through, rather than being built with bricks and cement.
Imagine the fuel being used to ensure you have the AC on during the hot summers, and the resultant pollution. Short and one sighted solution.

I don't understand why car manufacturers not coming forward with tinted glasses and provide as accessory for older cars. It's good way of making money too.

May not work on Highway drives and have to check if the set of magnets holds on rough patch roads.

After reading both your posts I ordered mine from eBay(car.n.more). Same Crab Magnetic Sunshades although for a 2013 Swift, they ended up costing me more because Groupon didn't seem to have discount codes available when I tried them two days ago. Paid Rs.1850/- for set of 4.

The magnets are strong and as you mentioned there are slight gaps & bulges on borders but overall I'm satisfied, much better than the ones you pull up like curtains and don't cover the entire window and hell of a lot better than the ones people have drilled into their side panels o.O

This is by far the closest you can get to full coverage, especially at the rear seat, unless you own one of those fancy German cars which have bespoke automated screens built-in. Another thing I would like to mention is the ability of the magnets to latch on and not come loose despite my High SPL orientated sound system that sends hard hitting vibes throughout the car.

Some pictures:

Hi Maky,

Any idea if this acceptable to cops in Bombay ? they are pretty strict on the case of sun films. I was pulled up once and fined 100 bucks for the regular sun film on my wagon R

I'm no lawyer but I'm pretty sure they have no legal grounds to fine me based on sunscreen filter which is not a film. I will absolutely update in this thread if it annoys the police.
I've seen many Sunshades in cars over the past year, fancy German cars with their factory fitted options and little i10s with after market fitments such as mine. As it's also removable, This should be of no consequence...

Guys, Please help. All around the window glass on the inside is thick plastic or aluminium trim - no metal. To what do the magnets stick?
