Any experiences with the cops on the sunfilms in front windscreen?
I too have done this. And yes, the cops haven't stopped me even though they have been stopping other people in whose cars you could clearly see the films. I have also left the rear wind shield film on, only removed both sides. Mind you, policing in Chandigarh is the strictest amongst all of India. So if it works here, it should work at other places too .

I could manage to take some pictures from my mobile phone today of the shabby work done by Whitefield Honda.

And in case it hasn't, then what exactly are most of us waiting for since we not removing the films?

This is really bad!

Don't let it go, ask them to get the rubber beading replaced. The glass it also scratched? Can something be done for it?

You will receive that call (as well as a couple of other apologetic calls from the dealer).

But if my experience - admittedly of an incident which is much less damaging (if at all) than yours - is anything to go by, those calls are all you're going to get. Nothing more.

thats such a canned response,that had it been a written letter,you could have seen the pencilled "xxxxxxx" erased where the date,dealer and your name go.

take comprehensively detailed notes and pictures,post everything here.
beading and all wont be cheap, once word of company endorsed damage gets around,theyll come to you.

Premjit, Thank you. That gives me additional confidence not to remove the front windscreen sunfilm.

All I can say is Oh My GOD! Really shoddy work. I hope you gave them a piece of your mind. Have you spoken to them about any recompense for faulty worksmanship?

I did a DIY today and removed the side and back tints. I have left the front transparent film untouched. The car really looks naked, but driving back home was less stressful as the visibility has increased.

I felt bad when I saw many cars including a couple of Ambassadors belonging to the Police with a red beacon with their black tints untouched.

The biggest relief in removing the tints is that I am able to drive peacefully without the lingering thought of being stopped by a cop.

Really sad.. You could try 3M or some other place providing similar level of service. I got the sunfilms peeled off from my one month old Rapid without any damage to the car itself at 3M, HSR layout. I would highly recommend this place for those who don't want to take risk. By the way, the response from Honda looks like automated. Hope you get response from a human sometime soon and get a speedy resolution.

You can get the logo on the front film removed and leave the film as it is. So, if you have a film with 70% VLT or more it would be hard to make out. I heard that some reputed shops do this for films installed by them.

Removed my 3M RE35 from my ANHC after being fined twice in Janak Puri. Got it removed for just Rs.150 from the local car market and they did a pretty good job. I haven't removed the CR70 from the front though and it's hardly noticeable especially without the tints on the sides.

Exclamation Re: Car tints banned by HC! EDIT: Supreme Court bans all kinds of sunfilms in cars

Chennai update: For the first time last evening, saw sun-film checking while coming from Mount Poonamalle road towards Kaththipara junction. The exact location is at the new signal that has been added on the Binny road half a KM before the Kaththipara ramp.

Couple of policemen were stopping cars. There was a minor argument with one gentleman who was pointing at his rear windshield.
