Drove around Paradise and Begumpet the other night and on the NH9 between Bowenpally and Nizampet X Roads yesterday evening. There were cops for other reasons (all over the news), but no one was interested in sun film. The film on my father's Indigo is from 3M and is much darker than the RE35 I have on my car (and for which I was caught in Gurgaon). So it is definitely either SP20 or CS20, but didn't attract the cops' attention.

How I wish I had never relocated to Gurgaon.

First time I got the aftereffect of removal of sunfilm. Yesterday, I was returning from Tirupati to Bangalore with family and guests. Just after Kolar one KA-05 registered Swift overtaken me. Their windows were completely down and ours were full up with AC one. I removed sunfilm from my Safari a fortnight ago.

Wife was sitting in passenger seat and guests were at back. Some 4 - 5 young goons were in Swift. They started making indecent gestures towards us and sometimes they were slowing and overtaking again and repeating same thing.

I do not remember, I did anything to them but they were self provoked. I made up my mind to go to any extent to protect my family. Some, three - four times they did it to us and then they stopped somewhere for loo-break.

I was feeling so helpless on that NH-4 highway I could not explain it. Anyway, we reached home safely but left the bad taste on our mind about his journey.

I agree with what Anuj has experienced. I removed the film on my figo last saturday and I am not happy. I had a Garware classic which is so very mild however had to remove it with utter sadness.

The films cameout however when i saw closly, there was a trasnsparent film still stuck to the windows. To remove this is a pain. I am still working on it and will post the pictures sshortly.

Today I had to attend a function and on way back peeping toms were staring at the car an experience I never had when the tints were on I had to keep telling my 6year old son to sit properly and behave as people were staring. Not really sure why people do that.

So you are upset because the cops in GGn enforce the law more strictly than the cops in Hyd?

Yes.

As to which cops enforce the rule better, Rule 100(2) was around before May 4, and cars with darker tints on their glasses gambol around happily in front of the Sec. 51 PS even now.

The fine for unnecessary/prolonged honking in Gurgaon is INR 1000 for the first offence. Enforcement my foot!

I also observed a few focussed stares, specifically at signals, which was making my wife uncomfortable on Saturday evening. Here is my solution

1. Clean the glass using whatever is your normal method and dry completely
2. Apply Silvo silver polish ( it comes in metal bottles similar to Brasso)
3. Allow to dry completely
4. Polish with soft cloth. The polish becomes a powdery substance and you may have to dust the car again
5. Once the powdery stuff has come off, polish vigourously with another clean dry soft cloth
6. Repeat process if required

End result - Your window glasses have an almost mirror like finish. From 3 feet distance outside the car, all you can see is your own reflection. One has to come less than a feet to the glass to be able to see inside. I did notice far lesser stares when we went out yesterday evening.

I did not do this treatment to the front or rear windows, as I was not sure if there will be any image distortion / loss of visibilty. I did not feel any loss of visibilty from inside the car through the side windows. Since there is no film pasted, I am confident I haven't broken the law . The AC also seemed to cool faster, as the heat was being reflected, but that could just be psychological

Not sure how long the gloss will last. Will try and post pictures later.

EDIT: I did this treatment only to the outside surface of the glass

I did a DIY removal of sunfilm from my Getz and Swift over the weekend. I now have a bucket full of the useless removed sunfilm. I dont want to put it in the trash.

Does anyone have the address of the great Mr. Avishek Goenka - would really love to send him a gift of the removed sunfilm.

Can we all do that ? Am sure he has figured out a way to dispose the sunfilm ? If not let him find one !

in gurgaon,i call these laws "emergency money", also known as "GTP welfare fund".
at times cops in ggn are stranded,far from family,home and atm.
what to do in such dire times?
fish out a rulebook.
"tyre pressure in 3 tyres 30 psi,4th tyre 31 psi? fine 1k."

sometimes ,"jusht".

some of the most crooked cops i have ever seen !

I have a smile on my face. This is what I have to do to live in this country as a law abiding (middle class) citizen?

Sad truth, isn't it? Look at the bright side. My car has never been so clean and shiny, ever since I bought it

I bought these shades this noon at a traffic signal near Manyata tech park. Rs.150/- for four nos.

It is stuck to the window through vaccum creating knob. Press it against the window and there you are with some privacy.

This is almost a permanent place for catching speed and film violators. Saw DTP 9 out of 10 times at the same place.

Last week, they were removing films of a Toyota Prius alongwith other cars.
