Knowing this might help quantify the difference on removing sun films.

P.S - I searched a few threads on sun-filming, but could not get any data on this.
Since there was no response, I had to quote myself Does someone have information on this?

So, that should be a good reason to use Films, wouldn't it?

I can vouch for the fact that the PIL was NOT filled by sun-film companies. Period

How do I know? Well, this dude has multiple PILs to his credit and even went too extreme to file a PIL urging the government to conduct elections during winter season

I will wait and watch for sometime and will not remove my car's film which blocks just 30 % visibility. Will use bike to office.

In case if I need to use car, I will roll down all 4 windows and drive, so that Cops cannot identify immediately. Cannot do any thing for rear glass.

You guys can also use same trick, but some car's rear windows will not roll down fully.

How can you vouch for someone you don't know personally?

How can you say that sun-film companies can not contact this person who has history of filing baseless PILs and offer him money to file such PIL?

UPDATE:

No police checking on Dwarka Road no 201 going towards airport. Same goes for Azad Hind Fauj Marg (Coming from Dwarka mode). 'Enforcer' vehicles spotted going towards Sector 6-9.Be wary of barricades just before markets. These are regular policemen & not Traffic police.

Traffic police present b/w Dabri more & C-1 Janakpuri traffic signal. Be cautious.

On a lighter note Now ive decided to buy a two wheeler and use that till the judgement is reversed :

I think others who are having expensive films should try the same. The net cost of sunfilms can equate to the price of a 2nd hand two wheeler especially those having cr70 films from 3m.

The PIL is bogus. Maybe the person wants to be famous and in the hopes of that he files 100s of PILs hoping atleast one strikes a chord and he becomes famous :rofl:

Instead of tinted glasses, why not use photochromatic glasses like in spectacles. Sun protection during day and best visibility at night too without glare.

So far in bangalore Im seeing fully blacked out cars which arent getting challaned as of now. Wonder how they drive with the rear windhsield fully blacked out and orvms closed.

I guess making this thread private only to members should help

At last went ahead and removed sunfilm in a local accessory shop.
Paid - Rs 250

Additional damage is 9.5K

This damage have no direct link with removal of the film. After removing the tint I could see the seats from outside which looks horrible due to my negligence in giving right attention to cold drink splill kid's crayon art etc.

Suddennly felt the need of a seat cover and paid 9.5 for a fairly good seat cover .

Per the judgement, only VIPs of Z/Z+ security and the like may be exempted on their "official" vehicles.

And if I remember right, Z/Z+ is almost to the Chief Ministerial level.. people who can banish the checking officer on the spot!

who would dare to check them official or unofficial, when lucrative aam aadmi is around!

UPDATE: Today went from dwarka sector-1 to vikaspuri, and back, via C-1 and dabri.

I went there in morning around 11 and came back just couple of minutes before, no cops or some sort of activity on whole route.

Well the supreme court sure didn't consider the PIL to be baseless for sure

I guess you are talking about large business groups with vested interests wielding a lot of power in govt. policy making. But the courts simply interpret the law. There are a lot of laws in our country that are there on paper and nobody really takes it seriously. For e.g The speed limits mentioned on many highways is at times 40 or 60 or 80. People hardly care to slow down. Tomorrow the supreme court can give the verdict that the maximum permissible speed on any road in India is 80 kmph , so all motor vehicles should come prefitted with speed governors which will ensure that everyone abides by the 'Law'.

But then I don't understand why you think Sun film companies themselves would offer money to someone to file a PIL that goes against their business interest?

people who have expensive music systems, will now be displaying it to thieves. I usually carry my laptops for meetings and most of the time i just leave them in my car, now thieves can do a bit of window shopping and break in to steel stuff

Off topic: wasn't such a rule implemented couple of years back? I had removed my tints in Delhi during 2007. i am sure, this rule would be put on hold.

Till then my car would be parked in safety of my house.

Can the Supreme court make it MANDATORY for all car manufacturers to have 70% VLT tinted glasses for all cars, irrespective of segment / category? This could solve the problem. But this may push the price up but not sure by how much. Thoughts?
