I seem to be the odd man out here. I like bottlegreen. Soothing for eyes on highways. I've got light green film on my car, but it is not exactly the shade I want :(

My second choice would be the popular choice, i.e. black.

Post nope

rather than fitting the ugly "flimshtar/politison" black/dark sun-film on my car windows, i prefer the lighter tints (RTO approved variety) with as much UV protection as possible.

not a good idea. reflects light - an uncomfortable/unsafe distraction to drivers of other vehicles.

I have a permit to drive on jet-black. So no probs at all.
Visibility is an issue initially. But then its just a matter of time getting used to it.

I think colour of the film should be one which is suiting to your car colour. I have Light black sunfilm looks nice with the colour of my car (Satturn Gray)

Cheers,
Amey

Last week, I bought a Silver coloured Garware Sunfilm. The shopowner told me that it's scratch resistant & silver is having better heat reflection ability than dark coloured.

And silver looks more gorgeous than any other coloured sunfilms.

Total Cost : Rs.1000
