Hi Amitjha,

2-Sun Film--SUn film-http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifications-accessories/14060-sun-film.html
But before going for it, please visit--http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian-car-scene/23025-new-traffic-rules-delhi.html

Not sure about the repair kit for Tubeless tyres
Please search TBHP first. I am sure you will find all queries answered already some where

for parking sensors look at a company called parksonic. i have one which has 4 sensors and an lcd screen which shows the distance. for pics see my garage.

for sumfilm look at 3m or llumar or if you have the budget vkool. the sides need 50% visibility and front and rear need 70%.

Congrats for your new car. Your location suggests you live in Noida. I guess if you commute to delhi regularly then getting a sunfilm will be bad idea as it is totally banned in Delhi. If you are caught will be fined for it and they will also tear it off.

Congrats for your new car. Great choice of colour.
I have a few black cars so I can relate with your choice.
Re parling sensors see my thread about my innova. The sensor ive got put (4 sensors) work very efficiently and since the sensors are black coloured, they wont look like an eyesore on the bumper (rear). It comes with an LCD screen. Dont go for a camera unless you really want it bad as I think its a waste except in larger SUVs or Vans.

I shopped for a lot of sun films and the value for money are 3m/Garware. They are Indian made foriegn brands and very efficient. If wanted, put on a front wind screen film, also Garware (recommended). The cost should not more than 2500 ( one can get a cheaper brand but its better to get a known brand)for the entire car and if putting on the front film then around 3000 more. A V-cool or something will set you back by 8000-10,000 big ones but they are efficient. I would'nt put this kind of money on a film.

I would not recommend a tubeless tyre repair kit unless you mean the tyre seal. Well its like this, fi you are extensively doing highway runs on rough roads meant roads ridden with nails and spiky things thenits not worth it. You will have to get the car to a tyre shop anyway as this seal is only temporary and not a permanent solution. Its like 500 bucks+ but why waste it if you're gonna be doing mostly city runs. Also most of our highways are ridden with tyre repair shops and if you do have a flat, use the spare dude. Dont get the repair kit.

ive never heard of these wireless parking sensors. can we have a pic?

you can get totally transparent film thats heat resistant. but its gonna be very expensive.

actually most of the tyrewallas now can repair tubeless tyres.

with regards to good sunfilm for the sx4, i found out about the vkool from a mumbai dealer (at chembur) i already have them on my swift, for the sx 4 they gave the following ,if you go for 60% heat reduction (without the front screen) it would set you back 7.5k and for the 71% heat reduction, 9.8k but that has a reflective screen of gold..the 90% heat redcution is near about 17K, these are indicative prices taken over the phone after the typical negotiations these were the "best prices" offered..must add here, vkool comes with a 5 year warranty.

Did not want to start a new thread but am going in for a sunlight copper sx4 and would like to know a little about the accessories recommended.

1>. Parking sensors, going in for one but not able to find any which matches the paint colour so have to stick with black coloured sensors.

2>. Underbody 3M treatment ,should or should I not go for it.

3>. Car window films two options both from garware one is the cheaper one the other about Rs. 4500 odd he tells me its some ceramic coat one should I go for this additional expense.

4>. Not going in for a steering wheel cover,is it really needed in the sx4.

5>. Dealer has Recommended beige colour seat covers for the sunlight copper car,should I stick to beige or go in for a darker colour.

im sure you can get your dealer to paint the sensors in the colour of the car.

i dont think you need 3m treatment unless you live in a coastal area.

check whether the more expensive one has better heat reduction.
