Exactly. The blazing sensation on face and hands are gone. Today was what, about 38 Celcius in Pune. Had to take an hours drive between 1 p.m to 2 p.m. Thanks to the film, there was no sweat and heat in the car.

@Spadix, I should also thank you, for your installation gave me the push.

Indian Decars at Banjara Hills was not ready to quote below 5k for CS-35. Car Shringar at Greenlands quoted 3M for 2900 and recommended Autographix for 3200/-

I finally settled for Autographix Charcoal35 series of film with 35 vlt and around 50% heat rejection for 3200.

Default Re: Price for 3M sunfilm?

Can anyone here please help me out.

I just got a quote of 4K for 3M RE50 sunfilm for the sides+rear for my Ford fusion. The guy is a trusted dealer here in Delhi so he is pretty authentic.

But the question here is, Is the price right or is he demanding more?

PS - Is there any other brand that you guys want to recommend? I know the llumar distributor in Delhi personally and I am sure i can get a good price there, but Are these any good? What is the warranty on llumar, 3M gives 3 year warranty on RE series.

Please recommend a llumar film also which looks like the RE 50 of 3M.


PPS - In Delhi, permitted sun film visibilty is 50% for the sides and 70% for front and rear.

4K seems to pretty ok for the RE 50 Mustang! But do try shaving off a couple of hundreds more. It should be possible.

Llumar films are good too. Compare the specs with the llumar steel series too. I reckon 3M to be slightly better in terms of heat rejection figures.

Hmm, I wonder what made deCars change their mind? Have they been monitoring this thread?

I hope Car Shringar did a good job. They totally ripped me off on a job that I went to them for some two years back. The 3M they quoted for 2.9k may be the SP or CS series.

Ok thanks, But how about the front sunfilm? Is it worth the extra dough?

Default Re: Price for 3M sunfilm?

I'm a little confused. Are we talking about clear film for the front windshield or with minimal tint.
I understand that we get fully clear film with decent heat rejection for the front windshield from V-Kool, Lumar and 3M all in the range of Rs 6500/- for one windshield.
I've used 3M CS20 for my windows and rear windshield through the dealers as a freebie along with my Cruze

I wouldn't use RE70 on the front. The reflective look is sure to attract cops, although the 70% VLT is kosher.

CR70 (or equivalent product by another manufacturer) is preferable for the front windscreen. Besides, CR trumps RE in terms of TSER and given the area of the front windshield that becomes important.

What do you think is the price for CR70 for the front?

Also what is TSER?

For the Civic it cost 6k.

TSER = Total Solar Energy Rejected. The 'total' bit refers to the invisible components of sunlight viz. IR (heat) and UV. So it's (IR + visible light + UV).

Is it true that the 3M sunfilm prices have gone up by 5% or so ?
First week of march I was quoted 4500 for RE35 for sides & rear of ANHC and 5500 for CR70 for the front windsheild. Today the RE35 costs 4900 and CR70 cost 5750.

Yes !! The front windscreen has the largest area and maximum inclination, therefore maximum solar heat ingress takes place from there. So if your day involves prolonged parking in open, then front sun film is definitely recommended. And as mentioned in previous posts, here you focus on the VLT (not less than 70%) & TSER (as high as possible) to have the maximum benefit. Additionally, front film will help at night by reducing the glare from on-coming traffic.

Yes; there is an increase in price effective 1/March.

I tinted my Linea's glasses this month and below are the prices

Total Cost :
CR70 - Rs. 6500
RE35 - Rs. 5670

I got a discount of 10 percent from the above listed price. I paid Rs.10,953 in total.

At 3M, prices were classified in to 4 - small, medium, large & Extra Large.
ANHC is classified as 'large' and Linea in 'Extra large'.

The difference between Large and Extra large was around approx rs. 400
