I guess that depends a bit - I drive in city in low-beam always and resort to high beam only when on-coming traffic has blinding lights.

However, on highways i use high-beam almost all the time as I've had a couple of close calls with unmarked trucks/bullock-carts parked/moving by the roadside.

Once you wear anti-glare glasses the high beam from on coming traffic don't scatter and they seem like two bright dots (Without the scatter).
I would differ here.

The trucks, buses, cars, tractors, you just name it, all put on 100+ Watt Bulbs. I have faced many problems due to this.

I am unable to see even 5 feet ahead of me when these "KIND" People are coming in opposite direction.

When this happens, I simply have to stop and wait for that vehicle to pass me so that I can see the road ahead of me and drive.

Can any one please suggest remedy for this?

Spend some money on the lightest shade of polarizing/Anti-glare lenses?

From the posts in previous pages, owners were happy with performance with these 3 films. Specs are similar, though 3M fares marginally better. V-Kool is approximately 4 times that of Garware, while 3M is twice of Garware. 3M claims that it is "The only Sun Control Film with Multilayer NanoTechnology", while other 2 don't talk about technology.

I guess installation & other efforts would be same for either of these. The question is why there is huge difference in price?
I have recently installed the suncontrol film from InfraKool (IK-70) for the front windshield of my ANHC for 10.5k and I am very happy with its performance from the past 2 weeks. It not only blocks all kinds of rays and lights but enhances the functioning of AC (cooling effect) as well.

They have 2 models for the front windshield and its features are mentioned below:

Since Last April I am using Garware on All my windows and windshield. I found it to be quite effective in doing its work.
And cost effective also.

One question. Is it advisable to have films on the rear glass with filaments for defogger? One shopwalla advised against it while the other, seemingly more professional, said there was no problem? Wouldn't the heat, even if it is of minute proportion, affect the pasting of the film on the glass? Anyone who has gone for it please advise.

Absolutely no issues, neither with the film nor with the defogger. Have it on both my cars and never had a problem.

Sorry for not replying to your PM, just saw it. On the 3M site, they have a contact no for Bangalore, you should call that and ask for where to get films in Bombay, they will give you the sales head of Bombays number. Speak to him and he will either get it done for you or tell you a place to get it done.

Otherwise most of the shops at Opera house or Milan Subway sell genuine stuff.

Perhaps. But still what they make for 3M will be as per the specs and QC of that company. So a Garware and 3M film need not be the same!

Exactly, most companies, will have stringent quality control procedures and a product made by garware for 3M will be according to 3M's requirements and not necessary what garware sells in the indian market. Its like any apple product is made in china, and designed in california, you can see this clearly mentioned on all their products be it the macbook pros or the iphone. No one cribs about apple and compares them to cheap chinese knockoffs available in the market?

I have sunfilm all around except for the front windshield because driving at night is hard enough without the sunfilm. If you can get a clear polarizing sunfilm, that would probably be your best choice as it does not reduce night-time visibility.

I would say just be cautious while the installation is going on especially on the rear defogger. Have posted my issue : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...ml#post2057009 (Defogger not working / damaged after sun film fitting) Living with it since then
