This was nice update and result. Yes, the tint at front help actually during day time and night time (reducing glares from opposite headlights and sun). It reduces fatigue.

I am starting on 23rd for very long trip to down north and hope this will helps a lot keeping cabin cool.

As far as I know, RTO does not permit installation of any sort of a film on the front windscreen let alone one with a VLT of 70%. This is something I remember reading or hearing some place, however, please correct me if wrong.

^^You are right about it, any of the front film is not approved form RTO. The certificate provided by the Sunfilm manufacturers are only for the side and rear film not for the fornt.

@Blackfire, it is allowed.

Delhi Traffic Police, New Delhi (India) - Tinted Glass in Motor Vehicles
Minimum 70% VLT for front, and 50% for sides.

From the packaging of the SunFilm:

I would recommend v-kool 70 on front as well as rear because it offers excellent visibility and a great ambiance inside the car.

but, if privacy and light reduction is important, go for vkool 70 on the front and 40 on the sides and rear. It's the best option available. :-)

That is fine, but for the sides and rear you can even install the economy range. There is not a very big difference in the heat rejection and you will probably save about 10-12k at least. For the front V70 is the best.

Akshay,

Thanks a lot, any specific model for the sides? I'm all lost on this have had air 80 (llumar) on another car and it's crap let's hope this does help with Ahmedabad summers,

Also is 12k a good price for just front glass?

Regards,

Small 3m CR70 update

I've found that I no longer even notice the internal reflections from my front-screen 3M CR70 film any longer, so I guess it is not an issue.

As mentioned before, polarising sunglasses completely eliminate that reflection anyway.

Which car is this for? The price depends on that.

Well in the economy range check out K37 for sides and back. It will be a tad bit darker from the outside than V40 but the visibility is perfect from inside. You will see a massive difference between Llumar 80 and this.

If you can afford it, stick with vkool 70 or 40. Depending in your direction of travel, sun through side windows could get irritating. For instance, travelling in north or south direction during morning or afternoon will be irritating especially during peak summers. Go for vkool 70 or 40 even on the sides and rear and enjoy the coolness. :-)

I wish you had got a darker shade for the sides and rear. With CR70 too much light comes in, and with darker films the sun doesn't hit you that much.
