Default halo

like I said, the halo effect was present for the 1st week only. Due to the rains and lack of sunshine in Delhi, there was moisture trapped between the film and glass. Checked on the V-Kool site and it says that one needs to give time for film to fully settle in...

V-Kool (last question)

I've it installed on my baby and have not faced any problems in past 3 years. The only point is that it should be installed by a perfectionist. If you want to take a look at my baby, please visit my profile.

Hi HocusPocus,

Where in Gurgaon did u get it done and how much did it cost you? Is the shade of the photocromatic film used by you under the legal limits.

Your baby looks awesome with those films on.

I would say its pretty clear in the night and doesn't cause a hinderance while driving if the windows are rolled up. I can say clarity is a minimum of 80%. I'm not too sure of the make since I got it installed 3 yrs back. Though I can find it out for you, if you wish, when I visit that place next time. It costed me around 1000K.

Hi Farmoz,

Thanks for complimenting my baby.

This is perfectly under legal limits which I made sure while getting it installed from the guy. I've never been pulled aside for the shade of sunfilm. I got it installed from Accessories market in Lajpat Nagar - II. It costed me 1K.

Cheers

Bombay boys running with dark front tints better watch out. I read in the papers that the cops are going to start cracking down on tints once again, especially cars with tinted windscreens.

They've given a fortnight to legalise the tints, after which they will start fining people.

Apparently this is to curb terrorism?!?

Yes, please let me know what brand it is (assuming it is not too much of extra effort for you).

Ok i was just reading the whole thread but its way too big, so i have some questions. Sorry if they have been discussed earlier.

1. Whether 75% or 50% tinting sun film ?

2. Is it good to get the sunfilm on front windshield ? If yes what about the visibility at night ? and if visibility is less will those Philips Crystal Vision Halogen headlamps help?

there has to be 50% on the front and 70% on the side.. at least.

getting it on the front windshield helps alot. it cuts out loads of heat. there dosent seem to be a problem with night driving from what ive read on this thread.

get v-kool, 3m, or llumar.

Akshay1234 has made a small mistake.. :-)

its 70% on the front and rear and 50% on the sides. (RTO mandated)

50% on the side mirrors is good. anything lesser makes it a problem in the night time, especially if its raining.

Front windshield is excellent provided you get a good brand. After reading through the posts here I picked up v-kool. Its excellent and its exorbitant!! Its got 75% visibility and excellent heat, UV reduction.

Drive with it for sometime and if you are not comfortable you can get better headlamps.

The relevant rule on visibility (the Rule 100(2) of The Central Motor Vehicles Rules 1989) is here: http://morth.nic.in/mvlrule/rule5_100.pdf [warning--PDF link]; The norms specify 70% visual transmission of light in the front windscreen and the rear window, and 50% visual transmission of light in the side windows.

And here (Mumbai Traffic Police website FAQs): Mumbai Traffic Police
Quote:
Q) What is the rule for tinted glasses?
Ans. The glass of windscreen and rear window of every motor vehicle shall be maintained in such a way that visual transmission of light is not less than 70% and side windows shall be maintained in such a way that visual transmission of light is not less than 50% and shall confirm to Indian Standards.
