It makes no sense at all for the film to be put on the outside.

Default llumar it is for me :)

Phew .. 21 pages in one shot ... actually one lunch in between

Had gone through the thread to get as much info as I can about front wind screen filming. I was offered llumar Diamond Series for 7.5 for the front shield by my Maruti Dealer in Bangalore. I think that was a good price offered and about being genuine they provide be a bill with guarantee certificate whenever I buy things from them. Should that be enough to judge the authenticity of the product ?

Reason for selecting llumar : the other glass areas in my car is fitted with llumar platinum series tints which are pretty effective.

Will get it done as soon as I am back home. Thanks everyone for the info.

Instead of going for expensive front sunfilm does anyone know where in bangalore I can get the front windscreen sunshade. It's a mirror like foil which is folded when not in use and you just put it on the glass when parked.

The rollon ones with the funny pics are of no use whereas this with the silvrfoil is extremely effective.

All i know is it costs Rs.200 but I dont know where to get it from. I tried a few accessory shops but no one stocks it. Have told a friend to get it from US but that will take time. It costs around $6 there.

I have been searching for heat control films WITHOUT tints...absolutely clear films. I did not know they exist till this thread...

The summer isn Pune is extremely hot and afternoon drives with AC on full blow give me frustrating feeling with a stale warm air blowing on my face.

But there is old saying - if something is too good to be true, chances are that it may not be true!

So really want to know if the V Cool Windscreen clear film is REAL ?
And does it really do the job.

I read all the posts and majority seems to favor the windscreen clear film as a concept and V Cool as a product with a few unfortunate users experiencing problems...

My concern is I do not want to end up being one of the unfortunate ones...

Would like to know:
1. All this hazy view, rain-fogging, dash-board reflection problems reported by some: Are all these purely workman-ship issues or the concept has a few dis-advantages ?

2. Can I wipe the inside surface of the Windscreen after the film is applied ? Someone in my family or even the Deccan Honda guys (during servicing) may do it and if it's going to spoil the film, it will be a big loss for me.

3. V Cool says visibility reduced by 70%. Friends, is this not an issue at all ? I mean - I will have my headlights reduced to 70% of their strength during night driving. Will that be OK ?

4. What about durability ? The Windscreen film will work like new for 5 years or some gradual degradation ?

5. In the office parking, I have 3 of my windows rolled down by 0.5 inch for ventilation. Can I continue to do this with V Cool on ?

Thanks for your support. I just want to clear my mind as it's going to be a huge cost for me. I am hoping it's a wise investment in terms of A/C anf fuel efficiency and extending life of the car interior.

Would appreciate if I can get advice/feedback on all the points I mentioned + anything else I missed.

I've got V-kool on my car. So here goes the answers. Hazy view.. Nope. As long as you have your windscreen kept clean its not an issue.

Dashboard reflection can happen even on cars without sunfilms on the windscreen. I haven't faced this as a problem with regards to v-kool.

Condensation happens internally when the outside of the car is colder than the interior side. Use the a/c. Condensation happens externally when the outside of the car is hotter than the inside. If the sunfilm is installed properly this will not be a problem. The day v-kool was installed I had the misting up problem. It cleared up after parking my car in the sun as the vendor suggested.

They put a transparent sealant around the sunfilm edges and I was asked not to wipe it out for 3 weeks to be on the safer side. This was only for the front and back windscreen. This is to prevent air bubbles occuring. Obviously the windows should not be rolled up or down for 3 to 4 days.

Yes, you can wipe the inside surface of the windscreen with a soft cloth. Just like you would do for any windscreen. The only issue is you cannot use the liquid cleaners. You can use diluted shampoo water.

I had to give strict instructions to the servicing guys not to wipe the interior glasses. You should also be careful that they don't stick anything on the front windscreen. Even though I had told them specifically they went ahead and stuck a small next service sticker on it. :-( Anyway it was removed without any problem.

Visibility is reduced to 73%. Not "by" 70%. I've not faced any issues so far. You can switch over to more luminous headlights if you think it could be a problem. I've seen guys with 40% visibility tints on their front windscreen. Don't know how they drive !!!

Hope it does. There's a guarantee for 5 years. Anyone with v-kool long enough? I read up some links online on v-kool. Very positive on it.

Don't get the question. The v-kool is on the inside of your windows. You can have the window fully rolled down also. No issues.

It is very effective when you are driving facing the sun. Hands don't get hot or prickle. Steering wheel is not at all hot even when parked in direct sunlight. Of course the car will be hot inside due to radiation from the roof and other sides, but the effect from the glass is very much reduced.
