Hi,
Now that we are on the topic I would like to know what is the legal procedure for obtaining the RTO permission. To apply dark film all round the car glasses.

Garware isn't that bad actually. I know it's not found favour with a lot of people, especially on this thread... but I have fitted Garware SunControl "Cool Vision" on my Lancer, and am pretty satisfied so far.
The car (black in colour) has stood in the baking sun for lengthy periods, and the film is doing its job. There is obviously a bit of heat in the cabin, but that is expected, especially in a black car. A/C cooling time has reduced and the interiors are defintely cooler nowadays.
And the fact that Garware is much cheaper than Llumar or V-Kool doesn't hurt either.
Just my 2 cents... having used the product, I can recommend it.

How does an all clear film give you privacy?

Question Hi - Lumar / VKool dealers in Chennai ?

Hi guys, I wasn't for windshield films, but after reading the experiences of those who have trodden down that path, have opted to do the same. Does anybody know dealers in Chennai who could do a proper install of these films ?

Could you share where this was please?

Default Sunfilm for Aveo

I plan to put sunfilm on my Aveo. After going through the thread I decided on V-Kool for windshield and Llumar for S+R.

1. I want the windshield film to be as transparent as possible? Which is the V-Kool film that would satisfy this?

2. For S+R I want only a slight tint. Does slight tint mean less heat absorption?

3. Which Llumar film has slight tint?

4. Is it safe to put film on rear screen? Will it create problem for printed antenna and defogger?

5. I read that the rear film should be in one piece. If more than one piece is used how can I find it out?

Thanks,

Nirmal

all their front windscreen films should be more than 70% visible so that would be legal.. im sure when you see the catalogue you can decide.

more the tint more the absorption.. again when you see the brochure you can decide.

its completely safe for the rear windscreen. when it is put in 3 peices you will easily see the slight overlap. one peice looks better but it dosent really make a difference.

You do not get RTO permission for having dark films. The permission has to come from the Home/Police Department. You have to have a valid reason to be granted that permission.

Normally this permission is given to Ministers, persons under threat and having Govt. security etc..

This is not true in Delhi at present.... any quality or visibility is illegal.... I paid 600 Rs fine for Garware Film with 70% visibility... A couple of months back there was a strong drive from Traffic Police against Sunfilm...

I asked accessories shop for a more high visibility film, he suggested for removing film for some time, because this police drive..

Both, the Safari & Scorpio have Llumar films with maximum visibility. Of course if any vehicle without any tint or film on their glasses stand next to mine then only a hint of a shade is visible.

When this drive in Delhi was at its peak I shuddered at the thought of removing those films that were installed at a great cost. my accessories guy came out with a brilliant suggestion since both of my vehicles are all black.

He made me purchase the largest White bath towels from Bombay Dyeing and draped it over the seats. Ever since I drove and am, in the midst of these checkings with glory. Total cost incurred - Rs.575/- for the towels.
