I got the Llumar AIR65 film installed on the front windscreen. I had ordered the AIR75 which was Rs.5500, by mistake they installed the AIR65 which is 600 bucks more expensive. Anyway, they didn't charge me extra for that mistake.

I don't know about HYD. But in Blr, they charged 1900 for Front and 1400 for others(Classic Garware).
And High-end Autocop is 6.2K and leather grip for Stering 450/-
I hope I was not cheated..

I dont agree with GTO either... I have front films on all my cars and i swear by it. But make sure u buy completly transparent films to ensure the best vision, also with good company films u get a scratch proof warranty so incase u r film gets scratched they will replace it. In bombay summers its a boon...specially if u have a car with a big windscreen without a front film u will roast. Often when my accord is parked in the sun for a long time and i sit in it the heat is unbareable even though i have a front film i cant even imagine how bad it will be without a film.The endeavour also has a film in the front but the heat doesnt come in much as the windscreen is much smaller than the accord.
P.S - I think the smartest thing to do is... fit normal suncontrol quality films on the side and rear...and have V-kool fitted on the windscreen coz thats the biggest class in the car...if budget permits then have V-kool fitted on the rear this shoudl keep u cool in desert summers too

I always preferred dark tints on all my cars.I've even driven on double jet-black tints in my Esteem a few years back.The only hiccup on the front winshield is the visibility at night.It gets too dark while driving through an unknown or a dimly lit road.One of the main reasons why i had to get rid of it on my Lancer.Light tints like 35mm is alright on the front windshield.No problems whatsoever.

any oldies out here. my fear is that the sun film will affect visibility. i dont use any su film at all. the only glass that can safely use sun film is the one behind the driver and maybe the rear (V kool).

the front windows and windshield need 100% visibility without being hazzed over. the rear left window has a blind spot in most cars and you need visibility there too as all you got is your preipheral vision.

On occasion i have had to drive cars with sun film and in most cases I find it reduces vibility quite a bit. Usually this is becuase the sun film has gotten scratched, hazy and dimpled over time. more info here.

Just got back to Bangalore today, but without the car. Since I have to go back again tomorrow, I left the car at my in-laws.

The front windscreen sunfilm effect was absolutely fantastic. Throughout the 7 hours drive, it kept the inside very cool even with A/C set at minimum setting. Sun was simply unable to hurt our skin even after prolonged exposure. My wife just loved it.

Regarding the night driving, I didn't realize I had a sunfilm on when I was driving NH-17 yesterday night. It is simply transparent at night.

The Llumar AIR65 is worth every rupees I paid and more.

Will call you tonight.
