never heard of it and rates are very high.

go for llumar AIR 65 TR for around 6100 bucks for the windshield and

for the windows go for llumar steel 35 or 50.
they do a good job.
you even get warranty, and in case you need a chage because of a broken window, they are readily available.

Guys i got Garware Sunfilms fitted on my Ikon, all around including front/rear winshields for just Rs.1000 at Karol Bagh, New Delhi.
These were household films designed for 35-40% heat reduction, 35% visibility, 90% UV rejection.
Great films at the price as they actually reduce heat and one can make out the difference as sitting inside the car sunlight does come in but heat is very less as compared to plain glass. 35% visibility sounds very less but from inside visibility is absolutely fine in both daylight and night.
Infact during the day people were looking at the car when i was sitting inside and i could look at them clearly so i thought they were very light but only to realize that they were actually trying to look inside but could see very little(this is when i made my friend sit inside and i was outside trying to look inside and all i could see is somebody sitting inside but face was not visible, but he could see everything clearly from inside as if there was a very light tint on the films like 85% visibility, this was done in both daytime and night as i had to ensure good visibility from inside at all times).
Good films with heat rejection will have a high reflective index. This is evident when the car is viewed from outside(ofcourse) in both daylight and night time, reflection remains the same or almost similar. To make out if the films are local or non-heat rejecting, at night they lose their reflecting properties. They will also tend to fade away in a short span of time.

Yesterday I went to enquire about getting a light Film on my Verna. Guy looked at me & said Garware - 600 Rs !!!

I said any cheaper , He said no, there is a more expensive one @ 1300 Rs.

What do you want the sunfilm for? Just to darken the glass and ensure more privacy or do you want to really block sunlight/UV/IR ? If that's the case then please get something better. Garware/3M/Llumar all of them have some very good sunfilms.

Not really bro! infact my car is slowly turning illegal with each passing day with the mods i am planning and doing.

BTW legal limits in Delhi for Sunfilms are 70% visibility front and back and 50% visibility on the sides.
Mine are 35% visibility all around so you can imagine. The look of the car has enhanced though with my car being Silver and films Black.

Rs600 ones are probably the one comming in a kit by Garware which are legal and only for sides and rear and the rear windshield will be fitted in 3 pieces.
But because they are legal they are also very light though with heat and UV reduction.
Check out the Rs.1300 ones and BARGAIN

Even I was a little apprehensive about this Cool Tint thing...but the guy says it comes with 3 years warranty where as 3M gives only 2 years.
The person I spoke to is from a very reputed sunfilm store in Bangalore.
Really confused..

For the price ( 5500/- for the front ), you can get a reputed and known brand - 3M/ Llumar / vkool

So why be confused ? Go for the known devils than the unknown!

Managed to read thru 27 pages in 2 days, then jumped to make this reply.

Got 3M Medium tint (70% heat rejection) on sides and rear (single piece) in my Baleno today. Whole deal set me back by 4.4k here in Mysore. Wud've got a better price had i got it done in B'lore or if i had enquired at multiple places here, i suppose. But I am satisfied. Its not very sunny these days so couldn't test them.

I have used 3M and Lumar in some of my cards but had cool tint on my Honda City. It was the best that I have experienced. I would reccomend it over 3M and Llumar. Dont know much about the contents in the film but just sharing my first hand experience.

This definitely is a fake. Don't go for it, you are better off baking in the sun than damaging your windscreen with some inferior product which anyway will not offer any heat reduction.

I bought Verna last month and got film installed on the wind screen and my experience is good with that. the only point is, i have got a dark colour film so result is very good as far as sun light and heat is concern.
