UltimateChamp thanx for the info.Also if you could find out the reason for not installing NF,I would be really grateful.
Ice Cool Shield was Rs 2850 /- MRP,plus I got a 5% dealer discount on it,as I pointed it out earlier.

The problem with NF films is that it condenses a lot and there are watermarks after few days of use.

I agree with zaks, its better to stick with time tested and proven ones than experiment with un-branded newer films. Garware, 3M, Llumar and V-kool is usually what everybody has tried out here.All are good but prices go up in that order.

LLumar entry level stuff is best avoided. Dont know about their higher end stuff.

I went it for it because of the warranty and it came free from the dealer but it doesnt do the job.

I have KoolTint on my car and it doesn't seem to be great. I did pay a lot for it. Is it just me or is there someone else out there who is using this?

If using for the windscreen don't go for anything other than AIR65 or AIR75, they would be around 6000-7500. For the sides you can go for steel50/steel60 which could be gotten for about 3000 I think.

If you want to go for front windshield film, do not go anything less than llumar air75 or air65. It is not worth going for a cheap film. For the sides llumar steel35 is a good option as steel50 is very light.

Hi Guys,

I got Air 75 from Llumar installed on my swift.

It's the lightest shade and no issues while driving in the night. It def cuts out the glare from the oncoming vehicles to an extent which helps a lot for Highway driving.

Cheers

I wish I could. My budget is around 3000Rs for the WindScreen. I already have window and the Back side. Please advice me in that range.
