I am deciding between the following combos for my Linea:

Garware - Rs. 8,500
Icecool shield - Windshield + Icecool Elite 50 - Rear & sides

VKool - Rs. 30,000

V70 - All around

VKool - Rs. 20,000

V70 - Windshield + A50 - Rear and sides

Any advice? Are the Vkool products worth spending Rs. 12,000 - Rs. 22,000 over the Garware? From a pure specs perspective it seems that Garware is better than Vkool but seems like most of this forum prefer VKool.


Thanks for the help!!

Legal limit as per the MV Act is 70% visibility within the car. All faces of the occupants in the car must be visible.

Legal limit is 70% for front windscreen and 40% for all other glass surfaces.

VK70 on all glasses cost ~35K on a Civic and VK70 on the windscreen with VK40 (Diamond) on all other glasses cost ~36K on a Civic. Your car might have a different (usually lower) cost.

Are you sure, as I understand it is 70% for all around. Delhi Police enforces this law very strictly due to one time sudden increase in abduction and rape in moving vehicles.

It's what was told to me by a vehicle inspector when I went for registration. Don't know if it varies by state.

What's the better choice between Garware & LLumar?

With a budget of 10K, what's recommended? (windshield + rear & sides)

MC, in Hyd it is 70% front and back, 50% all around, I confirmed with RTO during my registration. But I got 70% front and 37% all around. Inspector did not frown, just a long stare(could not figure out what that meant )

Long stare because in Hyderabad, there is a big laxity in implementation of the law. The rules regarding tinting are not state subject but national subject governed by CMVR.

Thanks for the info.

Isn't the VLT on the grand only 40%? Did you put Icecool Shield on the windshield and Grand on the other windows?

How much did you pay and for which car.

Thanks again!

VKOOL Delhi dealer number for films:09313284363


The above number is actually not dealer but the company directly.They install directly and do not retail through other shops apparently in Delhi at least.

Based on specs Garware seems like the best bet.

I'm thinking of getting the following combination:

Icecool shield - Windshield + Icecool Elite 50 or Icecool Grand - Rear & sides.

Price should be between Rs. 8,000 - Rs. 9,000. Will decide once a few more TBHPians weigh in.

I got the front windshield sun control film (V-Kool V70) installed yesterday. Checked price with Infra Cool Solution and they quoted Rs.12,800 for my Innova. Called Ravindu Toyota and their initial quote was Rs.11,500. Negotiated and finalized at Rs.9,500 including installation. Need to see the difference it makes when driving in the hot sun. Will post my comments soon.
