Hi All,
I am hunting for the sunfilms for my scorpio. I have been quoted 18K for the front windscreen film - V-Kool V 70 and V 40 for the side and rear window. Only dealer is offering the v-kool option, guranteeing not to break the defogger on rear screen.
Is the quote sensible? Please help.

Hi Scorpwarp,

I would suggest you checkout some other brands as well such as llumar, Garware etc, as the may be able to offer better prices, as the carnation guy quoted 12,000/- with the same configuration in Llumar for my Combi, and as far as Defogger is concerned, it wont break at the time of installation, but it might come off when you try to remove the Film after installation.

3M has come out with many variants and there is supposedly a 100% transparent film with 99% UV compliant.I was quoted something like 9k.

You get a sheet of film with 99% UV reduction for free with your car. It's called the windscreen

(My point is - what's the heat energy reduction?)

A film in the front windscreen - will it not reduce the visibility in the night time.
I have seen most of the cars used to fix film only about 5/6 inches from top end.This may save the sunrays directly hitting to your face?

Thumbs up issues with heated up dashboard in fabia

Hi Friends

I drive a skoda fabia. The problem i am facing is mostly with day time driving. The large windscreen of the car passes on all the sunlight to the black dashboard which in turn absorbs all the heat with such an amazing efficiency that the dash becomes red hot that you cant even touch it. Just drive the car for 5 minutes or so and you can feel the dash radiating heat to the driver compartment. The climate control system even if put in highest cooling mode is insufficient to take on this heat radiation. Initially i thought that the AC was not good quality and hence the issue. But now i realize that the real culprit in dash. Whats the solution ? Recently heard about windshield heat protective films which costs around 2000INR or so. How effective are they. Since sticker is put in windshield will it cause trouble later ? Like visibility issues particularly while driving at night. Are there any alternatives?


regards

One solution for all your issues, tried and tested by yours truly in both night and day conditions, from the muggy heat of Mumbai to blazing Ahmedabad midday sun:

Llumar Air 75

Vkool 70 (blue ribbon) ~ 55% TSER or 3M CR 70 ~ 50% TSER (Budget comapred to VKool) may give better heat reduction than Llumar.

Suggest you go for Llumar, AIR 75 works really well on my Honda City front windscreen. As per my accessories guy, dont simply go by the 3M TSER numbers. Results are comparatively better with Llumar

Vkool though expensive is the best!

@Bhaani, Have you tried the CR70 film? I do know a lot of folks who are using it inspite of its higher price and very happy with it.

Unless we can based discussions on concrete data, the claim that numbers can be disregarded is a bit wierd, dont you think.

santosh.s may have the latest version of a comparison sheet we did a few months back which can throw up a few more options.

Llumar Air 75 has been effective & great bang for the buck.

This is after experiencing the product on Indica, Optra - Magnum & New CRV - all with relatively large front windscreens in their category.

I don't remember exactly how much I had paid for it, but it was around 6-7k for the front windscreen alone, I have Garware on the rest.
