yes 6500. direct from the distributor. no front windscreen film can be so inexpensive as the tech for a clear/lightly tinted film with higher TSER is more expensive. simple.

Yes. Llumar AIR 75 has a list price of Rs.6750 with reciept and warranty card. Some accessories dealers charge an additonal Rs.250-400 for installation.

You may get a discount of about Rs. 500 on that and a free installation if you bargain well and /or buy and install other products from the dealer.

Ensure that you get a reciept and a warranty card.

i know this thread is reserved for front windscreen tints only but i have a problem.
i have jet black garware tints (authentic or not? not sure maybe the dealer took me for a ride) But problem with this is apart from being almost impossible to see anything from the outside , the inside visibility is very very poor!!
can you guys suggest a good brand but remember i love jet black and i will still stick to it.

It is impossible to get any kind of visibility, let alone good visibility with jet black tints. Furthermore they are illegal and a safety hazard. If you care for yourself and others on the road, you will remove those tints and never mention them again.

Jetblacks are for those who dont look into the sides or rear view mirror when they drive.It looks extremely good on some cars. But you have to enjoy that view only with the cars parked. So they are nice for model cars, not for the cars that can be driven.Infact any shade darker than 50% gives me a phobia, like locked up in a room.

well i absolutely disagree with you.
many people are using dark tints and very well happy with them.
i feel they are a personal choice and about being a safety hazard its not necessary that if the tints is dark from the outside it has to be opaque from the inside also?
its all the matter of using the right quality tints .

About the matter of being legal how many of you people follow the law regarding the tints? you assume that you are following the law and put 50% visibility tints But you guys don't realize that the car manufacturer already supply's your car with light tints.
so that becomes around 60% visibility so technically you are breaking the law also.

Do you actually calculate the % of the tint for example existing tints 10% so you choose 40% visibility tints? i don't think so.

When you get caught by the cops when they use the tint meter on your glass let it be 51% visibility or 10% visibility you "WILL" get fined.

There are reasons for those legal restrictions.
1. The law enforcement is able to see who is in the car.
2. The driver inside can have a clear visibility of whats happening outside.

And thats precisely the reason manufacturers dont come with more than the slightest tint.

I can confidently say that people who have dark or jetblack tints have issues while driving, especially at night and that too if its raining nothing like it. All of them have put that in for showmanship. Its good to look from the outside. But its difficult to drive with it.

If you say that you feel very comfortable driving with these tints in the night, please do drive a car without a tint, you will certainly appreciate the difference.

If you are not convinced, thats fine; I will keep a watch on the road for a white camry, so that I dont go near it, especially in the night.

lol you never read my full post dint you?
did you take privacy into consideration also?
what about thefts of precious items such as your Car audio system etc.
BTW its not on my camry ( it has 40% visibility) and dont worry about me being behind you
there's lots more of things you need to worry about other than some guy with dark tints . Take a lorry with poor brakes , auto guys, jaywalkers etc.
seems like this thread has been completely useless for me . Hence im not going to ask help from people who are giving "advices" instead of suggestions .

Thanks

Wow, the world has missed the invention of a tint that defies the laws of physics!

The rest of us actually put 70/75% tints on our windshields and...

...because we know how to do basic math, not get stopped at all. Of course, seeing that parked lorry without any hazard lights or reflectors, swaying in time and not ending up as red paste on the road is a big bonus as well.

No Offense buddy.

I would love to get that privacy as well. But there is a limitation on passenger cars.

If the goods that you transport in your vehicle needs that privacy then its best to look for a tempo traveller or something, which you can completely tint at the back of it and leave the driver with reasonable visibility.
I have seen some vehicles like this, including caravans.

Interior visibility can be enhanced by all kinds of lighting effects.

by us you mean you.
talk for yourself buddy i can personally hand pick many galleries in TBHP itself with cars having dark tints . And please learn to read the entire set of posts , I clearly have mentioned im talking about side windows not the front.

enough is enough this is my last post regarding my asking for a suggestion here. It seems some people are not capable of giving a good suggestion but rather insist on lecturing me.
Thanks for your replies there will be no more posts on my behalf regarding this issue (lol i swear this is the last post ) .

relax vinaydas..everyone is just concerned... go for Lumar tints.. rating of '5' on the windows and rear..and i think '20' on the windshield should be good.. i personally have '5' on the windows and read and '35' on the windshield for my accent.

In order of darkness..'5'>'20'>'35'

It does get a bit difficult to drive at night..but you do get used to it eventually.. upgrading your headlights and fogs to HID's will help quite a bit..

@Vinaydas: Bro, you missed stating that you have problem with window sunscreen rather you just mentioned I have a problem. And thus everyone was concerned about your safety with jetblacks tints.

As others mentioned. You can get a good quality sunscreen like Lumar on your ride and all will be good. For what I have learnt from this thread is don't skim on the quality and installation expertise and you will be one happy chap.

All the best!

And +1 to Santosh
