I just got V Kool sunfilm for my Chevy Beat LT, The guys who came to install it have scratched my rear window, it's about 3 inches big. I noticed it fter coming home.
The guy was cutting the film with a blade on the rear window itself. The installers were from V Kool. I called the guys and told them, they said it is the first time this has happened, we will see if it's out fault or not. I told him i drove back home, was cleaning the window and saw it.

What should i do? any suggestions.

V Kool guys just looked professional, they did a job which any roadside mechanic can do, maybe better. I can still some small bubbles on the ide windows.

Sad to hear that. :( Since, you didn't notice it while it was done, I don't think, they will do something about it. They may say that the scratch was already there. Replacing the glass is not cost effective for them.

The reason why you need experts for doing v-kool work is because of the nature of the film. It's thicker than ordinary films. And, it'll take a few more days for all the bubbles to dry out. But, if it's too much, then u can get them correct that. I think, you have 5 years warranty, rt ?

No, he was joking.
The reason why film was on top of the glass was just to shape it using a heater to adapt itself to the curves of the glass.

oooh, the same thing happened to me as well, when they put VKool. But the scratch was not that big and I let it go.

Should not let these guys to cut film sticking to the car. But we trust these guys professionals and do not infringe on their work, but when the damage is realized, it is irrevokable

@ Amalji. Thanks, i'll wait it out on the bubbles for a day more.

@ Sankar. I did not get the front wind shield. But all the rest of the glasses came about 4000 Rs. Vkool's initial quote was 4600. Also I asked someone they said, the actual price of that film was 3200 + 12.5% tax = 3600.

Cross-posting from my ownership thread because this seems the right place to ask.

Here is the criteria -
  1. Budget is around 6000 to 7000 max
  2. Visibility shouldn't be affected either day or night or rain
Please help.

Thanks. Your brief review has all the details I needed. Now I just need to find some time over weekend to get 3M CR-70 installed for my Ritz.

finneyp,

What about the reflection from outside during daytime? Is inside of the car visible from outside during sunlight or is there mirror like reflection with CR70?
Also is there any silver or golden tint for whatever reflection available for the windscreen?

Hey guys, I have a pretty lame query: These front windshield films, do they install them from inside the cabin or from outside? I have been thinking of getting one as well. But I have heard of quite a few people complaining about bubbles and scratches after installation. So, I would prefer taking a fellow BHPian along to a trust worthy retailer to install the sun films

I don't face any reflection issues with CR-70. The inside of the car is clearly visible from outside.

Film is installed inside the windsheild.
Normally, the company (3M in my case) will send a person to install the film, and they do a good job.
