Did you feel any difference in temperature of the cabin. what is the specification of Cool Vision your using. What about night driving how is the visibility?

Am planning to get one for my Santro
IIRC I had ICE COOL on my Santro ( and have ICE COOL on my Alto).

Yes there is a difference as I now quickly change to Level 1 of AC blower ( used to retain at level 2 for longer duration previously) .

Ice Cool Shield from Garware is very effective. I'm having it on my Santro Xing.

What is the specification of your Ice cool Shield?
How much did you pay for it ?
Is there any issue like windshield fogging up at night while using AC

Yes. In fact i choose 3M CR70 after a lot of good reviews. I have the bill and the 3M guy came and did the job. it has the 3M logo. To begin with it was OK, but now( one year later) it does'nt seem efective !

Thanks.. That was a timely feedback for me to decide on V70 vs CR70

Front windshield with V70 quoted for NHC by Bangalore V-kool (Vellara Office) was 11900/- I think this is too high.. any thoughts ?

do you park in Sun all the time?

Even I am in market for this film. This would be big surprise after hearing all the good about it.

Couple of months ago, I checked this in Sachin Auto Shop Koramangala for my ANHC and at that time quote I received was 9.5k.

I felt it's way too expensive and didn't opt for it, as most of the time my car stays in the shade.

This has never happened in any of the cars I own and my friends own.

DS, MRP is Rs.2,820 but the Operating Price is way less. I'm not aware of the present rates but I heard the prices have increased marginally. Moreover, Garware has launched Articool which has 78% Heat Reduction and costs 12k or something.

The Specs of Ice Cool Shield:
Heat Reduction/ Rejection: 50%
VLT: 70%(I think)

It has a Green tint and looks nice. Regarding Fogging, nothing like that under normal conditions.

After spending about 14 to 15 hours on the net searching for the right film for my White Cruze here is what I have arrived at. Let me know if I have erred in my choice. Will have to save up for 4 months to put in the first option. Since I stay in a Coastal area metallized films are contraindicated and I do concur as I have had proof of it by using this type of film from Garware on my Junkindica 10 years ago. 3 years down the line the Garware metallized film started to become hazy from within the film. No amount of cleaning helped. But once again economics come into play so I may not be able to afford the Ceramic films for all the glasses after all.

1st option) Huber Optik Huber Klar Ceramic 70 for the front windshield and for the sides and rear too which is ultra expensive. 4 months savings required. Please note that Klar Ceramic 70 and Klar Klar 70 are different products though both are ceramic impregnated.

Clear Ceramic Series

Check out the specification in the table above especially for the first column and infra red rejection.

2nd option) Huber Optik Huber Klar Ceramic 70 for the front windshield.
For the back and sides I would need to compromise and go for Icecool Grand by Garware knowing that they are metallized and hence not compatible with humid climates of Kerala. Google for metallized automotive film and humid climates.

Automotive Window Tinting | Car Window Shades & Tinting | Automobile Window Tinting

Ice cool Grand from Garware does not come in the drop down menu but click on the view all products link and its there as the third last item in the .pdf file. Its no way comparable to Huber Optik but does manage to reject heat by 70%.

Give me your feed back if any of you have got this done for your rides especially the Huber Klar Ceramic 70 and not the Huber Klar Klar 70 which is not comparable to the former in infra red rejection.

I have not compared Llumar , 3M and Vkool since they are all metallized or dye based films similar to Garware and thence would prefer the Indian product for economics since my patient is the dealer for Garware in Kerala.

If I were forced to choose between V-Kool, Llumar and 3M I would go for V-Kool X75 for the front wind shield and V-Kool 70 for other glasses.

If the mods could merge this post at the very end with the previous post it would be great.

Default The bible of glass films

Here is a site I chanced upon when surfing for the best glass films.
Its probably the final destination for all who are keen on learning about tinted window films.

TintDude.com Window Tinting

Have a look into their forum and see what they think about the films we use.

Great choice Monty. With 50% Heat Rejection, this film is a complete performer considering its cost.
