My Scorpio too has the same Garware Classic on the side and rear glasses. And I am very happy about its effectiveness in the Nagpur summer (upto 47/48 degrees Celsius). I have not yet decided as to whether I should go for the Garaware Alpss or the Ice Cool Shield for the front windscreen. How much did the Garware Ice Cool Shield for the front windscreen cost you? What about night driving? Does it affect the night visibility?

Going by the specs and shade posted by a member regarding Alps, it seems that both Ice Cool Shield and Alps are the same. Give me a day's time and I'll confirm the difference between the two. In the meanwhile I would request you to please put up the specs of both these films along with MRP and the shade as well.

The MRP was Rs.2,820 and you can bargain on this. I've heard that the MRP has gone upto to 3k or more. It's a light shade and doesn't hinder visibility so it's never a problem driving during the night or during heavy rains.

I got it installed from my trusted installer next-door in Lajpat Nagar. He takes special care of the install when it's my car or my friend's. PS: I got the film on my own and got it installed from him though he does stock the basic Garware and other films. The latest he got was Solar Gard and it was genuine as I personally checked the Importer's details (Xenos). If you want the number let me know, I'll post it here.

The quote I am getting for side and rear is 4k for 3M RE35/RE50/RE70 and 5800 for CR70 for front windshield.

Please also PM me your name so that I can give him your reference.

Yes, Please post the number so that I can contact them for my install.
When I checked in Gurgaon, the price for Ice Cool Shield was 2800/- and for Alps it was 3300/-. I was told that this is recently launched and the packing had the manufacturing date as Feb 2010.

I would like to install a sun film on the wind screen of my Alto. My requirements:

1) Reject as much heat, glare and UV as possible.

2) Minimum / no distortion under night or low light conditions.

3) Cost as little as possible, with a life of at least five years. My budget will be 5k at the most.

I already have 3M sun film installed at the sides and the rear wind screen though can't remember the specs.

Garware classic for the sides and back Rs 1600/-

Installation is good.

I have driven the car up to night 1.30 AM on two occasions on highway after installation. It is ok. No problems

@rkg, is there any appreciable difference in the cooling performance during peak hours after getting those sunfilms installed? Even i have got an Indica, so asking.

I had visited Batra Care Care in Sector 14. It is near Karim and Atul Kataria Chowk. I have heard that they are good.

Thanks.

I have been to that place for wheel alignment after reading about him on Team-BHP.

Just wanted to confirm if someone has got premium films installed from there and how is the installer ?

@Gansan: I suggest you go in for 3M CR70. I have it on my Civic and the heat rejection qualities are commendable. The visibility is not at all compromised too. I spent 6K for it but since yours is an Alto, it should work out cheaper. If you are on a real tight budget then RE70 (guess that is what was told to me, need to recheck though) should serve the purpose. I was quoted 3.5K for my Civic. Since I propose to have the car for a lifetime, took the plunge and went in for CR70.

Yes,

I have been going through all the possible threads for last couple of days and reached to the conclusion that CR70 is the best windshield film.

Will get it done on my Civic in next couple of days.

The only concern is that my Gurgaon Toll Tag might not be accessible after putting this film.

rrzen,
can you also suggest good installers?, or the place where you got it installed?. Iam looking at 3M. CR70 or RE70 based on my Vitamin -M factor to install it this month.

Chennai heat is deadening man!!!
