Hello, all of you seem to have used the nylon roll-up curtains. Have you been using them as a replacement for sunfilms or in addition to tints? Would you suggest I use them instead of sunfilms (my car does not have either)? In that case, will it reject heat as effectively @ shantanumishra?

Far more better than the suction cup folding types and very easy to affix on any car window and remove. These are made in Taiwan and have a push button for easy roll up. The brand name is Sunshade cool and is made by Macauto ind. co.
I think these are the best options and one does not have to fight with the suction cups as it rolls up and remains in that position without causing any view hindrance. Bought it for a extremly reasonable price of 600/- Rupees a pair
@ rahulraa you have mentioned that these don't cause any visibility problems, do you still feel so since it must have been some time you have driven with these installed. Do your curtains fit your windows completely or do these Taiwanese ones come in one size only? How long-lasting are these?

The price for a set of 4 as I mentioned earlier is Rs. 4650. The stick on ones (generic) are much cheaper at around 250-650 (local - tyvek).
The price quoted by the Amritras guys is what shreeps mentioned - Rs 4650. Would not mind trying out rahulraa's cheaper alternative at Milan subway. Since I am based out of Mumbai (and not Mumbao), guess will check out A1 automobiles for sure.

I am planning to opt for some shade for the side windows of a Jazz; but being a novice driver and also with all the hullabaloo around SC rulings, was wondering if curtains could be a sensible alternative to sunfilms.

Will those of you who have used the curtains suggest I got for these?

Any place in Bangalore selling the Milan Subway type curtains.

I have been looking for these window curtains for my Fiesta. I looked into the website of Amritras India Welcome to Amritras India.com, and found S.K. International in GP Road to be its dealer in Chennai.

Called up the numbers given and the person replied "Amritras are going to launch a new model of window curtains and this will take about 45 - 60 days to reach us. Please contact after 45 days."

After the phone call, i wrote a mail to Amritras India through "contact us" on their web site. Just received an automated reply "we will get back at the earliest".

Not sure if S.K. International is interested or if Amritras is looking at a strategy to increase price strategy after the SC order.

I had purchased a rather large rear windshield collapsible curtain for my Laura, which was a size too big for a good fit. It was even a size too large for the Accord. I intend to give it away (for free) if anyone can have it fetched from my place. It should be a greatfit for a D segment sedan.

What do you think of this product available at ebay.in

2 x Multi Fit Sun Shade Screens for Rear Car Window-TGW | eBay

No description on how to fit, etc., but the picture looks convincing.

Default Re: Where can I buy 'pull up' rear window sunshades?

Bumping up an old thread.
Inviting members to post updated pics of such sunshades, and perhaps alternatives that they have already installed/ seen installed.
Any known issues? since this is now a year and a half old thread.

Hi Manson, would like to reduce your burden if it still exists. Would it fit an Ertiga properly?

Default Re: Where can I buy 'pull up' rear window sunshades?

I have been looking for these kind of window curtains/shades myself for the last couple of months.

After some looking around, zeroed in on the ones supplied by Amritras India as they look elegant, albeit a little expensive. But I've tried all their NCR dealers, and nobody seems to have stock for Punto.

I called their head office, and the receptionist outright said "Stock is not available".
And when asked about a probable timeframe, she said she doesn't have an idea when these would be available.

Looks like Amritras isn't really bothered about these.

Terribly sorry about the rather late revert. Please check your inbox for pick up details.

Cheers,
