Hi Blue Thunder,
I'm also planning to buy similar kind of sun shade.
Hows ur experience with it? Does it really obstruct sun rays & heating of the car (inside)?
I've Optra. So I'm thinking to buy 2 (to cover front & rear both)
Will it help?

Thanks

I just bought this sunshade from Durga car accessory shop on Tilak road, Pune for 300rs. I noticed that it is bit smaller than my Beat's windscreen. Some part of the windscreen is outside the coverage of this sunshield. It may fit good to Maruti cars where the windscreens are not as slanted as Honda/Chevy cars.

Thinking of some DIY to get it to stick to the windscreen with minimum efforts.

NOTE: I have posted this in the LEGAL ALTERNATIVES to SUNFILM thread but re-posting here for benefit of members.

My colleague got this fitted in his brand new i20 & has similar shades in his Innova. This set of four units costs about 2.5K to 3K for i20.
The unit has to be screwed to the door and though some of us may not like the idea of making holes on plastic but I think they are worth the money.
The curtain part of each unit has to be custom made and it take about 2 hours for installation.
These ones were made in Sion Koliwada area in Mumbai.
If someone knows about similar product manufacturers then please post your findings.

These are similar to those provided by Amritras called P8 (I have them in my Civic). But the fit does not seem to be as good (especially the 2nd and 3rd pic). It is possible that the above are P8 but are a misfit (meant for some other vehicle or not properly installed). Same happened to me while I was installing in Civic. Dealer was offering City ones for Civic and I rejected them as they were not covering entire window. (Note that front side of front ones is intentionally not covered so that rear view mirrors are visible without obstruction). So if anyone is installing P8s ensure that your car model name is mentioned on the box else they do not cover the whole area.

Hot Tracks is advertising a brand of sun shades called LASER. Check this month's Autocar India.

Currently available for only a few models, that are also sold in other countries - like Montero, Pajero, Civic.

An update to silver sunshade for windscreen. Been using that for past 1 week, and it does the job good. The temperature inside is a lot tolerable than before. The steering and the dashboard are no more acidic hot to touch, even in direct sun. I will recommend it to those whose car is parked in sun. It takes 1-2 mins to install back though, yet to find a quicker way to put it on.

Checked this out with Hot Tracks for my Innova. They've quoted Rs.15,000 for a set of 7 pieces. However I'm not sure that this would be considered legal. Here's a link to the NSV Laser Shades : http://www.carlasershades.com/index.htm

Hi ariesonu, pls can you share the feedback of your colleague post this installation?
I've seen similar blinds in a few vehicles in Mumbai, there are a few concerns abt this method:
a) as you've also mentioned, drilling holes into the plastic, sounds painful. Not sure if it will work fine
b) there seems to be a hook that rides up and down with the glass pane. does the window close properly, even if the hook is present? am worried abt monsoons, where even a small gap can lead to water inside the car (parked or driving)
c) coverage of the blind on the window
I've also left a message on the Amritras website, no calls or mails yet. Till then its wait n watch.

I've tried out the suction cup ones but the cups generally lose their suction if the car is parked in the sun, so, no use.

Hi SA,
so far so good and we use his car on almost daily basis for port visits. The upper clip is no problem for monsoons too. He has been using same for last two years in his Innova with no damages. Matter of fact he has 4 year n 1 year old sons.
But yes it's indeed painfully about holes in plastic

Rgds,
Sonu

Anyone tried these - http://www.groupon.co.in/deals/shopp..._0_0_252&a=13? I think these don't need any drilling and use 3M tape to stick to the screen base to the window sill.

Brica Car Sunshades from USA, which is one of the world's most reputed brands in car sunshades, is now available in India. Just saw their ad in Autocar magazine. Had used it when I was in US. Though the international range is much more, there are 5 variants that the guys have launched in India. Seems pretty cool and have ordered from Snapdeal. Chk it out.

Very nice! Which of these did you pick up? Do you know if the pull down one is screwed on or stuck?

I don't know if this helps, but I for one hate using these curtains or suction cup based sunshades because they hamper visibility for me when I drive. I like to be able to have a clear view from every window in the car (entering a main road to join the other side can be tricky without any visibility from rear windows too). Also since my car does not have any issues with heating up perhaps because of good heat insulation, I genuinely did not need these.

However, when on inter city trips, especially on well constructed large, boring, long highways like the Hyderabad-Bangalore one, the sun just causes so much glare and while the rest of your body might feel cold, the climate control system does let that occasional ray of sunlight scattered across your face to burn your flesh I mean who are we kidding right? We live in a country so close to the equator. So I find cling on films to be very useful. Only ever needed to use them for long journeys so 5 minutes of time is only taken up at the start in applying them before you set off.

I encourage those of you who might feel like I do towards the curtains, to look up Jeep Cling Sunshade

Cheers!

I picked up "Brica Pop Open" and "Brica Stretch-to-fit". They are awesomeeeeeee !!! Stretch-to-fit is amazinggggg !!!!!!! Since the day I fitted it, atleast 50 people have told me thats its looking very beautiful. Very happy with the purchase....

Thankfully where there are loads of cheap Chinese products flooding the market, we also have such good quality US products available in India.
