I got 3M sun film as compliments when I took my i10 last week. the sun film is pretty good. But i kind of don't like the small logo "3M" which comes in the film, these almost come in the center of the glasses. when i asked why this was there, the guy who was fitting it said that there were lots of duplicate 3M films in the market and the duplicate ones don't have the marking. Don't know how true this is, though.

Yes, the 3M mark will be present only on the original 3M films. I dont see why it's bothering you. Unless you focus on the mark itself, you dont realize it's there.

Hi,

I had got 3M CT35 sun film fixed on my I10 Magna during the first service. But I immediately saw some air bubbles in the sun film. When I enquired with the showroom person, he mentioned that I can wait for 3 days and if the air bubbles are still seen he will replace the film. But my car rear glass has defogger and I am worried that peeling of the sunfilm may damage the defogger. Can somebody suggest what I should do now?

Its very difficult in Pb now with the high court order. You have to go to DTO/chief ministers office/Police commissioners office.
Only if you have a certain security level provided to you (for eg Z) then you are issued the permission

It is not advisable to remove the the film from the defogger lined rear windshield.

If its a small bubble,, live with it.. Else punture it and press it..

waiting for 3 days is not convicing.. after 3 days you will only see more and more bubble/spots on the films..

Oh. That is real easy. Murder some guy, win an election, get defeated in election by a senior politician, etc. Now claim you have a security threat against you.

but then if it is too visible/prominent, then that could be a duplicate too. Where did you install this & how much did you pay for it ?

If its the showroom, you should ask them to replace the defogger as well if it gets damaged.

Btw, how much did you pay for the film? I'm being asked for Rs3,400 for 3M by my dealer. And he is guaranteeing no air bubbles.

I am planning to install the sun film on my car in Germany on my own. The cost of the installation by a professional is too much.
Has anyone done this?. If yes please give me some inputs. I read the detailed procedure and watched some videos giving some tips for the installation.

Hi E_L, got it free (complimentary) when I took my new car the i10. The guys installing it had 3M logo on their uniforms. So I do hope that the film I got was original.

I was with the technicians when they were doing the installation in my car. It is a very meticulous process. The cutting of the film has to be precise. Also they use a hair-dryer kind of apparatus to gently heat the film so that it sticks with-out creating any air bubbles during installation.

Default Changing Sunfilm, will it damage defogger?

I have a question regarding changing my sun film in my car. It may be silly to ask this.

Is there a chance of damaging the defogger in the rare window of the car when the guys are working on removing and fixing a different sun film?

If yes, can anyone please tell me what is the solution?

I was told by one of the accessory guy that the defogger is built in the glass itself and it will not be damaged.

Please give me your opinion about it.

Thanks.

I think,the only problem is with local sunfilms,they leave the gum on the windsheild when removed,using a quality/branded sun film wont trouble you.
