Did anyone else had a similar problem and what was the solution offered?
My friend had similar problem in his car. His 3M film was totally peeled off and re installed. The warranty is against peeling off. just go to the dealer and speak your mind off. He will do the same

little ramble... how come nobody has introduced sunfilm that works like Transitions lenses for spectacles? it would be the perfect sunfilm. dark when there's too much light outside and light when there's too little.
it doesn't look like a technical impossibility. agreed that there might be a premium to pay but I'd sell an arm and a leg to get something like that if available.

greater light transmitted => greater visibility. so they are directly proportional if not the same.

Cause the Photo-chromatic Lens/Glasses are very very expensive and they are Fragile.

On a similar thought I use to wonder, why big car companies make the front windscreen powered with your Spectacles value glasses, so you can enjoy the drive without wearing glasses

Hello,
The dealer is offering a free 3M sunfilm fixing on my Altis. It seems it comes in three waranty periods - 1 year, 2 year and 3 year. The dealer initially said that he will be fixing a one year warranty thing and I picked 3M CS35. Later, I negotiated and asked him to put the 3 year one for no extra cost... My questions are:

1) How can we distinguish between the 3-year warranty one and 1-year?
2) Is CS35 a good shade for a champagne coloured Altis?

Cheers,
Ajith, Bangalore

But you will need to carry co-passengers with same optics.

I guess you cannot unless you see the packing

Ajith,

The 3M sun films come with a warranty card. The different brand each have their own warranty cards stamped by the company. So, if you have made an upgrade from one to another it will appear on the warranty card.

Just be sure you check it with the dealer prior to the install if possible.

Cheers,
gpa

I am going for a 3-year warranty CS-35 finally. Those people are not upgrading to the three-year one so I have to pay the difference in price :(

Hi Guys,

I have Llumar installed on my Swift. I am using neutral 50 on the sides and rear (Rs. 4500) and Air 75 on the front (Rs. 6000). However my windsheild recently cracked due to an impact from a pebble and had to have it changed so have to again install the front windsheild flim.

However, my friend recently installed Garware film on his new Silver Honda City and this film has amazing looks and gives a sort of a slivery reflective look which has totally caught my fancy. He paid only 2k for the sides and rear with no tint on the front windsheild. I would like to know if Garware is better than Llumar as a product and if if i should change to Garware. I am totally happy with Llumar but Garware seemed to have a better look on my friend's car than the Llumar installed on my car.

Do you advise the change from Llumar to Garware?

Regards,

Epic

Epic : Llumar is always better than Garware as long as Llumar is not fake !
