Slightly off topic....

As far as I know, right since the very beginning, HM sold the Contessa with Tinted Glasses (Including the windscreen) as standard fitment.

Anyone has any idea which cars these days have tints as standard fitment ?

secondly most underaged drivers know that they well get sc***** if they bang or something so they tend to drive more carefully.the ones that usually meet with accidents are those who drink and drive and i dont stand by that at all.here hes just driving and i see nothing wrong.senior member or newbie everyone is here to express their opinion.some may agree with me most wont.but i know a lot of people drove before they turned 18 some of the mods did too.so why not now?? just because we have passed that phase ??

There are film varieties made by Llumar, 3M and V-kool, that I know of, which claim to do the work of blocking glare, UV rays, etc, significantly, without being very dark at all. These are extremely expensive, in the region of 10-15K per car for sides and rear.
Anybody know whether these "clear" films work as well as claimed?
and what technology is used in their manufacture?

sk456 there are many options

and another big name i'm forgetting the name
and garware (lower end ones are avoidable).

Get a branded one and also get ur windscreen tinted it helps a lot in AC cooling with the delhi temperatures. All the brands come with different shades choose the one thats legit.


Ps. Looking forward to see to at the NCR Meet

Infractions: 0/1 (10)

have put 3M charcoal st35 on my nhc vtec which cost me Rs3000 and put garware sunfilm on my siena for 1200.the difference isnt that noticable....atleast not worth the 1800rs difference.
im not debating the quality of the 3M film but im just letting u know my observation.
the possible reason can also be that the nhc has a bigger greenhouse area and due to the excessive slant of the windshield it gets heated up more than the siena's interiors.
so in all probabilities the 3M wud be better.
