Congrats on the new car, like it's been discussed so much here, it is a real good choice. Good that you let your better half decide on the color, as long you get the car of your choice!
Your vkool front windshield sun film, does it have any tint or is it 100% transparent?

@nnandi: v70 has 70% visibility and a clear tint. It goes in the legal limit of front films.

Tinted films at the front aren't recommended as you will get in trouble with the cops and night driving would be hard. Check out the link below for some long discussions on front windshield sunfilm pros and cons.

Thanks SkyWalker for the info. Actually I had earlier gone thru' the thread on sunfilms (long thread I must say!). I want something which gives 100% visibility after putting sunfilm in w/s; I want only the heat to be reduced, not visibility. Anyways, this is OT; for the time being, you should bask in your glory of the city! Have fun! Cheers!

Congratulations on the nice buy, the car is looking awesome, especially from the front..
Upgrade the tires man and your concern about scrapping can be taken care of to an extent..

Enjoy the drive and keep updating us

IIRC, Vkool has an 85% visibility solution, but heat rejection drops from 56% to 35%. I would say you wont have a visibility issue with v70. If you are around ORR, feel free to drop me a PM and come and checkout how it feels in person.

Congrats Skywalker, that was one long wait. Good colour choice as well and a nice writeup.

On the full tank. I was talking to a driving instructor in Indiranagar RTO office and he said cars have to be full tank when delivered. there is some clause in the RTO manual/circular on delivery and all we need to ask for it to ensure that they give a tank full on delivering a new car. Even on a resale a car is supposed to have its tank filled before delivering the keys and RC book to the new owner. He said he had done that for many buyers who trained with him before buying a car. I remember reading a thread here about the same.

Congrats on your new car
And you daughter is cute.

P.S- I like this color better than the silver in ANHC.

Thats great that they have started providing the cover, do post a picture of the same.

I am sure that particular cover can fitted/placed on the first lot of ANHC which came without it. What are your thoughts on the same.
