Looks cool..

My installer said some people specifically avoid RE, as they don't want someone combing their hair looking at you..

On the contrary, I ensure I go in only for RE35 for all my cars and the ones bought in the family, for the excellent heat rejection it offers. As they say, each one to his own !

I too agree with rr_zen. Moreover I like the very clear view from inside without any specific color tone. It just reduces the glare.

Even I have RE35 on the sides and rear, and RE50 on the front. And I must say, I didn't expect them to be that good in heat rejection, but I am surprised! I think most dealers insist to go for CS series or higher because the profit margin is high for them. RE series is cheap, but its very effective, at least from my experience so far!

I have 3M RE35 on the sides(including the front quarter glasses) and rear while the front windshield is shod with CR70. Had taken the car first time for a long drive yesterday after installing the film and am extremely happy with the results. I was a little apprehensive about the visibility post fixing the CR70 on the front but yesterday's drive allayed all that. Posting some pics.

vasoo, rr_zen, RE35 is looking cool. Yes, RE series has better heat rejection than CS for a given VLT value.

@itnerd, IIRC, both RE and CS have same MRP.
