So the glare is reduced. What about the Cellphone reception inside the cabin after the installation? is it the same or the signal level is reduced?

Thumbs up Heat and glare reduction

So far, I haven't faced any issues with cell phone reception.

Apart from the glare reduction, the heat reduction is also good. Whenever I used to get into Jeez's getz, when it was parking in the sun, it used to be unbearable, of course, his car never had any sunfilm on the front. I had noticed similar effect with my car. Without the sunfilm's I had to open all windows and stand out side for few minutes just to reduce the heat. Now it doesn't get half as hot as it used to

I suggest you check the same thing with 3m and Llumar films, if it is the same then they just might be value for money then V-kool, I just didn't know any good installer for 3m or llumar.

Love the keychain. Nice seat covers too!
Get the seat cover tightened for the driver's seat... seems like the fit is not perfect!

Thanks bro. i20's pickup isn't as good as compared to a fabia, got used to it though. I guess, it must be the same will Linea. when I wrote the thread I hadn't even driven for 500kms. Those were ashley's views. Personally I've never driven a Linea.

I drove ashley's skoda laura petrol and sat in the Curze while TD, although I didn't drive the cruze; heck both the cars took off like a rocket amazing!

Congratulations on a brilliant car and the colour scheme, I am sure you love it because I for one, am absolutely smitten!

IMHO, top end variant of i20 could rival any D segment sedan in terms of comfort, luxury, and rich feel. This is one Hyundai car that is worth every penny.

Enjoy your ownership of this truly magnificent car and I sincerely hope that you have many a pleasant memories with the little beauty.
