Sunfilm color is a personal choice. If you want jazzy colors, Garware Classic is the only way out. MPL has a Garware card with various colored film. Take a look at it. I have Garware Classic Gray on my car.

Thanks, no noise or vibrations so far. No engine noise when the windows are up and audio is on. A small bit of noise creeps in when audio is off but not that noticeable

You can check out here - At Xenos (subsidiary of Pricol) - just 2 buildings (Restaurant - Signal - Navins head office) west of MPL at the HP - COCO bunk outlet. They do a good job and give warranty. They show the light intensity by switching on a power lamp behind each shades and the percentage of light blocked by the respective sun film. I forget the brand they deal.

Weekend havent driven much, had to be at home for household chores. Saturday did a drive for about 30 odd kms, initally the diesel noise was getting louder as the drive progressed, the sounds vanished well almost. Tried checking the steering, the results were inconclusive. Vehicle does veer left but only after about 15 meters or more, no pain in the arm.
Also, i got the pillows for the lower back and neck, now no pain watsoever. I guess having driven bikes all time and moving to car does require some adjustments. Sunday again only about 40 odd kms was planning for a long ride, had to change plans. Ride is getting better and better, i am keeping the rev between 1.5k to 2k, occasional 2k plus in first or second gear. 4 and 5th gear needs to be kept above 1.5k for effective power output. thats my take so far.

3M does not sell colored sun film. If you want color like the orange or blue that you were talking about, get Garware.

@scorpio, Congrats on the Red Figuu. I had installed Re35 for windows and rear at Adyar Mahalakshmi car jewels for Rs.4000/- as well. They had done a neat job for my Figo. Last weekend, we went to Annanagar to install the same sun film for my friends Swift, came to around Rs.3750/-

Just started enquiring about it, except me no one is interested in color so would probably go the normal shade types.
@ebiz will check it out.

Also, checked at a shop in GP road, 3250 for 3M there quote was, am a bit confused where to get it done
