Which sun film do you recommend if the car has leather interiors? (something not with a steep price tag) Please let me know the cost too.
Do we need to put sun film on the windshield ? Does it help?
if its art leather it will get quite hot in summers so choose a slightly darker shade and 3M is a good brand and it will cost you in the range of 1K for 4 windows and rear. I suggest leave the front windhshield alone.
The following BHPian Thanks mobike008 for this useful post:
Excuse me, does 3m come for just 1k ?? mobike, yoiu might want to correct that.
AFAIK, it comes for that price mebbe a couple of hundred more but as you rightly pointed out, whether its actually a 3M or not maybe suspicious
In my entire car driving span of 16 years, i always bargained sunfilms as part of the car buying deal and never paid for it till date but, i do enquire prices of various accessories all the time so thats how i know
@Sudip: Are you 100% sure, because the dealer himself has suggested this...
In case, this guy is trying to con me (which is obvious if what u say is true), how can i make sure whether this is part of the company provided car?
In this hugely cost cutting world where everyone is trying to increase their profit margins, something like under body anti-rust coating by manafacturers is highly doubtful as they leave quite a few things to be taken care as after market accessories ( to make even more money !!! )
Dealers keep a high margin on that job, so they push for it. Ask someone in the auto industry for an unbiased view. A cheap car will have a cheap underbody protection but no car will have zero protection. Maruti's original protection is good for two monsoons.
But end of the day it's your money.
thanks mobike008, yes it can be done...but my problem was that here i read somewhere in team-bhp that in bangalore, there are very few places where they have people to install it properly. I had also read that there is a store which deals particulary in sun films. I was just looking for it, yes if i don't find it, then i will follow your suggestion. Thanks anyway...
Listen to everybody but follow your heart. Go for it if your heart wants it. Ensure that you get to see what they are doing - whether dealer workshop or outside. Though, putting a coat of paint on an existing coat is not really a scientific thing to do (bonding on smooth surface isn't good), but I know what is going through your heart - "I want to give my car the best I can". Go for it.
