I completely forgot to update the thread about this, however better late than never.

So few months back i installed sun-control films for the Fortuner @ 3M Mulund;

The Brute-Fort: My 2016 Toyota Fortuner 4x4 M/T, Now upgraded with BF Goodrich T/A KO2-img_20181129_143939.jpg

Its a combination of RE 70 (Windshield) & CR 70 (All Other Glasses)

Total Cost was aprox INR 18k (Inclusive of Taxes) + got 3 Car Wash Coupons Free

Overall effectiveness is good & its a nice feel good factor during the summers, also the tint level is may be 10-15% darker than stock

Since its just 10-15% darker than stock, is it noticable. I mean can the traffic police spot it easily?

It is noticeable to be honest, but still doesnt catch the eye of the cops as most so called VIP or Politician owned Fortuners/Innovas flaunt jet black tints which the cops are so used to seeing. So in comparison this is just like stock & thankfully haven't been stopped by the cops yet

Karan I didn't see your brake pads being changed till 30k kms. Have they lasted this long?
Also what is the cost of a set of front brake pads? I can see it listed for approx Rs.5.3k. So is the whole set of front brake pads for both left and right for 5.3k?

How is the truck doing as of now? Any more experimentation with the tire pressures?

Yes, they surprisingly did last longer than i expected. But i think at the next service the front pads may need to be replaced as per the previous service thickness reading.

Not sure of the exact amount, but the pricing is usually for a set.
Rear set should be relatively cheaper though.

Great, i am currently following 29 psi for solo drives & 30 psi for a loaded car.

The car looks as good as stock. Hence chances of cop trouble will be low. I have read all your ownership threads and I must say all of them are beautiful written. Wish you many more miles with this beast.
