    On Western Express Highway, I've not yet seen cops stopping vehicles for films. May be because my car doesn't have it so I might not have come across. But overall also Mumbai members have not yet reported.

    Keep your fingers crossed, wait for a few days & pray that someone takes a stay.

    In Mumbai traffic, it's actually not very difficult to dodge/ avoid cops. You stay in the middle line, never be right at front at the signals, keep your car surrounded by other cars and in all probabilities, you'll get saved.

    I think any law is not strictly enforced in non metros,in small towns and cities.Not even a single person removed the sun film from their windows in my place,they don't even know about the supreme court ruling.
  5. I removed my Rs13K Huperoptik sunfilms yesterday night, I used rectified spirit and soft tooth brush to remove it but yet ended up on getting few scratches here and there.
    Film came as one piece and glue had to be worked on to remove it, over all it was 3.5 hours of work.

    I removed the sunfilm on the seven glasses on my punto today morning! It came out pretty easily. i was having to pull it with some strength as it was stuck nicely. used a small knife to pull out a small part before it can be pulled by hand.

    The bootlid glass had dealer installed garware sunfilm where as all other glasses had 3M. The 3M ones came out cleanly without any remains of glue but the garware one left bit of black marks which i cleaned using colin without much effort!

    It took around 15-20 minutes. saved 300 rs :) there was an indica taxi driver next to me looking in amusement. he was asking whether it is coming out easily. he told he spent rs 400 for it!

  8. Now in chennai , the cops are stationed in front of IT campus .. Yesterday and today I saw cops on Rajiv Gandhi Salai road ( where RMZ Millenia is) and stopping almost all cars .
    Yesterday and today too they stopped me and on seeing that I have clear windows on Left side they left me free .

    Note : I have not removed tints from my rear window and also from driver side window ( CS 35 series) .Also my windshield sunfilms are intact ( CR70). Still all the 3 times that I was stopepd till now , cops were not having any issue with these tints . Though it look awkward with tint on driver side glass alone I will keep it till our meet .But no plan to remove the tints from rear window .

    Agree, though i have doubt how many cars they can check/fine for violation, considering most of the time traffic is so heavy, but i do see this time normal people do started removing themselves. Lots to happen more.
