    I had the Film, But removed it from all the side windows except the Rear Glass,
    As my Punto's glass itself is Tinted by 30%, many time was stopped by the cop, but even they were confused when they saw its not a film.
    Lucky to have this lot of Glass

    I don't know the law exactly but I have heard and read that there should be 70% visibilty through the side windows. That is not a problem as there are sun control films in the market which have that kind of transparency.

    I have 50% transparency film in my car and have had no issue's to date. My other cars have 70% films in them and they look like there is no film on them.

    Putting any sunfilm is illegal and better to not put any. The transparency % are for OEM tints allowed on windows.

    Look for some sun curtain which can be uses and removed.

    I was looking for the same and found out autofurnish window sunscreen. These are looking same as provided with stock for rear windshield.

    They claim it provides clear vision from inside and privacy from outside. Filtering sun rays for saving interior from harsh sun rays.

    Have a look at this link http://www.autofurnish.com/car-automatic-side-window-sun-shade-set-of-4pcs-for-fiat-linea

    Price : Rs 3399

    I personally like this product but finding it costly. PREMIUM CARS provide such screen as we have for rear on all doors.

    Hope above info will help you. If you order this then share your reviews here.

    Way to expensive for what it's worth. I bought magnetic ones for my punto for just Rs 600.00 for all four windows in Gurgaon. Supply is from Delhi, so should be available there also.

    Do they roll with the windows? It yes, I have to search for it then. It looks good.

    Last query please: how much are they effective as you can tell it better bearing delhi heat.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
