I assume the installer cut some area for u. It wont work smoothly for tint with 97% irr where the smart tag use infrared to send signal

Definitely not. I told him to tint full front windscreen and not to do cut anything and I will try if smart tag works.

I'm not sure why it works for me but here's my guess:
1) the toll booth receiver was upgraded so more sensitive
2) drove at 10-15km/h when passing the toll booth
3) battery in smart tag was full
4) using the older thick smart tag which is apparently more powerful
5) driving X50 which is higher off the ground


Only way to know for your situation is to test it out. Any other folks with 3M crystalline 70 for front windscreen can share experience?

I was quoted rm2k for all 3m crystalline for d segment car last time, kota Damansara branch. Reason not opted for it, smart tag, remote gate issues which they suggest to cut some hole in order to work.

Btw check the shop if they provide original 3M warranty or e-certificate iinm, cz many fake 3M on market hence cheap price. Some only give shop paper warranty

How would we know if the warranty given is genuine or not? Since there are many fake 3M products as you mentioned, I suppose if they can fake the tint, they can also fake the warranty cert (high resolution color printing is widely available to anyone nowadays), even e-warranty can be faked too right?

I am just wondering, since someone here mentioned the end quality of tinting car window is 50% product, 50% workmanship, if the installer somehow screwed up a bit on the installation (which is the workmanship part), would 3M headquarter consider that as part of their product warranty?

Just like if I buy a Panasonic aircond which comes with 1 years warranty, and then my installer screwed up the installation, resulting in leaky gas, I suppose Panasonic would ask me to get my installer to fix it, as that is not Panasonic's problem, right?

I received an e-warranty directly from 3M Malaysia Sdn Bhd in my registered email and printed from the website. For my case, two days after installation, I noticed a tiny scratch on one of the windows and the applicator immediately replaced the tint no questions asked and asked me to sign a form to claim the 3M warranty.

For 3M tint you can find authorized dealers on their website: https://www.3m.com.my/3M/en_MY/automotive-w.../find-a-dealer/

If you want to question if website is genuine or not then I no comment liao.. Generally, price is an indicator whether warranty is genuine.. if it's too good to be true, it probably is.

If on the 3M website then safe lah; don't worry so much. Standard 3M Crystalline e-warranty is 5 years.

Then makes sense lah. Your package don't have rear windows, rear windscreen and sunroof so half the tint area and about half price. If you take full package 2xRM1288 = RM2576 is about correct price without sunroof.

in west Malaysia it should be about +-2k for an Ativa. EM should be lesser than 3k for sure.
