Hi Sifu,

Quoted RM1,750 for the below. Reasonable?

LLUMAR
T4-50 (SECURITY FILM)
๐Ÿš™Heat Rejection : 90%
๐Ÿš™VL Transmission : 50%
๐Ÿš™UV Rejected : 99%

3M - RM1388. Reasonable? Never use 3M before. Not sure whether the product is good or not.

FWS - CR70
Front side - CR50
Rear side + RWS - Ebony 40

Manage to claim warranty for my raytech film, without question, except for normal inspection. This is a very good plus point.

However, when I ask why it got peeled off just after 2.5 years, they give me this reply: "due to excessive car washing. When we wash the car, we will wipe inside of the windshield. So the multiple wipes + the dirt/chemical on the cloth makes it peeled off". To be frank, i really do not see this coming from a so called professional car tinter. What a whole load of bullshit answer. One of the most stupid explananation i ever heard in my life. I just lost the mood to talk more on this, else my temper gonna rise up.

Next, I request for a solar meter test on my car film (raytech always promise their customer on this test). And I was denied, even when i request 3 times. Reason? Is due to inconsistent sunlight (it is very sunny that time), and the meter is too sensitive. Bloody hell, another cb answer i get.

I just drove off my car after this, after they replace the film. On my way back, i touch my dashboard after 10 mins driving in aircond, and the dash board is hot like f***. Take note i am installing the highest range product that cost 3k (ultra 70 + rx).

Conclusion, this will be my first and last time with raytech. The products do looks good on paper, but in actual usage is very bad. I feel like i am being scammed. I will definitely not recommend this brand to any forumer, friends and family members.

Lord Gitsy, this is a major disappointment. Btw, i am glad for your support even though my car was tinted in other states/branches. Thanks for the explanation and advice. But raytech products really does sucks, so do their customer service.

Which branch raytech?

Same here. Bought a 2016 HRV tinted w 3M crystalline still immaculate condition. Pity had to tear off front windscreen for Puspakom.

Really suspect plenty of installers using fake 3M out there

at least u can save the rear window and rear windshield as per the latest VLT requirement. The front passenger can as well if follow VLT. The front 70% VLT, most will put darker hence failed.

If anyone in KL, Melaka or JB is interested in getting their car tinted, I recommend to check out Alva Concept Store. They specialize in car tinting, coating, painting, but they also sell car accessories as well.

Prices are reasonable and they're currently having promotion ~50% off their normal prices, with warranties ranging from 5 years to lifetime warranties!

Got my new Myvi 2022 tinted using Alva DY series that is from the US and using nano ceramic film with lifetime warranty at ~RM1.8k (normal price is 3.6k), IRR 98%, UVR 99.9%, UV block 400nm, 4mil security film (this is their highest spec tint).
Verified the specs using the infrared scanner machine post-tinting and turns out to be true.
Also GPS and SmartTag-friendly (verified on NS Highway).

P.s. You can use my code "JVD7250" for an additional 15% discount.

Feel free to PM me for further enquiries!

I believe u will letgo the car in the next 1-3 years. If it so, local brand with top spec (IRR, TSER) is more than enough

Hi Sifus, I would be getting a Mazda soon and apparently it comes with Skytint or something that Mazda puts by default, like it or not.

I haven't heard very good things about the tint however, its still very hot despite there being a tint.

But is there any Mazda users here that could advise on this please? If i should change to a better tint, which should I go for please, any specific brand and range? Also, would it be advisable to double tint or remove the existing tint entirely?

Thank you

The rest windows spec is ok, if follow spec, 97% IRR iinm. The culprit is the windscreen at 55% IRR.

If budget just change the windscreen tint to better spec only. Most owners change the windscreen tint + double tint all

Your whole car previously installed Horus tint? How was the tint performance? Tint back ur front windscreen with Horus tint?
