Hi bro, Q70 should be no issue with Smart tag. You may try to use first. If after one week the smart tag still cannot detect, please send your car back to our HQ, we will check and fix for you. Thanks smile.gif

Dear all,

After reading many Lowyat postings and forum. I had decided to give my input too for the benefit of others. *Sharing is caring* smile.gif)

Currently using Huper Optik for 7 years. After 7 years, no bubbling or dust or whatsover. I would say is good as new.

However, seems there's some mixed review on 3M or Raytech or last but not least Huper Optik. I am finalizing my shots to either 3M or Raytech or Huper Optik. Both 3M and Raytech has similar price range but Huper Optik is middle range.

3M package is
Windscreen front: Crystalline 70
4 side window: Nano 70s (3 mil safety)
Windscreen back: Crystalline 70
Film type: Multilayer optical film
Warranty: 5 years
General IRR: 97%

Pro:
1. Multioptical film is higher range than ceramic
2. 3M installer is direct shop owner. So any complaint can settle easier rather than need to bring to HQ..bla bla bla

Cons:
1. Not quite scratch resistant i.e. kids using toys/keys to hit my window tint
2. Windscreen smart tag issue.

Raytech package is
Windscreen front: Ultra 70
4 side window: Raytech RX (4 mil safety)
Windscreen back: Raytech RC
Film type: Ceramic
Warranty: 7 years
General IRR: 98%

Pro:
1. Heat rejection seems to be better than 3M
2. Malaysia brand but manufactured in USA. So, perhaps you pay lower but get higher quality tint?

Cons:
1. Shops are owned by parent company. Anything need to deal in process...bla bla bla
2. Price slightly higher than 3M even though they are Malaysian brand

Huper Optik package is
Windscreen front: Ceramic 70 / Sech 60
4 side window: Huper Shield 40 (6mil)
Windscreen back: Ceramic 40/Ceramic 50
Film type: Nano Ceramic
Warranty: 5 years
General IRR: 80%

Pro:
1. Tried and tested for 7 years with no problem
2. Nano ceramic is higher spec than ceramic
3. Scratch resistant

Cons:
1. Huper Optik installer is direct shop owner. So any complaint can settle easier rather than need to bring to HQ..bla bla bla
2. Lowest IR compared to 3M and Raytech
This is for my new ride which will arrive next week. Once I settle with this ride, I will be using the same package for my next new ride as I am waiting it to launch..hehe

So the GOLDEN question:
As both 3M and Raytech are of the same range while Huper Optik is RM 500 lesser than both. What do you guys think?

Actually, does having to pay extra RM500 to get the highest IRR i.e. 97%~98% is actually an overkill ? Or having 80% IRR is good enough already? Normally I just park at the office and work but twice in a month will have outstation trips i.e. 5 hours drive

Kindly post your comment. I hope it will help others in my same position too.

can share the package price?

Ceramic based tint some have very good IR/heat rejection, causing smart tag problem, but I think that is about it.

VKool being metallic tint have a lot of issues. Of course, if you are not using GPS, smart tag, gate pass, or home gate remote, then these issues won't cause you any inconvenience.
If going to pay so much, why get VKool metallic tint which cause so much issue and inconvenience, especially to a driver who will be using GPS to navigate around, smart tag to pay toll, need to stick RFID outside the car and most importantly, inhibits adding more stress at the end of the day by hindering you from reaching your home.

Ayam using RayTech should be Metallic tint have problem with gate pass but no problem with smart tag?

GPS working with full signal? Or will jump around to different road nearby many times? VKool also working but detection is slow. Same car different tint same location, smart tag detect slow. My car when passing toll will show no smart tag, then only detected. Another similar car with other tints don't have this issue. It will detect, but need to slow down to 10km/h and slowly roll through, else it cannot detect smart tag at all.

gps mostly ok no jump often.
smart tag common i guess need to slow down.

i think if cant detect will never detect no matter what no? like gate pass really cannot detect unless wind down window.

i dont care about smarttag, i can slow down at toll booth or worst i can open my windows and stick out smarttag. the only thing important to me is the GPS.

from the reading i found that most of the

1. Vkool user has very good heat rejection and has GPS problem
2. HO user has average heat rejection and no GS problem
3. 3m user has good heat rejection and no GPS problem
4. Raytech has good heat rejection but has GPS problem
5. LLumar has good heat rejection but has GPS problem

Can some confirm this? if I'm wrong.

Not really a big problem for GPS.. I would say maybe 2 out of 10 times, that also if there are few parallel roads.

hi Sifus,

I am looking for some tinted advise
going to get my Iriz 2019 next few days, and surveying tinted
living in Klang, so saw Hamel ads going wild in FB,
then my friend intro Vessary car care for about RM600? got some heat rejection and window break proof? (what it call in english? lol)
need some advise~ own budget not that high, so ray tech those good brand maybe cant go for it.. T_T

I also looking at Hamel seems not bad and quite cheap.
I see all their products comes with 5mm security tint which most other brands does not have it for lower range film.

Seems like no competitor nobody commenting about this brand yet.
