Is there any lifespan for tint? My v-kool like not so kool anymore after 8years. >.<
Any cheap and legal tint to recomend?
*
Yes, of course every product have their life span. Its depends on various reason

1. How you take care of it
2. How often you park your car under hot sun
3. How often you use the car
4. How ofter you wind up and down the windows

Basically in my opinion, you are paying RM2000 ++ for V-Kool and it last for 8 years
This is worthy investment tongue.gif

If you want cheap, get it from Groupon or Dealmates but the quality is just below average.
JPJ only allowed >70% VLT for FWS, >50% VLT for side and BWS. Thats consider as legal tint.

After following and reading this thread since V1 Pg. 60 onwards.  My 2 cents on top 3 BEST Tint in No particular order. 

1) Huper Optik C70 front and Back and C40 side

2) Raytech Centurion 4 mil OR 6 mil. 
Budget Alternative CS85 5 mil. OR CS75 4 mil.
- 7 years warranty is a Bonus.  They have Complete range to suit your budget.

3) 3M Nano 70S with Crystalline 70 front.

OTHER Brand/tint? 
Proceed with caution. Avoid Groupon/Webuy/Ilovediscounts tints as they have Hidden costs or they will MAKE you upgrade for better quality tint.  One customer ended up paying RM688 instead of RM288 cause is D-segment car and sweet-talked to upgrade to Higher quality IRR tint).  Good thing no cheap.

  These above 3's ENDORSED and Highly recommended by my Customers.  (I sell new cars).  V-kool standard dropped and COST very high.  Llumar is Good but MANY Imitations.
*
I understand VKool cost very high as well. One of the reason most SA do not promote not due to low standard of our film. It just that the commission margin for them is low tongue.gif

How come a lot of brands offer VLT <60% only and still JPJ compliant?
A lot of cars come with factory glass that has about 75% VLT already. If tint side window with 60% VLT tint also will become illegal right? 0.75 * 0.6 = 0.45 which is less than 50% VLT allowed by JPJ.

So far based on my survey only 3M can offer 66% VLT security tint for side windows and 68%% VLT for back wind shield, with good IRR.

Front wind shield totally cannot tint, any tint found on the market will it <70% VLT.

Edit: Just found out VKOOL also has tint similar to 3M but only the top range ones.
*
Again, we normally cover JPJ if our film VLT is within their rules.
The only troublesome is the PUSPAKOM

My SA told me that latest Vkool Elite now comes with security feature too, other than heat rejection. This is the "latest" version of Vkool Elite. Anyone can confirm if this is true?

Thanks for any response.

Yes, VKool Premier 6Mil. Just launch it 3 months ago

Hi bro, thx for for your reply. My salesman not mention about the e-warranty at all. But, it is not 2 piece film, see my  pictures carefully.Crystalline 50 - 6mil, Crystalline 70 - 6mil, RE70 - 6mil and ST 70 - 5mil is actually one piece of film. After go through some survey, I think that dealer is selling fake 3M to me. I am very disappointed with my salesman and that 3M dealer. I wondering how many 3M dealer is also selling fake 3M product nowaday. Anybody can recommend V-kool, Huper Optilk, or Raytech to me. I am taking my Goft GTI next month. Must be good price and original product.Thx smile.gif
*
Please beware, there is a lot fake 3M in the market. As I know 3M do not have safety film.
Their best product is Crystalline series and always have issue with Smart Tag

The safety series that you see might mix with HOME BRAND

Hello guys!

New user of LYN and will be getting a Mazda 6 soon. I have been offered tinting service (prior to delivery - as it appears that there is only one vendor which can do for Mazda before delivery) for a hefty price. The proposed tint is VKool Elite FWS/BWS and Armorcoat for Side Windows.

Anyone able to comment on the price range for the proposed tint? And if I change it to Vkool Elite FWS/BWS and VKool 55 for Side Windows?

Appreciate the help!
*
VK Elite + VK 55 is definitely is better than VK + Armorcoat

Pricing - RM 3000 ++ vs RM 2000 ++
Performance - IRR 96% vs IRR 70%
Strength - High Rejection, No Safety vs Low Rejection, Got Safety

anyone knows about purple color tint film ?

You can find the film at car accessories shop. I think the price is cheap too.

Your 1st layer film warranty will definitely void.
As for the film, I expect the color will fade after 1 or 2 year

Hey guys, anything to take note before sending car for tinting? Mine is a 2007 Toyota Camry. Is it able to do full tint with mid-range specs for under 1k? Because car is old now, probably selling it off within a year or two. Tinting is a must do because the rear window's tint is quite ruined (Right Cool) and it's about 6+ years. Car recently got a new coat of paint and replacing the tints will make the car look a lot nicer. Any advices, sifu?

You can look mid range at groupon.
Please be aware that your back windscreen demister might come off when try to remove the tint

Its like betting on "Big & Small" depends the technician skill to remove the old film.
If you have insurance cover for windscreen then is good biggrin.gif

I've jz finished a tint job on my baby, and it looks F***ING DARK... When I was in the shop I saw a tint like 75%, it wasn't all that dark, in fact it looks JPJ passable at least. When I went to collect my car at night, damn, do I have trouble driving it.... It's a pain driving at night =_=.. Since its my first time doing tinted I learnt my lesson... I know its impossible to lighten a tinted... I have to peel it and re-tint my side and front window to 40%

Bro, you make mistake here.

You should put the sample near to your glass windows look at it
different angle because your glass is not 100% transparent.

Do the side windows' tint take twice as long for it to cure compared to the front and back windscreens?
*
Yes, because FWS and BWS normally is 2Mil film and curing period is about 2-3weeks
For side, depends on the thickness of the film and normally 4Mil will take about 1-2 month to cure.

Anyone ever heard of Winshield window tint specialist? was recommended by my SA for tint, however the only info that i can get is their website and facebook page.

and nobody has ever review or give comments whether it is good, cheap, expensive or giving any problems after installation.

seriously need opinion or info about window tint since its my first time.

website page--> http://www.winshield.com.my/home

facebook page --> https://www.facebook.com/winshieldtrading

thanks

This is HOMEBRAND, thats why no much international info for this "Winshield"

Thanks for the input.

On the other hand, are the white spots at the sides curable?
*
Yes, we call it as shampoo mark. Normally it appear on Safety Film
This is because shampoo chemical reaction with the film adhesive (glue)

It might take up to 3 months for all the shampoo mark disappear depends on the weather and thickness of the film.
If the shampoo mark still there after 6 months, you can go back to shop and ask for warranty claim.
