hey guys, my dad has the new facelifted camry. he wants to tint the car. as he is in penang, he went down to neuton auto. they quoted him 2100 for v-kool elite and 2800 for the security film feature. few questions:

1. what is the best tint brand at the moment? dont want a tint that changes colour and gives problems in the future. also, want a tint that will not make smart tag and gps harder to use. the shop also recommended huper optik. whats your take on it? a quick read up of the last few pages suggest that 3M is also a good option. How does v-kool, huper optik and 3M compare?

2. Whats a good place to tint the car in Penang. Workmanship is most important.

3. Is it worth paying extra for the security film.

Cheers

Was looking for llumar tint and found that there is one called llunar. Look the same, sound the same, and the llunar website does not seems to be useful. Does anyone has any idea on this??

Apparently llunar has their own brand of tint, other than dealing for llumar. The SA quote a slight cheaper pricing for llunar.

Anyone here has tinted llunar instead of llumar film?? Wonder if there're any difference.

Just wondering, my new car comes with lousy stock tinting. Will removing the old tint at the tint shop damage the rear windscreen demister?

I use air cool premium on the front screen with 85% sun block. I realy disappointed and feel being cheated coz it cant block the sun heat at all. I went back to the shop (pandah indah) and complained to the agent and he said, 'when u start the air cond ur car will be cool (for me its a stupid answer)..
The purposed of tinted is to block heat from panetrate into the car when i park undr the sun (my opinion) and to avoid front dashboard from damage occur by the sun radiation. I waste rm600 for it.
Now i looking on other tinted alternatif brand like 3M, i heard it has a good reputation
So air cool not as cool as its name.. Ashamed

hey guys, this thread really surprise me on how ppl percept about window tinting and have no doubt on 3m and v-kool's brand image. Allow me to share some of my personal experience throughout these years and at different country. There are more than 30 different tinting film branding out there, and frankly speaking they all work. The value of the film can only be justify over 2 aspects, whether on its quality or material in it. Whatever branding and technology that were mentioned, proven how efficient that its marketing and advertising program works.

I dont know about the others, but I judge it through 1st. where is it made? 2nd. whether is it 1 ply, 2 ply, reflective, security or I.R. film? 3rd its infared rejection, how many %? 4th. I will request to test the film, either thru the 3m film tester or spotlight.
Why where is it made? The twist is obviously about its quality, but also the glue that was used in between. That is why 3m film paper will cost u atleast 2k just to tint a car, 2 major elemets that they are famous and proud of. It is also important for u to understand that the film is 1ply, 2ply, reflective or I.R. film ? to me.. 1ply = something normal, keep my budget low and yet able to block the sunlights. I dont really mind even it has lower infared rejection because I still have my air con with me in the car. 2ply = better quality, little extra and I get more ingredients in the meal, just like the maggie goreng kosong and normal maggie goreng. I.R film are commonly being used in the big brands company, usually have 60% and above on its infared rejection. I rarely look at uvlights protection because is not that important in malaysia, but is vital for country like Australia.In Australia, they dont have big brands like v-kool, a-cool, eco-tint, besides 3m (noone beat 3m ..) that able to dominate the nation market. The consumers are more aware of the warranty and effectiveness instead of branding. Similar question I will ask you guys, can you assure me that company A and company B's tinting film are not made by the same manufacturer? or can you be firm to answer me that Company's B tinting film is not as good as Company A's, just because that company A is more expensive and well known than company B?
Sometimes when you tested the film with d spotlight, the result might impressed you. Lastly, A tinting package that cost you 400-500, and a package that cost you 2-3 times more really make alot different?

not really, if ur 2nd layer is just to intend to make it darker without losing the effects of wingard layer. 2nd layer u may just go for the cheapest black colour, even if you have problem with jpj and you can still peel the 2nd layer off. easy

the car tint business is quite a profitable-margin business.. you'll know if you go direct and source the raw materials yourself.. that's why you see that the car-tint business is mushrooming fast..

if you do happen to use radio-wave devices in the future (i.e TnG, autogate, GPS, etc)... try to avoid metalized tint.. for this type of tint will greatly reduce the reception/transmission of your devices..

yes, a hight IRR is a nice to have thing (but at a price).. but remember, generally, your car body is made up of 100% metal (exclude the plastic parts).. and under the hot sun, metal contribute to heating up your car as well..

I tried Hüper Optik 70 and I don't like the result. It's not as clear as 3M one.

I used Hüper Optik on my windshield because I wanted better compatibility with SmartTAG but the clarity is horrible.

The tint shop replaced the windshield back to 3M for me. Now go through SmartTAG have to almost come to complete stop. Wait... tiada SmartTAG>>>wait few more seconds>>>baki...

3M can pass SmartTAG, but difficult and slower.

During peak hours when there are many cars, I just wind down the window to use the SmartTAG.

3M Crystalline 70 is definitely very clear.

fortunately you only use TnG... because you don't use it all the way..

when you happen to start using a GPS.. a device that you need to constantly activate it, on the go.. then you'll regret the kind of tint that reduces the "accuracies" of your GPS.. because of the poor signals

so it's helpful to plan ahead (e.g you may never thought about using a GPS today, but you'll never know.. 5 years down the road.. and 5 years, your car tint will still be there)

Sorry... Should have edited my earlier post. I use SmartTAG all the time. With current 3M, if too many cars oncoming from behind/peak hours, I'll wind down the window to pass by the toll gate faste with SmartTAG.

I think with the new ceramic tint films, GPS reception is no big issue.

I have been using Garmin 265WT and 765T in cars with V-Kool elite (metal based) and 3M Crystalline (ceramic based). No problems with reception with constant usage. Pick up signal also fast. I don't have experience with other brands of GPS.

I'm not sure which tinting has issues with GPS.
