Nothing can beat the vkool v40 in heat rejection ! Crystalline is Infact only an entry level quality !

Really? Based on some numbers I saw on the other tint thread 3M Crystalline may be better than Vkool 40.

In what way is HO C40 better than your vkool 40? Because you said "But Vkool heat rejection more geng".

Crystalline is clear coat rite?

Clear coat?

3M Crystalline is not a coating but a tint film. Darkness depends on which film you choose, if you want dark then go for Crystalline 40 (which would be similar darkness to HO C40 and vkool 40).

I have called up few dealers previously (5 years ago)  and the prices are all different. One dealer charged RM1,500 while another dealer can charge RM2,600. The difference was that big. It may sound weird but that's the true scenario at that time. I'm not sure if the dealers now charge at a uniform rate or the prices are still different between the outlets.
*
I believe still the same nowadays for all brands. It's not a uniform price and it will vary by outlet. So still need to shop around to compare.

Thanks for the tip! The haze is quite irritating especially under direct sunlight and at night; as the haze will diffuse and amplifies any incoming light, makes it much glaring compared to non-tinted glass. Fingers crossed that it will go away soon and I won't have to retint it.
*
How is your haze issue now?

As for HO C70, after 2 days of using and passing 8 toll plazas, initially for the few toll plaza the Smart Tag works, though a bit slowly, but after that it just stopped working under the C70 HO tint, battery life of my Smart Tag still good, so now I have to wind down window and hold up the Smart Tag to make it work.
*
Strange why your Smart Tag worked initially but then did not.

Anyway, do keep us updated after you have checked with Huper HQ.

FYI, just another price reference for Huper Optik: 1.9k using Sech 60 FWS and the rest is C40.

This is for a mid-size SUV.

Not bad of a price, especially for SUV, and SECH60 has better heat rejection than C70;
Where did you get that price?
*
This price is mentioned by one of the car clubs that I'm a member of. It's a Huper dealer in Puchong.

i asked quotation form huper optik they quote me 2550 for c70/c40. 3m quote me 2200 for the same. nowadays 3m is cheaper than huper?
*
Hmm... 2550 seems a bit high for that combo of Huper Optik. I think other installers can quote lower.
