Cheras, Sel.
My mom just recently purchased an Avanza and wanted to do V-kool tinting for it. My question is-

- Is v-kool the best tinting in Malaysia? Other suggestions?

- Where can I do it somewhere in Cheras/KL by authorised installers?

- How much will it cost to so full tinting?

Thanks for your feedbacks....

v-kool is really good.park ur car under hot sun n come back after 30 mins, u can still feel d aircond coldness.
i think avanza would b categorized under mpv so b prepared to pay more.i went to Tint-Shoppe Damansara (near uptown hawkers) n they quoted me $1600 (v-kool elite) for a sedan.urs i think easily $2k :D

I did my fathers CRV last year and it costs us RM2,200. The heat rejection is fantastic and i must say its well worth the money. Its good investment if you're always out the run.

And yes, if you park your car for 30 minutes under the hot sun, your rides gonna be very hot when you come in. But the difference is, which car can cool down faster, the moment you switch on your aircon. Also, car the tint free car sustain the coolness of the aircon after 15 minutes.

I've sat in my friends Wira without tint and i must say it was burning my skin. Driving a tinted car for so long, i'm not so used to cars without tint.

I was told Smart TAG cannot be used on VKool but i've tried on both my car and my dad's car which is VKool tinted, it worked!! But out of 10 times, at least once or twice will kena jam.

im writing this in as information for the future v-kool users..

ive recently did my tinting (one week ago to be exact) for my car with the v-kool70 which is known as vkool elite in our malaysian market. overall, i would say that its worth the money in terms of its heat rejection and i doubt it'll get you into trouble with any road blocks because it just has a slight tinch of green.

however, one thing thats been bothering me like hell is the fact that i cant go through tolls with my smart tag in the car no matter which part of the windscreen which i placed it thus leaving me no choice but to wind down my windows and stick the tag out each time i go through a toll. kind of annoying if you'd ask me.

so, if you're planning to go for vkool, i would suggest that you tint the whole car v70 (elite), while putting vkool gold-dust for your windscreen because that wouldn't have any problems with smart tags.

For Avanza, it is categorised as mini mpv. My dad used the Elite for the front only rather than the whole car. The rest is the less "keng" version. My advice, go for the elite all the way. I admit I feel some difference with the amount of heat but from what I remember, last time full elite for a previous car lagi keng. So if you do go for it, go for the bestlah. :)

VKool vs EcoTint

I've previously had EcoTint on my other car.

Going to get new car and thinking which brand. If VKool Elite for front wind screen will affect the Smart Tag, what's the point?

Anyone use EcoTint? Any comments. My previous car isn't the most "keng" grade from EcoTint so my Smart Tag works.

Thanks.
