best to drop by their shop to find out personally so each brand usually have different grades (protection, tint) to suit budget and each cars' window existing tint.

 

I have used 3 different brands for my previous and current rides, no problems with installation, so I would say that they are competent to install the films.  Furthermore, they usually have warranty and aftersales service to take care of bubbles issue.

I think quite a few brands out there. Most of them has different specs and etc.

 

Bubbles wises I think you will be able to ask them rectify for u whenever there is. But remember to share in MCF if you encountered bubbles after few months.. At least, we will avoid.. hehehe. :D

 

Maybe you can try to PM Infratint for his rates. Saw quite a few nice cars done up at the thread:

it really depends on how much you wanna spend.. that usually decides the quality.. and i agree that you have to go down to the shop to see which one you like most.. but be prepared to spend if you really want the good ones. 

 

for me, i got the tintsy cool one (basic) from groupon earlier this year for my picanto and i find it good enough for me..

I did a research previously when I was looking to install Solar Film, I ended up with Tintsy Cool Platinum Plus package (IRR:90%front,99%rear. VLT:70%front,29%rear). It was a Xmas promotion so I reckon I got a good deal. 

 

They allow you to test the difference between each level, due to diminishing returns I chose the 2nd best package. The top range package blocks heat better but IMO is not worth the difference in price.

 

They use a meter to measure both the VLT and IRR rate so you know what you are really getting. 

 

Overall quite pleased, might even consider getting them to do up my future home.

Less than 600 for the Platinum Plus package.

Noticeable difference when driving with the sun shining directly on my thighs.

imho, the quality of the film is all similar just that the brands are diff only. unless you say those top grade vs lowest grade ones then probably can notice slight diff and only if you use left windows lousy right windows good. as for workmanship, tinting windows are v simple. in fact, window tinting can be done DIY. i tried doing it on my rear windows perfectly fine. just dont itchy fingers try and scratch it can alr

Usually, they have a handheld device that will give you a reading. 

 

Check with them before heading down.
