Bro, you can try WE one auto at Taman Century Garden, 80250 Johor Bahru. 6 window total 350RM. But i suggest  you not to go there. i went there once for servicing and they try to do hard sell. I fully recommend you to Eclipse Auto Pte Ltd at 155 Kaki Bukit Avenue 1 #01-00 Shun Li Industrial Park S(416012). I did my car just 1 month ago. But after some blur vision , called up them and they replace a new one for me. service not bad. As for We one auto, i don't think they can replace a new one for you. just my 2cent. Thanks!

Thats what I think too. Install on the whole car , abit kasu so asked them to put 35% for back and transparent on front and windscreen. After one yr go inspection at Boon Lay , asked to remove the windscreen film , faild test wat to do ?

I guess those film cut down heat and uv. Our lousy LTA using some kind of old meter to meature darkness will give false reading lah.

I asked the work shop that i want approved tint by LTA. If not approved at the inspection centre, i will head down to the workshop, Next time don't go Boon lay inspection. Maybe their equipment is already old. LOL

I always opt for the cheapest film. Cheap film will fade with time. So i change all the window film over time.

The whole idea of these film is to cut the the extreme heat in Singapore and Malaysia .  If you install those lousy cheap film ,they only give you the black out look cant really cut down the heat (IR) and UV lor .

Quite costly if you install high grade type that can reduct heat wave by up to 80 - 90 % . Can feel a very big different one if you install good quality one .

I did my full window tinting at LT AUTOMART TRADING 185, Jalan Dato Sulaiman, Taman Century, 80250 Johor Bahru.

Service wise is quite good and price reasonable for full car tinting. Roughly 250RM for whole car. Went back to replace film as it wasn't pasted nicely and they replaced 2 full front window for me. 

Quality wise I would not recommend as their products and workmanship ain't great. I think doing solar film at SG is still the best choice.  [grin]

Installer in JB do not have the light tramission device that LTA have to check on our car, all just agar agar can pass, price wise sure better than Singapore but have to take the risk been stop by Lta.

and pass inspection 3 time already. So many Msia cars have wrapped and bubbled screens and I

 

wouldn't consider doing it in Msia. Also do in Msia might not pass inspection.

But Inspection ty only check the darkness of the tint.

 

If clear means no tint so that sure can pass. Maybe yr rear too dark cos ty give u 35% tint plus yr window glass alrdy has some tint so both add together alrdy exceed the max alloweed by LTA.

I failed my first inspection on the rear windows and rear screen by 5% as I was told. I tore them and went back again to pass the inspection. After leaving the centre, I pasted them back, a bit ugly. I went to JB to install the 3 pieces, telling to reduce by 5%.

 

When I went for the 2nd inspection, they passed!

I have installed solar films is JB and regretted it twice over the years!!!

 

Firstly, Malaysia import taxes for accessories are very high!! Sg dont have. Secondly, if accessories shops in JB use original or genuine films, nobody in Malaysia can afford them! After I sat in my friend car in Sg, I asked him what solar film it was because it was really cool after few hours of strong sunshine. He told me any of local original films used by Volvo, MB, BMW, VW, Toyota, Mazda, etc are good.

 

I was cheated twice, and now help others to avoid it. Install in Sg to save money and time (and heat stress)!

T&O Auto Car Accessories, 52A Jalan Kebun Teh, Johor Bahru, is run by a very tricky Conman who lied without shame. He said his products are latest when in fact, they are already more than 3 yrs old which he is trying to get rid. When questioned further, he would swear by his mother's grave or give his own guarantee for 3 yrs!

He is one big lying b**tard who cheat without shame! He uses "pressure tactics" such as quickly opening the product box  and pressure you to buy - its opened!!!  I was pressured to buy in-car camera and solar films both are useless after only few weeks!!! The sticker prices are very high and he can give 50% discount!!!

His technicians are inexperience and connected wrongly! I requested correction and his disgrunted exployees make matter worse! I had to go to another JB accessories shop to correct it and pay again!

After looking through this thread I'll probably do my installation in SG. Besides, considering the VEP fee + workshop carrot fee may some what equivalates to price in SG, factoring the workmanship and quality of the product.

Just to share, recently I contacted a workshop in Johor. They quoted me 650rm for Forester. They claim the spec is 99%uv and 75%ir... erm... up to you whether you want to believe it or not. In the end, i decided to install in SG as that price can get you at least the basic package in Singapore.

 

And 1 lesson learnt here: try not to use ur main email to email such shops as i immediately start getting huge amounts of spam emails after contacting them. Should had called them or use some secondary email add.

Sent a sms to enquire about magnetic sun shade and no reply. Called the mobile number and there was no answer. But no regrets as I got what I wanted at a much cheaper price elsewhere.
