Talking about security lapses at our border, I am sure most of us have seen many foreign-registered cars with dark-tinted glass driving around on our roads. But the question is why are they are allowed in the first place since this is supposed to be illegal?

Though they are foreign cars, they must adhere to our traffic rules & regulations.....

You've also seen Singapore cars with illegal mods right? 

 

Doesn't that answer your question?

They are not obliged to local regulations which explains the horrible exos they have and yet passed the checkpoint. Speaking of which I was caught again for illegal mods recently :P.

Not only foreign-registered cars lah,

even singapore-registered cars also with very dark-tinted glass, especially those MPVs, cannot see inside anything from these MPVs' rear glass, don't know what doing inside [:p]

while 3 years inspection, remove the illegal film, once passed the inspection, installed back again,  

a lot workshops provide this service,

because our LTA never spot-check on road, they are too busy to think how to earn more $$ from COE

Because LTA say if it comes default, then it's legal, even if the tinting is darker than allowed or what ever mods it come with.

 

BTW, Malaysia is 50% tint all round right?

the authorities could be turning a blind eye due to the emphasis on trade relations with truly asia..only recently did the NEA start enforcing on vehicular emission and given truly asians 6 more months extra just to comply..such is the disadvantage of being a small country that sinkies have to bow down to everyone including Indonesia, Malaysia & chao ang mohs  [thumbsdown]

its not about the money, its the time spent..

usually for such offence, you need to go through  few round of inspections..

 

for mine, i went through 4 round then passed..

 

plus the money go to the garment, i rather donate to the needy..

 

i still like to mod cars.. but no longer do in singapore..

the lifespan too short.. too dangerous and no fun

Dark curtain ok as long as when u drive or during vcom inspection u fold it.

And dark tint window also can if ur car new and dont get caught by tp (by luck). Normally i heard some ppl say 3rd year before inspecyion they take off the film and install again after inspection. Dunno true anot but i throw away my front 2 film during inspection and buy 2 new with 60% visibility on my prev car.
Dont get confused between my personality & my attitude...

My personality is who I am...

My attitude depends on who you are...

same here. I like to mod my car as I dislike to drive same car as others more towards individuality.

 

That time I send to workshop to settle for me so one time pass already.

 

You donate the garment then they use this $$ for GST package haha.

I was changing my car from Honda Jazz to Civic and went down to this shop to dismantle and refitting my in-car camera and active subwoofer. Was glad that I went to this outlet for the service as they were able to complete the service within an hour in two Saturday. Fast and everything were well done too!
