The 2nd biggest ‘Con Job’ in our car industry

With the heat wave hitting a high 38-39 degrees Celsius during the day, car owners are cranking up their air conditioners to keep cool in traffic. The first line of defense against the heat starts with the right tinted material on your car glass. The tinted glass business in Malaysia is a multi-million ringgit business and every single day dozens of Malaysian car owners get cheated wholesale by car salesmen, car dealers, tint shop owners and car accessory shops. At the same time dozens other car owners get the best protection against the sun and the harming UV rays by honest tint shop owners and car salesman that offer a warranty on the tint. The ratio is relatively uneven against the honest people and let me explain why.

Look at the bubbles on this car glass. The driver cannot even see at the back properly and this can dangerous at night

There are many tint brands that offer the best protection against the sun and its UV harming rays but like all good things, you need to pay for good quality product.

Here lies the silliness of many car owners. When a new car salesman offers them a hefty discount on ‘quality original’ tint they smile willingly and say ok. Tint supposedly costing RM2,850.00 for a whole car can be yours for RM1800.00? The truth is, the tint offered is probably worth RM80.00 and the cost to install about RM100.00 so the total of RM180.00 is 10% of the discounted price offered to you and the remainder is shared between the ‘quality tint’ dealer and the salesman.

The fooled car owner drives around for months with fake tint with UV ‘slowly killing’ his skin and his car’s interior and over time the tint film fades, cracks and even starts bubbling. The fooled car owner cannot complain or get retribution as he did not get an official warranty. Too late, money spent and his tint film is as good as my children’s school book wrapper.

So, be wise and ask for a warranty, and check the warranty details. Cheap tint is as good as no tint at all!

Best to do your research like ask us at who are the honest good quality tint shops that offer a quality product with a strong solid warranty.
