Tinted Film
Hi there,

I got my E250 W212.

Any recommendation for the brand of tinted film ? Looking at V-kool, 3M, Llumar and FSK.

Pls share your valuable experience here.

I thank you very much for your time spending in replying to my uncertainty.

Thanks.
Raymond Goh

Re: Tinted Film
I think there're a lot of choices out there but here are the things to note, IMHO

- the windscreen and side windows already have a little tint in them. Adding ANY type of tint would push them over the legal threshold (70% for front, 50% for front sides)

- having said that, having a really good tint for the front windscreen is great since most of the heat comes from there

- I've used the top-range VKool and Huper Optik, the latter works better with Smart Tag

- workmanship is key, no matter what film you use. Only install at shops which have customers who recommended you based on their experience.

good luck!

Don't pass the 3M without analysing all aspects. Using both V-kool and 3M.

On apple to apple spec comparison, the 3M has slightly better radiation modulation than V-kool. The warranty registration followup, 3M seems more committed.

Price wise as Jan 2015, the 3M was cheaper.

Installer matters in both instances.

Re: Tinted Film
Thanks to all you guys valuable info.

1. V-kool - I worry smart tag and GPS failure
Metal base compound - cost rusty for some comments

2. Huper Optik - one of my friend tear if off and repalce with V-kool. Much complaints from him.
Ceramic based film.

3. 3M - some said is infrared film and its absorbed heat

I am thinking Llumar but anyone know the quality ?
Paul Tan recommended Llumar.

Thanks.
Raymond Goh

Huper has been ok for me. What's your friend's problems with it? Workmanship or film quality? I paid 2400 including GST and panoramic sunroof.

The price is good if all panels are of the Ceramic range.
Name and contact of your installer, please.

Huper Optik tint is supposed to be tougher than most, not easily faded or scratched off.

Huper Optik is all ceramic base film.

I do not know why my friend was so ill-felt with Huper Optik until he teared if off and replaced with V-kool .

My friend told me original v-kool is Ok with smart tag. Those that fail with smart tag is fake one. I simply confuse.
