    I think Vkool is also available in Gold-dust and Silver too. Use a tint that blends with the color of your car then it will look real cool inside and out! think about it.....

    Strongly recommend to use reputable brand like V-Kool. All other Kool or Cool are just come & go type. If you need darker tint, there is V-Kool S40 which is darker as compared to V-Kool Elite. However it is not approve by JPJ. Many cars are with it and no problem going thru JPJ.

    This is what stated in the receipt

    Front: Ray Barrier
    Others: Impeccable
    From Premier Series (they got other than this series, Professional Series, Titanium Series, Frosted and Decorative Series)

    It is black (I think, but definitely not mirror like, green or blue)

    No 1 reason I go for this brand:

    The warranty. My friend is using this brand and after few months, he saw a few flaw in workmanship and complain it. They change the whole thing without question.

    No. 2 reason.

    Any summons on the tint, just pass to them together with the warranty card. They will reimbursed you (not yet proven)

    No. 3 reason

    My smart tag doesn't have any problem with it.

    No. 4 reason

    The technical specification such as ultraviolet filtering (I also don't know how to measure this. anybody got any equipment to measure this)

    No 5 reason

    80% total solar heat rejection. I can feel the different between this and the other brand but can measure it also.

    No, i'm not selling it nor gain anything

    mine got yesterday, did not ask which series of tint but its from rike cool

    my short short review would be: its working, the IR resistants. as when i wind down the window, i can feel instant hot sun on my hand, when i wind up, dun feel anymore. rike cool is quite ok. workmanship so far so good
