Okay need some input from sifus over here on how to go about my failed Puspakom visits. I had to change engine as the original was giving me problem (From 4G93 to 4G93). I naively thought it will be easy getting approval, but actually nope:

First visit-
Tinting failed, so wanting to do a proper job I left Puspakom and removed my tint at a tint shop. (Apparently the tint shop told me unless your tint is very light, you will definitely fail the test)

Second visit (A week later)
This time, they failed me on my HID and a broken number plate light.

Now I'm pretty fed up with this process already of going back and forth till I get things right. For all you know the next time I go there with the changes done they might fail me on my exhaust. Seeing that it cost money to convert back to Halogen and just to be safe perhaps the muffler as well, I called a runner I've previously used and he claims that since you failed before it's in the system so he can't help me as well.

So my question is - Anybody know how the best way to go about this? Will getting a Padang Jawa runner help solve the problem? Or I have to convert everything back to as stock as possible?

It is damn easy getting approval.

Clearly if you use a tint that is not 70% VLT front and 50% VLT rest, you will fail. I passed my Puspakom the first and second time with no issues. Change engine twice.

Second visit (A week later)
This time, they failed me on my HID and a broken number plate light.
Retro fitted HID is illegal, of course they fail you. Are you one of those fucking retards whose HID shines everywhere EXCEPT on the road? Broken number plate light, duh. Its called an inspection, not look at your car for fun.

Now I'm pretty fed up with this process already of going back and forth till I get things right.
That's like saying you fail exam because you didn't study and you are fed up. Well, duh.

For all you know the next time I go there with the changes done they might fail me on my exhaust. Seeing that it cost money to convert back to Halogen and just to be safe perhaps the muffler as well, I called a runner I've previously used and he claims that since you failed before it's in the system so he can't help me as well.
Exhaust won't fail unless its leaking or too noisy or coming out smoke.

So my question is - Anybody know how the best way to go about this? Will getting a Padang Jawa runner help solve the problem? Or I have to convert everything back to as stock as possible?
Make sure your car is in order lah. All the laws and rules is on JPJ.GOV.MY. Already stated the VLT for tint, already stated no retro fitted HID. You break the law you expect to pass?

hahaha...apart from the item mentioned by Ixeo, maybe the inspector at the Puspakom kena scolded by wifey before inspecting cars that day...

What is said by Ixeo is correct. If car got problem surely cannot pass. The thread starter should do his homework before sending the car for inspection.

I got fren who sent his car for inspection resorted put up a "religious" outlook wearing a kopiah so he hope the Puspakom would "pass" his car

Yup, have to check everything in order before inspection.....

One story from my tyre shop friend. He did alignment for small lorry, driver send in, failed alignment. The inspector told driver go to shop around the corner to get it done. He did and came back show receipt and was passed.....How?
Driver come back tell my friend the story and ask him to do alignment again. My friend say pass already why ask me do alignment again. He say after that shop do steering not straight....:banghead::banghead:

I went through the Puspakom website and thought these are the only things they were going to check. (Inspection Points).

Tint - Well looks like the cheap brand specifications are not accurate then.
HID - Bought the car with it. If I were to convert it back to halogen what would I need other than the bulbs? Is it a straight forward process?
Number plate light - This one I didn't notice when the car went in.
Exhaust - Will just swap it then to be safe.

Nebermind bro 006,

So now you already know the points that Puspakom would check on the car......so be prepared for it.
Good luck with the next inspection

comply to their requirement and get it pass. or later you will face problem when selling it or "touch wood" met accident....insurance company can void yr coverage.
Puspakom nowaday hard to "bribe"...just follow lor...no choice.

Tinting very subjective but easy to spot lah.. the inspector will eye-ball first.. if the tint is clear, most likely can pass. But if the window looks a bit darker, jeng jeng jeng.. you know lah.

The problems with tint is the shop will give you tint with 50% VLT, but if your original glass got a little like even 5% then fail already...:bawling:

For those tint which has a "100% JPJ Compliant" feature when you purchase, just consult the shop that you are going for a Puspakom inspection and ask will they provide a retint option if it fails? If your receipt is still within warranty period, they should retint back for FOC if it is a JPJ Compliant tint. I got mine retint for FOC as nowadays almost all tints will fail at the inspection.

Some shops are good enough have a Sirim test report for their tints. It will verify the level of tinting, so you don't just have to take their word for it.
But some windscreens already have a certain level of tinting/uv protection built into the glass which cuts down on vlt, so you have to take that into account.

I think puspakom officers will get bonus points if they fail a car

But don't take my word for it :biggrin:

retro fitted big brakes, bigger rim, wider tyre, ori exhaust 1.5", my exhaust 2.3", open pod air filter, big ass intercooler in front.

lepas.

like i said, play by the rules, you break the rules you sure fail. your car stock new from dealer but dark tinting, fail. new car from Perodua but you go pasang HID, also fail. guaranteed.

all the cerita about kena fail is spread by runners so they can cari makan. RM400 to do inspection? they pay puspakom rm60 only.

Why they always say tinting sure fail and must tear? Because they don't know your tinting pass or fail, so they just tear it to be safe. you pay them RM400 to "settle". if fail, they have to tear and go queue and pay another RM60. might as well just ask you to tear upfront. that is the TRUTH.

A story to share. I went to puspakom for inspection, selling car off. I've removed all tints but for windscreen as It was so clear & high grade one-claimed 99% heat rejection. So didnt tear off, sayang duit & new owner can use it as well.
But it failed, I was like "it is true?" You cant even notice the windscreen had a tint, it was so clear.
Damn, I need to go back for 2nd inspection, wasting my time. From that day onward, I will surely tear off all my tint for puspakom inspection, no matter how clear the tints are. Maybe it due to the 99% heat rejection? I hve no idea. Has anyone came across situation like this before?

Another story on brakes. My friend mod his Perdana V6 to 6A12TT and mod his brakes too but with High performance brake pads. He went to Puspakom for check, but long queue so wait. His turn came brakes were cold and they fail ask to change brake. He apply Puspakom check 2nd time but did nothing to his car. Before his turn came this time he drove around heat up his brakes first then test time pass....:driver:
