    How picky are you with tint?

    I just got my windows tinted...and on the edges of the windows there's a space around some of the window...and a few bubbles...nothing killer or terrible but I'm wondering if I'm being too picky...they hook me up with a good price and I've gotten plenty of work done...I don't want to step on any toes by asking them to redo it but at the same time if I ask and they charge me again, I'd be kind of upset...what do you guys think I should do? I'll post pics later...

    Some bubbles on fresh tiny is normal and should go away in a couple of days. Space should be very minimal. How does it look around the dot matrix areas?

    I'm picky about that. That def won't go away unless it's fixed.
    Same shop did your 5er? If so then they should do the same quality work on the Benz.
    I would have it fixed. But that's just me.

    Very picky. If I'm paying for it I expect it to be perfect or what is the point?

    the only way to get the dot matrix fully covered, i was told, is to shave it off. ive seen almost every newer car with them, have imperfect tint

    not too picky since you'll always a few scratches, bubbles, and of course, the dot matrix. It could even fall off on the way back from a good place. it always looks more noticeable when it's new..
    Maybe you can stil see some of the UV effect in the solution too. It needs some time to dry and adhere more neatly, I suppose.
