    self applied - or professional fit ?

    if its the latter return to whoever fitted it - not of merchantable quality etc etc and get it redone foc

    if its the first then - maybe option 2 would be better ....
    and dont try to bypass the swear filter or behold the wraith of the mods

    just had an update from a guy who does tinting for a dealership, he says that there is no chance that tints will ever take on dot matrix. The only way around this with cars such as the vectra is to get a matching colour black vinyl and put that around the dot matrix and tint the window up to the edge of that to get a decent sharp look, so there will be some stern words with the tinting guy tomorrow
