    Unhappy Window Tinting

    I had my rear windows tinted today and was looking forward to picking the car up. I was dissapointed however when I collected the car. When you look close you can see lots of waht look like air pockets between the glass and the window film. The guy at the shop said it was just water and would dry out and would not be able to see them, and this might take a few days to dry. It looks like its getting worse to me.

    He did say to give it a few days but I am worried he was just fobbing me off. For those of you who have had your windows tinted did you experiance the same thing?

    I have emailed the guy to see what he thinks as it is someone different I dealt with in the store to the person I was in email conversation to see what he says.

    They have said that the work comes with a 12 month warranty but I am worried. The car he showed me before I had mine done was perfect.

    Give it a few days to dry out... those marks will disapeer trust me!!

    I had mine done and had those horrible water marks everywhere.. they went after 2 days.

    Well here are some photo's not great ones as its raining outside. Will try and get some better ones soon. Just need to get my springs fitted now. Local garage quoted me £160 to fit all 4. Need to lok elsewhere. Oh and then find some 18" MultiSpokes.

    Well still not happy. The rear windows still have a few tiny bubbles but the rear window round the edge where the clear glass meets the black surround and has little black pin ****** (spots) the film has lifted. I presume because there is nothing to stick to. Will have to go back on Monday and ask.
