Unfortunately this problem is specific to the Coupe as the dot matrix is much wider.

I had the same problem but when they removed the tint to try and fix it they ruined the heater demister bars and nicked the headlining. They (Tint-A-Car) denied liability and in the end I claimed on my car insurance and replaced both the headlining and the whole back windscreen!!!

Once that was done I had my BMW dealer re-do it. They specifically don't tint over the dots at the top of the windscreen, they just leave it untinted, which looks fine and is the best solution.

There is a product called Dotmaster or something like that which some tinters use, but it doesn't really work either. Others actually try and file down the dots using steel wool.
