i had the same problem. Take it back and make him re do it. Its a tinters job to know what he doing. have him roll down the windows, cut the bottom weather strips off. Dont pay him again obviously. Its his fault.

Is 3M film a good quality for tint that won't scratch?

My formula 1 pinnacle tint is scratched to crap, over 10 lines on each window, and I've had the tint for maybe 3 weeks, which is extremely unfortunate. Looks like I'll be giving my tint shop a call.

A good tinter will be able to do it without any modification.

Deal with someone who has done BMW's frequently. Knock on wood, mine hasn't had any problems.

I brought it up during install, and he told me "well do your windows scratch now?" I said no, and he's like "they won't when you add the tint. If there was a problem, they would've affected your non tinted windows too." The tint is so thin, its added thickness is negligible.

He told me, its usually if you let dirt in, it gets caught on the felt and could (possibly) scratch. But something as simple as keeping your windows clean would prevent it.
