a few bubbles are to be expected. give it a few days and some sunshine and the tint should be ok

yes, yes...that's why we tried explaining to everyone...although it was hard with so many people in...haha; bubbles are normal for up to 3 weeks sometimes. Colder weather means longer drying process. It's just moisture between the tint and windows still. Water that is trapped in will just evaporate. DO NOT try to push them out though. Any problems or concerns anyone...definately call us, that's what were here for.

Yup, I've been watching the bubbles gradually disappear (parking in the sun did help)...I'm down to two bubbles, which I'm guessing will get whacked by the sun next week.

Anyone roll their windows down yet?

lol not to sound like a ass but do you honestly think a 0.1 mm thick film can cause your window to slow down?

I'd like to see pictures of those recently tinted cars.

I had a Silver GTI with 40% all around and it was a bit too light. Next I had a gray A4 with 20% all around. I liked it alot but it drew a little, uh, unwanted attention. Thinking I may go 40% all around again.

I've got 3 small ones in my back window still that I'm waiting for to go away. Other than that, it looks like it's so far so good. I rolled my windows down yesterday since I had to in order to get the ticket for a parking garage and they were fine so I've been rolling them down since then.

I still have not rolled them down. Truth be told, with all the rain, I have not driven it much. But It was out in the sun all day Sat, Sun, Wed, and yesterday. I will let it sit out tomorrow if nice, and Sunday as well. Then, I will put them down. Overkill, I am sure, but I do not care.

I am sure it is fine, but then again, except Sunday, there has been no need to put them down, so why even try?
