Best NoVa tint shop for dot matrix?

Had my car tinted months ago by my usual guy, and the vinyl on the dot matrix never properly dried. Took it back today and he says they can't do any better. If I find a place that can redo the vinyl and it looks better, they pay for it. Where have you guys had success with vinyl on the dot matrix?

I don't know if he's still popular but Matt at TNT Tint used to be the go-to guy for luxury cars. Originally in Alexandria looks like he moved to Sterling. He's apparently really good at dot matrix application in particular. Nice guy too loves to talk and chat about anything.

Went to LA Tint in Manassas VA last weekend and I'm not sure if I should be complaining or not because they did a pretty decent job from what I've seen other shops do. I'll post a pic later of dot matrix. Compare...

I'll get a pic of mine up later too.. Doesn't look really BAD but I've seen plenty of cars that look better both in person and on the forums.

This is why I didn't get the tints done. Every E92 I see has the tint not attached properly around dot matrix. Looks very ugly from outside.

I wonder if there is a way of removing some dots. Maybe paint thinner ?

I couldn't be happier with the job Matt did in Sterling (he's co-located at Designo Motoring)
