    I had my dealer tint my windows, mainly because they come with a lifetime warranty. And it was a good deal cost wise.

    But no, I've had no issues with bubbles.

    No issues here, and mine were tinted and dried in sub freezing temps.

    I don't mean to hijack the thread... but for those who have tinted, what did you pay? I have been putting off tint until summer because I assume a good install and quality film would get me near $800-1,000.

    Also-- opinions on the tint you went with?...

    If anyone happens to be local and can recommend a place to me, I'm in San Jose CA

    $400 for top shelf ceramic, all but the windshield. A guy in Spokane runs a detailing place called "The Shop". Guaranteed replacement for as long as you own the car... including if you have have a window broken! Highly recommended. He had a booth at SEMA last year to showcase his wrap work.

    My advice....get someone who has really mastered the craft.

    Spokane... Washington? Long way to go for tint but I agree that it needs to be done right the first time.

    I should find out whether I can get a quote in that range around here... 1/3 the damage I was expecting for good quality. Thanks for your replies!

    I paid $180 for Suntek Carbon on all 7 windows
    (everything but the moonroof and windshield). I did 45% on the front and 5% everywhere else. Lifetime warranty.

    I live in CA (near Fresno) so prices are quite a bit less than the bay area or LA

    I had 30% tint done on all windows.
    In the past I've done my own tinting but figured I'd have it done at the dealer before I picked it up.
    Paid $350 and there are small air bubbles showing plus the tint pulled away at the bottom of the drivers window.
    I'm not taking it back to the same guy for a redo... Don't want that hack anywhere near my car again.
    I'll re-tint it myself when it's warmer out.
