Hey anyone running into any problems having the windows tinted? I have had mine done twice now. Both times I've ended up with small air bubbles in all the windows. My tinter (who has done it twice) is telling me that the felt Ford uses around the window is causing this and that he says he could do the job many times and still end up with the same result due to the felt that Ford uses. Doesn't make sense to me. As far as I'm concerned there is no reason there should be any air bubbles.
I had my RS tinted on the second day I had it home. Ceramic tint, full windshield at 60%, sides and rear at 10%. My tint guy has done every car I've owned for the last 10 years, and he had NO issues. The tint looks beautiful, no bubbles, no imperfections. The car is in for an oil change and to fix a quirky Sync screen today, or I'd have pics for you. Get a refund and go see someone who won't give you excuses.

I had Panaflex ceramic installed on all windows minus the windshield after about a week of ownership. No bubbles or any other issues to speak of.
Where did you have it done, in MA or FL? I've had over 30 cars tinted and I've never had an issue with bubbles that would require removal.

3M all windows...no issues.
Had all my windows tinted 3M, with the windshield done in ceramic the day after I brought the car home. No issues so far.
