    I wouldnt accept any bubbles.

    Atleast he said he will sort them out.
    How long did he say to wait.

    Sometimes can take around a month to settle properly>

    When I got my tints on the punto, I got the rears done Limo Black and I didnt have one bubble!

    I've had my last 4 cars tinted and have only ever seen one bubble and i didn't pay him until it was fixed. Your paying for a service and if you are not completely satisfied then kick up a fuss. I have tinted cars myself in the past and have never left any bubbles in there so i don't know what your tinter is going on about. I had my current convertible tinted in december when it was freezing and he didn't leave any bubbles.

    Tab, this may be the case with your previous tinting.

    But if there are bubbles, he is right they should disappear after a month. This is what any tinter will say if there are small bubbles..

    Mine even said some may appear..

    If they dont disappear, or if they are big then definately get your money back or get him to repair it..
