    It's the first day.

    It's not that bad (by that I mean is not one of those kinds of bubbles that you can actually feel).

    But my drivers side windows back and front have like 1 straight line of hair buildup.

    I haven't opened my windows, but I was thinking to wait 3 days and if its still there go and complain. What do you guys say?

    I'd give it a few days to see if the bubbles go away.

    bubbles are normal as the water behind the tint has to dry. give it up to a full week, and if nothing happens then go back and let them know.

    Its normal. Im surprised they didnt tell you that since the shop that tinted my windows spend about 10 minutes talking about it and what I can and cant do.

    I had the best tinter in town put high quality tint on all my windows, and each window has a handful of tiny bubbles.

    On the other hand, he cut it so close to the window edges you need a microscope to see where the tint ends and the window starts.

    It's pretty much impossible to make tint 'perfect'.

    My tint had no bubbles but they said if it had some that it could take up to a month to get of. Then he said you look through glass not at it lol.
