Quick question for the tint pros out there...

I had my BMW 5 series tinted with 50% llumar platinum plus flim about a year ago. In daylight and in most night time lighting it looks very clear and perfect. HOWEVER... in some parking lot lighting (orange/yellow) the flim looks wavy and distorted. I cannot understand why the tint looks so nice in the day and distorted any wavy in some lighting.

Is this normal for llumar film? Any info would be great since I dont know much about flim.

EDIT ---- I just found out the the lighting that does this to the film is sodium oxide lights. Any thoughts...

it more than likely has to do with the type of light waves those lights put out. similar to how in many laminated glass, and back glasses you can see the spots in the glass from when they were forming the shape. it isn't really anything to worry about

its your glass, not the film. As for the circumstances, if I stand on left foot and lean over 30 degrees to the right on the 5th tuesday of every other october with a blue moon... I can see uranus

The spots on back windows that are tempered is called "motling".This is caused by cooling the glass after it has been tempered.

A. How does the glass cause this?

B. What the hell does the second sentence mean?

And yes... BMW owners are a lot more picky than other owners. :dunno
