Did I get a bad tint job on my car?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone



Im not a big car guy and I rarely drive my car but I decided I wanted to tint my car this year. I drive a 2013 Subaru Impreza 5 door 


I’ve never had to tint a car but I found what I thought to be a reasonable price of around $400 to do it with a local detailer. 


I choose a Suntek CIR film at 30% for all my windows besides my front window. 


Today was was the first day I rolled down my windows and saw what the tint looked like with it rolled down.


Im not sure if this is a bad job but it looks so inconsistent to me and uneven. 


This is the passengers side window




This is the drivers side window. I noticed on this window that there are a lot of little cuts and weird edges which don’t seem very refined. Also this is the only window where the tint fully meets the top of the window 



rear drivers side window 





below below are the rear passenger side window which I have no clue what that part of the top is. Is this normal? 




Sorry for so many pics but does this look like a normal tint job? Should I take it back and have it redone?



thanks for any help!

Just that weird bubbling part on the back window and the weird cut marks on the drivers side window. 


The front drivers side window the film goes all the way to the top of the window and that’s not the same on any other window. 


 Unsure if the gap is supposed to exist or not. Just my first window tint and unsure if this looks normal.

The cut lines could be more even or-they coulld shave them close. Usually i drive with them all the way up or all the way down so it dosent bother me. It looks normal to me. I always show people what it going to look like on the top. Couldnt see the bubble in the pic. You can stop by and ask em about it might slide right out.

It look good to me...don’t pick this guy apart because you want it closer to the edge...we charge additional $25 for shave top each glass.  For all the tinter here...we suppose to support each other and not tear another tinter apart. I personally don’t see anything wrong with it.

For the OP ....highly recommend you show the tint shop this...Any quality shop will r&r that with no questions ask. Maybe a little too much soap or didn’t lock the top before rolling up...it happen but give them a chance to fix it.

Hi everyone, thank you for your responses 


This is my follow up as last week I’ve had my tint re-done at the same shop. I’m still not sure if this is how it should look since this is my first time ever having a car tinted. 


I’ve posted some pictures of the replacement tint they offered below:


Can any of you tint experts out there let me know if the gap at the top of the window is to be expected with Suntek film?



  This would be a Suntek CIR 30% film 

















Thank you for any any feedback or help! I’m not a tinter myself and this is the first tint job I’ve paid someone for!
