Recently had my wife's 2018 Golf Sportwagen with 3M Ceramic IR tint at 50%. This is my first experience so I really don't know whats acceptable or not. Selected a local shop with good reviews, plenty of photos of tint jobs on nice cars in their website and Facebook.
Got the car back and there are bubbles and/or dust and other debris behind the film on half of the windows. The rear hatch area was the worst, and I have attached photos. I contacted the installer and they said they didn't think they could do better than they did on the original install, and offered removal of the film and a full refund. He said the 50% film is very light colored so it's much easier to see imperfections.
Is this really the best install I could expect?
They also left me a surprise in the back seat.
