    The people who tinted my car told me the dot matrix would bubble but on a darker tint a peice of black vinyl over the dot matrix is perfect. If done right it won't bubble and it will stick better than tint around the dots. Plus in he rear view you really don't see the dot matrix so it shouldn't block any view.

    I got all mine done and I had issues with the bubbles on the passenger window and the guy redid it no questions asked... There's a small hair in my driver window but I wasn't realy sweatin it cuz I know minor flaws come with tinting but not a ridiculous eye sore amount... And I'm at 35% tint...

    tiny little bubbles are normal and they will go away within a few days but the bubbles the OP had were horrible and just overall a bad job. and the dot matrix is extremely hard to do and i gaurantee you will not be 100% no matter who does it without puting vynil or something else over it.

    the problem is most of the tinny bubbles were caused by dirt between the tint and window on the driver side. he said he might have to put vinyl on the top of the rear window but i am not 100% on the idea. i have never seen it done

    ya if they are dirt bubbles then they will redo them. but don't expect perfection cuz unless they are in a sterile dirt free environment there are gonna be slight imperfections but the original job was just horid
