liquidblue88 I have a couple of bubbles but they are in very obscure spots. Not really a big deal. First bad tint job costed 180$. The second tint job which looks much much better cost me 220. It is a high quality Llumar tint. You get what you pay for... Although 220 isn't too bad!

liquidblue88 RainX sells a tint safe glass cleaner. I have been using it and it works nicely.

I use Invisible Glass, it is ammonia free and safe to use. I recommend a waffle towel for windows.

Supramk3 Most automotive grade glass cleaners are ammonia free. Stay away from the household glass cleaners. go to autozone, oreilly, walmart, target, etc and go to the auto section by the cleaners.

Supramk3 Any ammonia based window cleaner will eat and ruin tint, use a non ammonia cleaner

Lots of places will charge for the good stuff and won't put it on. My Ti would have been $400 including tip had I not had a Groupon.
Why would you ever pay that much? The dealers by me charge around $200 and they use good quality llumar tint.

Anyone know the life of tint film? How long does it last or stay nice looking?
Yeah at least you have a better feeling they'll stand behind it. A good tint job should have a lifetime warranty (at least as long as you own the car).
