The only trouble I've seen is from tinters that don't know how to do the windows with dot matrix... My tinter used some kind of extra bonding material on my rear window

My guy did an awesome job tinting my headlight, tailights, front reflector and all the windows but sadly the back one was not up to par. The dot matrix is tricky but if you find someone use to doing them then your good to go. However, the back doesn't look as bad as i thought it would with the dots not all filled in. The further you get to the top of the rear window the bigger the dots get and thats the only place he had a hard time with. Hope this helps out.

If you look at the top of the back window you can see the difference between where it is completely tinted and where the tinter had trouble with the dots. Its the lighter portion.
