Help! window tint for M3

Hi everyone, I tinted my car last week from the BMW dealer. There are many bubbles on the window. Dealer said this is normal, after one week those bubbles will disappre. However, it seems like those bubbles will stay on the window forever!!!! So, I just wonder, should I tint it again? Please kindly tell me how to fix this problem becasue it is really ugly. Thanks!! There are some pictures below:

Wait a week and take it back if it isn't better. Obviously this isn't the desired result.

Give it a bit of time to settle...this is normal for any kind of film installation to anything.
There is always little bubbles left behind...give it time to relax and stretch out.

The dot matrix will always have this result. Most good tint shops use a vinyl strip on the dot-matrix to prevent this issue.

My tinter put a strip of vinyl on the underside and now it looks really good though....not much you can do about the side windows though.

ya - agreed, takes some time to dry out give it really 2 weeks, dot matrix on rear window will improve slightly but will not completely disappear. Should also get a lil darker when dried completely. congrats on the tint!
