Recommended Person or Shop for tinting m3 window dot matrix

Greetings everyone! I know this has been discussed several times but I just wanted to make sure once and for all. Is there a place/ person that you recommend who could do window tinting on an m3 without having issues with those dot matrix IN Northern or Central NJ? It seem like Don is the only guy everyone recommends because he guarantees no bubbles. But he's way down in Tom's River and he wants the car overnight bec it's a 2 day process, which is an issue for me bec. I need to work and I couldn't find someone to drive that far to and fro on weekdays. I'm looking at 45 or 50%. Other shops I've talked to charge way more than Don but confirms bubbles will show. Thanks

I remember it was around $300-350 for 4 windows and the back window, but that was like 8 years ago, prices have gone up i would suppose.

I got my tint on my G37x sedan from Top of the Line Tint, def the best tint job I have had. Plus there are I think only 2 people in the entire state that have the license from 3M to use their tints and have a warrenty. The other company that uses 3m I used for 2 of my other cars I owned, both bubbled within a year.

If you're close to Perth Amboy we discovered this shop called Boss Audio. They do exceptional tinting for a fraction of the price. We met a couple of European car owners with dot matrix issues going there. I had mine tinted with 50% and not a bubble came out. They use Johnsons $135 plus tax can't beat that price or 3M which cost $100 more. Pictures below 1 week after tinting. Clean and no bubbles. Actually surprised with the outcome
