just looks dirty to me. I know you said you cleaned it, but it does not look clean.

I've cleaned the windows, both inside and outside, myself multiple times, including using soap+water and amonia free glass cleaner with proper microfiber towel.

Notice how the haziness is so consistent throughout the window, if it was a dirtiness issue it would have been random spots no?

After 2 months of waiting... well, it is not going to go away.

I would ask the tint shop what they think about it. Do they know of any solutions?

As you said, the hazy / milkiness is so even that appears to be the quality of the film itself, not the application.

Go back to the shop and tell them to redo the tint. Looks like a crap job on the tint.

To all,

Believe it or not this is not a $99 tint job. This is a top of the line film that i paid $300+ plus. Definitely disappointed, i am having it removed and reinstalling another brand of film later this week.
However i dont want to expose the name of the place i got it from since the owner is willing to work with me for a resolution.

the installer must be blind then for not checking his completed work. :D

One would think if you do this thousands of time everyday, it should not happen, esp when all the windows are like that

Why not? If the owner is honest - and can explain what happened and WHY it will NOT happened AGAIN - post the name it here and post the suggested resolution.

I think the name of this place should be exposed to prevent any RFDers or friends of RFDers from going here with their vehicles.

The quality of the tints are definitely cheap and low quality...even my $60 carbon film tint for 2 front windows don't have this issue.

It is the quality of the film that I am going after, not the tint shop or the workmanship of the installers. This tint shop has taken care of 6 vehicles, including 4 vehicles within my close social circle and all installs had been trouble free. Even this tint job was done without any flaws, it's just the film that's giving issues.
