I had them done in October. Every single window has small white bubbles and in areas there are little creases in the film. It bothers me that I have to take time away from work/family to get back into the city to have the entire car redone again. Hopefully he can get it right the next time.

I think that's another thing I liked about Umbra, they have Sunday appointments. You can stay and hang around. Once they start on it, it goes pretty fast. That's also a big problem with me, doing things over. Get it right the first time beause I don't have time to do it over. (and they were like only 2 miles from my house)

yes Cesar gives a lifetime warranty so you can go back. No one is perfect...we all have an off day or something goes wrong. I am taking my wife's car to have it done soon since I am going to drive it more and turn the GS into the garage "queen" and store it for the rest of this winter.
Yup, got married this past summer! I remember my GS garage queen,

Thanks for your input Habeeb!
hi Jan, speaking of winter mats... if you know anybody looking for a set of IS front winter mats, could you ask them to PM me? I'd let them go really cheap..

Pm me the price. I let mine go REALLY cheap. I'll check around for you.
Se you say a 'set' of 'front' winter mats. Are there 4 or 2?

Too much IMO but I hear they do good work. Anything over $175 is "too" much IMO regardless who you have do your windows.

^ yes, I paid $150 to have all windows tinted, including front windshield, on an Audi Q7 that has larger and more windows then the LS does. I had tint placed over the already factory tinted windows. If your not worried about it then just have them do it.

I think we had one LS owner have his windows done there but that was a few years back and he sold his car and haven't seen him active since.
