I got my car tinted at California Tint at rosemead like 8 months ago.

At the top of my window the tint is scratched vertically, like little lines, and it squeaks like hell when i close the window unless I wipe off the build up of residue. Once I wipe off the residue on top of the window, the windows don't squeak anymore.

Is there any fix to it? or do I always have to keep wiping off this residue to semi fix it? (this issue only applies to the front windows.

I have 3 friends that got their 2IS windows tinted from them, but they all don't have this issue -.-.

It's not the tint causing that problem, it's the felt on the seal where your window rolls down. If it gets worn out or if dust particles get stuck in there it will scratch the tint when you roll your windows up and down. You should be able to have the felt replaced for like $20 a window.

Hey guys. Just FYI we here at 3T use VIP Auto Customs out in the Pasadena area. They always travel to us to do our Ferraris and other exotics. If we have problems, they always come out and are authorized 3M. They have begun doing clear bras but haven't utilized their services for it yet. Ask for Robert and let him know that Hisanori from 3T recommended him.

Those guys are so awesome! My brother gets his Audi serviced there all the time! Heard (and seen) nothing but good things from Impex!

Another vouch for California Tint, I've had about 20 cars done the past year through Peter. Any issues I've had (only twice) have been taken care of swiftly and professionally.

Default Window Tinting in the LA Area

I am looking to get my windows tinted very soon in anticipation for the warm Socal summer weather, not to mention that it looks great on the CT. I missed out on a Groupon deal last week that offered tinting for $165 at a local shop in Alhambra.

Can anyone recommend a good shop that will tint at a reasonable price and offers a good warranty and good service in the LA area?

California Tint is well recomended in Rosemead.

But, can get very crowded.
