    Tint removal?

    I just bought a 330i ZHP, and the rear window has tint that is bubbling and won't pass MD inspection. Where do people recommend I go to have the tint removed, at an affordable price? Since it's the rear window I'd rather pay somebody with the right experience and equipment so that the defroster wires don't get damaged.

    This is great weather for removing tint with ammonia and black trashbags, baking in the near-90 degrees temps:

    I don't know any place in your area, but doubt any would/could guarantee they won't damage the defroster wires.

    I don't necessarily expect anyone to guarantee no damage, but I'm betting a reputable shop will have a lot more experience removing tint than I do, since I've never in my life done it before :-)

    I removed my tint and by far the easiest method is to use a steamer used to remove wall paper.
