    I think the matrix lines are unavoidable, will always see the lines.

    There are always a few wee bubbles pal, but they will go when the tint film settles, the guy I use always asks me to go back in 7 days or so, so that he can smooth out any bubbles that don't disappear, never had an issue

    Kevin is a nice guy, but he hasn't asked me to bring it back to him yet and said gotta wait it out.
    There's a bubble about 5mm wide, hoping that won't cause a problem.

    I think I gotta go outside and do my sun dance

    He said the shade I chose was factory so not too sure. It looked like one of the lighter shades compared to dark smoke and limo.

    I repositioned the car to face the sun so the water bubbles can absorb the heat/light quicker lol

    It's quite bright outside right now but this is what I literally just took:

    There are a few small pin head ones at the rear windscreen, and a few pin ones on the one you can see here.
    Not very visible from the outside, but if you sit on the inside of the car you can see them.

    It's only a few, but nothing too dramatic

    No idea, I don't think it is dark smoke as it looked more like 50% to me when he showed me the examples, but then again 50% on top of a already 30% audi standard tint would make it darker than 50%.

    There's a few more but you can't really see them unless you go looking for them, I guess they will disappear over time.

    Not the best of pictures:

    Search for mobile tints in your county, it took me quite a while to finally find one for £180 vs the £300 "special offers" I could find....

    Your dark smoke tint looked good as well, which is reassuring.
