Im afraid once it starts bubbling, you cant stop it. For existing bubbles, puncture the bubble using a pin, wet that specific area and try to smooth it out. That's the best you can do.

Or you can just rip the whole tint off. Blow hot air onto it using a hairdryer and hopefully the adhesive would become gooey and gummy then carefully pull the old tints. You need the patience of mother theresa tho. What a pain in the arse.

like what saddam said, use a pin and pop the bubble with one small puncture, and then smooth it out. it's not going to look perfect, but it'll last until you get it redone

Should be covered under warranty if you had it done at a reputable place.

thanks, i'll try the idea with the pin. it should make it somewhat better. when i bought the car a few years ago it already had the tints (BMW logo on the tints), so i'm assuming when the car was new(1994) the original owner got the tints with the car. so i'm assuming it's been there for 9 years, just started bubbling this summer, SUCKS. and slowly getting worse. does anyone know how much it may cost to replace it eventually.

You can go to Tint King or any good reputable Tint shop and get your whole car tinted for under $200! I think itz worth it at this stage!
