Just got my sedan tinted but hazy/blurry out back????

I just got my windows tinted in my sedan on Monday...FormulaOne Pinnacle tint 15% rear/back windows and 35% front two windows...at night and even during the day when I look in my rear view mirror lights and certain moving objects have like a slight blur hazy look to them (this is more noticable at night with headlights, they look blurred over the defrost lines). I know a lot of people on here have tinted their 8th Gens and am wondering if I should take it back to the shop or if this is normal. It also looks kind of hazy/slight off color purple tinge from the inside on the front two windows right now not sure if thats because it hasn't dried yet but it doesn't look that way from the outside. Please let me know your advice with this kind of tint and how it should be.

Thanks,

-CV

I think it's cause it hasn't dried. After I got mine done I parked out in direct sun for about a week and it went away.

just a tip for those with tints....it is MUCH easier to see out your rearview mirror at night if you turn the auto function to off

Mine wasn't like that at all. Hopefully the tint guy thoroughly cleaned the rear window, which in my car was full of haze since I bought it. I couldn't completely remove it myself with a myriad of cleaners, but the tint guy did it with some kind of dish soap; go figure. Good luck man; keep us posted if it goes away.
