I got a quote from Porsche dealer for front window tinting which is much higher than highly rated tinting shops. I asked the dealership and they explained that there is additional labor required for new 4-door Porsche (eg Cayenne, Panamera). The interior window seals are replaced with felt whose effect is to reduce the tightness which would cause scratches in the film over time.

Why is people’s experience?

One tinting shop said they do the same replacement while a second said it was not necessary.

I've had about a dozen cars tinted over the years in AZ, VA, and TX and never had any window trim replaced. You should use a well-regarded tint shop - it's what they specialize in.

BTW, the dealer usually subs their tints to... a well-regarded tint shop.
