I don't want it to get bubbles in it or look blue, which I seem to see a lot of with after market tint.

You need two things - a quality product, and a competent installer.

Cheap films fade/discolor over time. Higher quality films also block more of the sun's heat, keeping your interior cooler. Wherever you end up, I suggest opting for the highest quality film they offer.

In my area, I've spent $150-$200 to have a premium quality film installed. Large vehicles with more windows might be more. The local shop I use offers computer cut film. Otherwise you'll have a kid with a roll of film and a razor blade cutting inside your car. You can find someone to tint a car for a fraction of that price, but this is one place where I'll gladly pay more to have the job done right.
