I will report back with any developments.

P.S. Still - how the hell do you mess up the iDrive unit while tinting the windows? I do not believe that this is a coincidence and iDrive just happened to become faulty while the car was away...
Your head unit is connected to the FEM_BODY module which manages most of your electronics like the car locking system, head lights etc. This module is located by the passenger foot well so who knows, maybe something is loose there.

I doubt they took out your head unit though because they would need to take out the centre console trim, then undo 4 screws for the climate control and then another 4 screws for the head unit to come out.

Did you do the tinting or did you take it to someone else to have it done?
