Problem is to do our car right, you really need to take the panel off and extend the tint down past the seal on the bottom of the window. The first time I took it in they cut it to fit at the end of the window and the feature that lowers the window 1/4in made it start to peel since it wasn't completely dry. I took it back thanks to the lifetime warrenty and he just took the panel off and extended it an inch past where the seal is, worked perfectly.

theres a couple reputable shops around here, too, but who ever had my car before me had it tinted 35% (too light for my taste), but it is perfect. you can't find where the tint ends on the edge of the window... im just hesitant on having my car redone if it's going to have like a 1-2mm space from the edge before the tint begins... catch my drift? i wasn't sure if the windows covered in precut tint or if they were done professionally...

Theres a seller selling precut tints for passanger and driver windows for only $14 shipped. What you got to loose? Even of you don't get it right the first time ordering 5 pairs will be like 1 professional installation. I ordered a pair his got 34k feedback and good feedback.

Buying things online can be pretty deceiving at times. I strongly suggest you find out about the quality of this tint first. Poor quality would cause scratching on the tint when moist with time, or peeling can occur. Those are the 2 things you want to look for. I have 5% and I got it done professionally and it is still holding up strong.

i purchased a pre-cut kit from snaptint.com after doing some research and i was pretty happy with the quality. although truth be told i had no clue what i was doing so after installing everything i had bubbles and stuff so i ripped it all off (WOW what a B*tch to clean the windows off after!!)

my only complaint was that i did not feel the rear window piece was cut properly and there was no way to compensate. personally i think if i do it again ill get the roll of film and make my own templates from cardboard to cut pieces from.

if you do try it yourself just be sure to clean everything meticulously. windex, a razor blade and a microfiber cloth. the way you can't get anything underneath.

Don't cheap out this isn't a civic. Cough up the $150 and have it done right with warranty.

Time. There are certain things I believe in paying for someone with the proper skills and experience to do. After my personal attempt on my first beater car at 16, tinting is one of those things.
