    Don't do it!!! Let the pros do it.. DIY would end up costing you more money and more bubbles in the tint... ;)

    This is one of the few things I really wouldn't try to do myself. Bad tint jobs look terrible.

    Yup I felt the same way for my tint on my old 4dr. Price varies depending on the quality of the paper you have them use.I got the metallic/titanium paper it is worth it IMO as it never fades or bubbles.

    I had the car for about 8 years and the tint held up better than my bodykit. :\
    I paid $275.00 for the tint job on the sedan and i am planning on getting the ep tinted soon too :D

    I used to do tint, and I am sending mine out. too much hassle if you don't have the setup. now they cut tint on a computer plotter, like vinyl stickers. no more trimming and sliding the tint down the glass for the edge gaps. and the back glass looks like it would be a bitch.

    Take it from numerous people everywhere, the DIY never works out, and you end up going to get it done anyways. I bet since its winter you can find someone to do it for like $20 a window.
