Pay a professional. Mine cost 180 to do the whole car, ex windscreen. The rear window is a pain to do, the dot matrix is a pain to cover, so will never look right doing it yourself.

Isn't it about 150 to get a car tinted?? I'd get it done professionally, I've seen plenty of cars on the road where the owners have tinted it themselves and they've done a crap job, there's no hiding a badly done tint

Sorry Drrncour, I wasn't questioning your 180 price, it took me ages to write my reply to the OP as I'm watching football on the tv as well, I was just generally asking was it about that much

There are photos in here. Think us I paid 180 but the aftercare is top notch. Like if I want them removed due to selling/ police they will remove for me free if charge. If a window gets broken they will re-tint for free ect. (There is a limit to this)

Can't say I have noticed any condensation in mine. Thanks for the comments, got a few more exterior mods to do yet. Just can't decide on the caliper colour yet, perhaps gold.

I got a medium tint, look slightly darker in the pics then actual.

If I were you I will use a service from a professional tinting by yourself is not ideal specially if it is your first time, trust me it is not as easy as it seems. I tried once to do it by myself and it turned out really bad I had used several films which is actually a waste of money.
