Window Tint

Has anyone attempted tinting their own windows? I have heard of this being a potential DIY....

I know you can buy precut kits from ebay and other places.

Some professionals find it tricky to do the rear window, ESP with the dot matrix. And by the time you buy film, spray, felt tip squeegee ect any saving will be negligible.

Do not do it yourself. Pay the 200 bucks and get it done. The dot matrix on BMW's are really hard and if you dont go to a reputable place they will mess up the back window.
