Originally I had it done by a local shop because I didn't have the time to do it and needed to keep it a secret from my wife. I believe it took her about 5 days off and on. From my understanding, the hardest part for her was the M3 bumper. It's a lot of sharp edges which lead to the vinyl tearing while stretching. The rest of the car was pretty easy.

It took me about 6 hours to get the door and quarter redone. That was with my 5 year old nearby so lots of distractions. I'd say if you worked non stop, you could do the entire car in 2-3 days. I'm going to do my other car myself soon and figure it'll take 3 days. It could be done quicker (lots of shops do 1 day turnaround) but vinyl requires patience so it's better to take your time instead of rushing it and getting a questionable result. Or having to redo panels.
