    I wouldnt bother with the pre-cut film, save yourself some dough just buy a sheet and cut it yourself,
    The rear screen has a black border around it anyway, so if you cut it a little bit short, it probably wont be seen on the outside, and once you put the plastic covers back on the inside it will cover up any minor mistakes.

    bought a kit for about 40 quid. sounded like a great idea but was quite a balls up. rear window, because of the curve,comes in three strips and is really hard to hide the joins. side windows are difficult also. i ripped mine off the next morning but its not an awful lot of money for your kit. maybe you could do a better job, nothing to lose

    I bought the one fro tintexpress but it cost me 50£ as I was going for the whole lot ( front windows as well). Tried to do it myself but with no luck. Ended distroing the left side rear and the bottom of the rear window ( as it comes divided in 3 instead of one piece). Obviously got really .....off and I got a profesionist to do it for me with his own film. As the others recomend though, if you want to go for it yourself better get a roll instead of the laser cut ones.

    in order for th rear to be done in one piece the film has to be pre-shrunk before fitting it to the window. And as for the side windows, even though they don't need shrinking, it's still quite tricky because you've got all the rubbers around thedoor

    and that's just the film, if you're thinking about installing in anything other than a clean dust free garage then forget it, you'll get dust and allsorts trapped underneath the film and they'll bug you forever and a day.

    the easiest, and in the end, the cheapest thing in the end to do is to get it done professionally.
