Not bad, if I had the $$ I would definitely consider something like that.

Yeah, that'* cheap...but tinting isn't easy. Getting it done professionally is the way to achieve best results. I coughed up $240 to get my 97 done and I loved the tint.

yeah but, iv seem people that do it them self and it comes out just as good as the tint places, all depends on how much time you spend on preping and on how good your at hands on stuff

Those pre-cut kits have been available on eBay for quite some time now. Word of warning, cutting is only 25% of the game. Prep and application are the other parts that REALLY count.

Moving to Detailing and Appearance......

What would you think about buying the kit and getting a pro to install it? I guess it comes down to the labor vs. materials...
Do you think there'd be any advantage to doing it that way?
