I would recommend having it done by a shop. I have done it before and unless you have patience and time I suggest just have it done.

definatly have it done. the windows are pretty flat but it is still well worth the money to have it done and have someone to complain to when it doesn't look right.

yes because if you get into a hurry you will soon find bubles and they look crapy
you could probably get it done for around 300-400 with materal and labor idk

Also if you have it done you usually get like a 1 year warranty. So if it starts to bubble or wrinkle or peel with in a year you get it redone for free.

I got mine done in Fl with 3M film and they were limo tints, 5%, on the rear three windows and 30% on the front two windows for 130 installed with a life time warr. It is easier to have them done. It to the guy about two hours and it would have taken me 5+ hours

I agree pay a Tint shop to do it. I would also suggest to have the inside and outside of windows clean before taking it there.
