I would not recommend tinting them yourself. I tried tinting my own windows on my old 94 camaro and it was a PITA! (I ended up just having a local shop do them instead of wasting more money on tint) That and my dad tinted my sisters a long time ago and they ended up turning purple after a year or two. Idk about others self tinting experiences but thats my 2 cents lol.

PAY TO HAVE THEM PROFESSIONALLY TINTED!!! every person other than professionals has had a bad experience when tinting there own windows. You can typically find a shop to tint you windows for around $150-$200 depending on what you want. To have my fronts tinted to match my back its only $50 so its definitely worth having someone that does it for a living do your windows.

Still thats not bad. i know its more than doing it yourself, but they are professionals and a lot of shops also provide a warranty with it. if you do it yourself and make one wrong cut then you are out all your money right away

Gila tint is crap. It WILL turn purple, and it WILL peel eventually! Tint is one thing you just don't want to cheap out on! You will NEVER get the same results DIY as a professional job. Trust me, I learned the hard way through many failed attempts!

I install tint for a living....go pay someone and have it professionally done. I've seen too many crap jobs come in for repair over the years. The dealer I work at charges $129 for front windows only so you're getting an alright deal. $80 would be best.
