    back, whatever you like, fronts, Windshield - 25%
    Drivers left and right - 30%.

    usually fronts are done to the maximum at the factory anyway.

    if you have alot of time its not that hard. i have done my rear three and they are spot on apart from one where the wind caught it (It will be redone in time lol) the key is to take your time use lots of water and cut a good template also spend alot of time. it alot cheaper

    I did mine myself mate, cost me £17 (I think) for a roll of tint from halfrauds, got a spray bottle, a squeegee, loads and loads of soapy water and a sharp knife i think they look fine and it saved a fair amount of money.. Just take your time and you'll be fine.
