Has anyone tried one of the pre cut film window kits sold on Ebay??

I am thinking of getting on imported from the States as the exchange rate is so very good at the moment.

I had my window tints installed by an experienced installer independently recommended to me. I am very happy with the result.

IIRC the door windows on both sides of the Insight curve inwards both horizontally and vertically - meaning that the tint has to be placed on a convex surface. The installer carefully heat shrunk the film just enough to get a tight fit on the window. I would not try that at home ;)

He also trimmed the film to stop about 1mm before the edge of the glass to stop the edge of the film "catching" when the window closed.

I think it is unlikely that you will get a good result doing it yourself.
