Re-tinted one of my rears when i bought mine as the corner was peeling badly. Only use the 14.99 stuff from a motorfactors and it took some patience. But was pretty happy with the result. I was quoted 290 to strip and re do all the rears professionally.

Get some pro quality tint film and do it yourself, piss easy.
I used to take the door glass out to do LR's, not hard.
Cut the film about 1mm from the edge of the glass, and when fully dry, run some clear nail varnish over the edge to stop it lifting

Longdog you top man, your only in the West Riding, why don't you pop over to mine and show me the way to do it? You'd be repaid with a good dinner and a beer

Thats clever that is, using the nail varnish

Mine is the Serengetti version that the rear windows are all factory tinted anyway, I think it looks much better than non-tinted.

Ive used that stick on tint stuff from Halfrauds before on another car, its as good as you manage to do it :P The corners did start to peel on it after a few months. Ill bear the nail varnish in mind if I ever have to do it again!
