Its not that hard to do - the first T4 i did took me 2 days now im down to a day, it all depends on how many windows you have as they take the time to do a neat job - if you are using the hi flex liner that streches then start from the middle of the section you are covering and work outwards - less to pull off if you go wrong I: oh and apply spray glue to both surfaces not just on one or it will be on the floor after a week or two.

pretty easy diy job,i got the carpet and glue from mega van mats,they will send you out samples,i got a pair of scissors from asda/tesco,cheap,couple of quid,these were very good for doing the bigger cuts,get plenty stanley blades cause they get blunt pretty quickly,i had never done anything like this before but it turned out very good

Definitely have a go yourself. I got mine from Megavanmats too and its really good stuff to work with. You'll be surprised how good it turns out, you'll be surprised how well it stretches around thing's like B pillars, plus its a nice feeling to look at it after and think "I did that":).
Just get plenty of good carpet and straight stanley blades
