A few years ago I installed the same product on the VW Golf TDI that I dumped. That installation was attempted in November on a cool day. It's much harder to install without wrinkles when it's cold. Turning on the VW's fog lights to generate some warmth helped, but it still didn't come out as well as on my Impreza when installed in the summer. Some people have used hair dryers to warm things up (the light's lense as well as the laminate itself).

Regardless, warmth is the secret to a good installation.
I also also told to use car wax and give it a good polish once in a while to keep it from deteriorating from elements/heat.
