Paint on modern cars doesn't really fade if kept clean and waxed even on a yearly basis. The film is supposed to be transparent to UV (and all other) radiation, and indeed, from my experience at least, I could not detect any discoloration or difference in fading for paint under the film.
I didn't apply the film to the doors--the kits don't normally include whole panels to cover doors, although I have heard of custom (pro) paint protection shops that can wrap your entire car if you'd like (probably a $1500-2000 operation, however, which I would question the value of).
I should also mention that the trouble I had with the mirrors and headlights might have been because of imprecise cuts on the kit--as I said, different firms cut them differently. You can also check with xpel.com and stongard.com (both more expensive).

Thank you for the information. I will try to hunt an installer.
I plan to keep the car for a long time, so I think its worth doing the crucial areas. My other car has scratches all over the door handle and that's what I want to prevent.
