Why dont you take a digital picture of your whole car and photoshop it out. See if you like the look.

I for one dont like pin stripes.

Yea, chances are if you have pinstripes, you paid for it in some dealer fee which for me included pinstripes and edge guards which i ended up taking off anyway.

I got my car [EX V6 Coupe, 6 Speed, San Marino Red] Tuesday and refused to pay for the dealer installed stripes. I de-striped it Saturday. Looks much better IMO!

It's easier to clean and wax the car without the pinstripes .

Damn!

The dealership I go to puts splash guards and pinstripes into a dealership package for $150 bucks. That dealership you go to is ripping people off big-time .
