Pin Stripes on our cars

Who here got the pinstripe on their car. i did regretably, i wish i didn't. my dealer told me that the stipe is lifetime warrenty and no matter what happens they will repaint it for free. but what if i want to take it off? will they take it off for free? or maybe change the color of the stripe?

And no i haven't called my dealer i am just rambling and wondering what everyone else thinks. so don't flame me.

Originally the car i was going to get had one on it but i hate pinstripes, so i waited an extra week until they got more cars in.

Yeah, me too. When I went to pick up my vic, it had the fugly (IMO) pinstripe. I had to wait a few more days until the dealer got another EBP coupe without the damn pinstipe. I think it takes away from the look of the car.

with me it was a choice of their legal *** [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-puke.gif[/IMG]85% tint OR pinstripes
-went aftermarket with illegal tint and they couldnt refund me any cash because they said it was a specification for me to buy the car so I got F\/CKED there too!!

Mine came on the car. I just haven't bothered to take them off yet. I don't even notice them half the time.

my EBP Coupe came with pinstripes [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-puke.gif[/IMG] and i removed them a couple months ago...im so glad i did, they look crappy IMO. they just peeled off relatively easily but they left some damn residue since it was cold out when i removed them[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif[/IMG]

Juggaman will become famous soon enough
I made them take the tan pinstripes off of my car before I would buy it and drive it off the lot. Still don't understand why my car has those damn fender guards on it and I didn't pay for them...

I'll second that. It's pretty insignificant and I don't mind. Besides, it's been over a year and it would probably leave a mark if I took it off now.

Just peel those ugly things off!! You'll be glad you did... To help them peel, get a hair dryer and warm the tape up first. This softens up the adhesive and will not only make them easier to peel, but hopefully leave less residue.

Pinstripes are for Buicks and golfers. I made them take mine off before I'd drive the car off the lot. My GF got a new car recently with pinstipes and they are painted on! Who would take the time to paint those God-aweful things on a perfectly good car! It's a shame...

It depends on the dealership. My car came from a dealership that deals alot with used acura's, thus my stripes were painted on, arghhh, most higher level cars have them painted. I don't mind mine so much, but yeah Jugger, I got them damn fender guards too without paying, though I guess they might help with door dings an stuff here at school. Peace
