my car is white and had silver stripes. i removed them a little while back and i love it. definitely cleaner looking. only complaint is sometimes you can see where the striping was. the paint faded around it or something like that. really really not noticable.
yeah my car is black and the person who owned the car befor me i think his name is harold because when ever the car gets a little dusty you can se his name on the back right next to the se. so it looks lik haroldse. its getting lighter though i just keep polishing the hell out of it.
