Easy question: yes or no to pin stripes?

Well, I took mine off and I think I like it better.

There was a sticky residue from whatever adhesive they used to apply them that is a bitch to get off. I ended up using Bug and Tar remover crap and there are still some smudges on it that I need to get out before re-waxing.

Any suggestions?

I didn't want a pinstripe when I got it...but didn't tell them cuz they hald already detailed it and had it pulled up before I could say anything so I left it and thought I would just take it off later. I took it off within a week of purchasing it and I am glad I did. I also had that residue from the pinstipe but it is gone now.

Yeah, the dealership does it when they get them. The dealership I got mine from had 2 different pinstripes on the RSX. one where you see it on the pic above and one a little lower and it stopped earlier in the back.

Honestly, it looks better up close...the camera just doesnt do it justice. I bought it recently. I paid like $55. I know a guy who owns a body shop near here, and he got a whole roll.

The one I had was two thin black stipes parallel to each other.

One thing I did like about them was that on the front fender, abotu a fifth of the way from the door hinge, there is an Acura logo that "brakes" the strips for about 2 inches.

I left that one to decide if I liked it by itself.

Here it is with the stripe:

If you look hard you can see the logo there.
