I think the small decals are fine, the huge plastered on ones eh...not so much.

Subtle is nice. If I had to choose, I'd pick the ones that are just a bit off from the body colour so they're noticeable, but no blatant, I kind of like that. Though I'd never do it myself. Doesn't do anything for function really.

As those of you who know my car know, I like go-fast decals!

The problem with the big-ones....way too much attention! But then again, isn't that why we all have loud exhausts??

well its not really a what you guys thinks of rice or nice. its what it comes down to the driver. some ppl might put it on cause its what they desinged in their head and having it on will always make a car look diff from every other car.

ps. GC8_specC the bottom pic has a STi engine in it so he has the right to have that on.

I love decals. It spices up the mood. Just imagine going into an import show with no decals on any cars that's in it.
The member's car gallery gets boring sometimes because everyone's car looks the same, with same exterior mods

Ah, that's okay.
There's a nice GC with a big "Subaru" decal in Port Kells. I thought it may have been you.

I'm all for decals.. as long as they are tastefull.. and well don't take away from the vehicle sporting them..

I've got a few decals on my car, all i might add cut myself by hand, they're not store bought

- a silver SUBARU in each of the rear windows
- a silver jdm style gc8 2.5RS decals on the bottom of the rear quater panels in front of the wheels..
- a black AlpineStar logo above the fender marker lights
- a black "the Shocker" on the gas door..

but you know, its the owners own personal taste, and if someone wants to sport HUGE STI decals.. then let them sport them with pride.., thats my opinion, Sean-
