Default what's with the fuel door cover?

Does Subaru and Scion think all the potential buyers are 12?

I'm getting a white brz premium next week and both it and the wrb that sold just before had this option.

Its complete garbage. I took mine off. Not sure who made the marketing decision for the fast and the furious sticker. it is really low rent. I tore mine off the car almost immediately. I'm just glad they can be removed easily with just a little heat and peeling.

I'm making the dealer take swap it lol.

Maybe I'll tell em it comes off and save em some money but I refused to pay for it.

Also who wants the chrome fender piece? I'll have one for a SWP to swap with a plain one . And I kinda want the trunk spoiler so anyone in the salt lake area and north I'd be interested in swapping trunks

I had the same feeling at first. Then I took a few photos of my new car and was totally embarrassed by the stupid sticker. Couldn't take it. Water under the bridge. My car is cleaner for it.

Oh, and I black chromed my fender trim. If I hate it later I'll just heat gun it an peel it off as well.

::Puts Paul Walker shades on::

I actually like my gas door decal.

Don't care for the chrome fender strip though.

I don't get the decal or fender bits, I did however tell the dealer that I'm ordering my car from that it absolutely will not have any of that on it. They're also going to leave it wrapped in the plastics and only peel off what's strictly necessary for the maintenance PDI.

Right now this is the only other one I have.


Going to do a wet sand, and then hit it with two part urethane clear coat for final finish. That way the UV rays won't fade it and lees likely to chip.

I think I'm going to try vinyl first since I can peel it off and it won't chip...not the best painter either lol

This is the "fuel door cover" thread!

And those stripes make the car look 'Merican.

When I removed mine, I was greeted with some small but deep scratches I couldn't polish out!

So glad mine didn't have that awful sticker. I would have made them take it off and swap the fuel door if there were scratches!

I'm actually not opposed to the LeMans stripes...
