Rip those things off...it looks like the graphic on that riced-up lancer from 2F2F

IMHO, graphics = yuck!

I wouldn't mind the side stripes, but in a solid color and a little thinner.

I'm not a fan of the graphics or those rims (look way too big, at least from that angle - in fact its probably the angle I don't know)...

but its not like your car looks ugly or gross, so if you like it keep it.

Just a difference in opinion on style...and isn't style all about what you like and what makes you feel good?

Keep them…

You already spent the money on it, and would waste it if removed… At least it sets you apart from the hundreds of other Blue WRX’s around the area…

it really doesnt matter, only problem is that after a while, it can get chipped up and fade.. just like a tattoo, you really have to like it or just not have one.. one thing my body shop tells me that the fade on the rest of the paint will lighten and the paint under the vinyl will be bolder or darker than the rest of the car.. if that happens, either you can buy the same new vinyl or repaint the car..

I opt to repaint the car regardless.. who likes to see a gun-metal or black-chrome subie?

Well, it leaving a mark when you take it off can be a problem. But not a serious one. Most of the time that mark can disapear with a good buffing of the surounding area. For most cars though that have graphics I find that their owners take exceptional care of the vehicle. Ususally only a minor buff with a finishing polish will "blend" the shine in.

Oh Nos...no one told me that part!!!!

I voted no, only because I wouldn't put them on my car. Not saying it looks bad but I hate anything that draws cops to me quicker than other people.
