Default Should I keep it or lose it?

Ok I can't decide so I'm asking the southeast: Should I keep the subaru banner on my windshield (picture below) or remove it. It helps those of you out there to spot me easier, but that also means cops and vandals will notice my car more also. It doesn't look too bad cuz it's the same color as the car.

Thanks

Craig

i think it looks good. subtle. one suggestion i would make is to get a set of CF sidemarkers. you can get some that don't say "STi" from gruppe-s for like $40. even thought the headlights and rims tie in with the clear ones, i think it breaks the fender line. black would smooth it. of course, if i'm getting this picky, your car must look FREAKIN' SWEET!

I think it looks pretty nice. If it were white, I would say 'get rid of it'.

I agree that a set of CF side marker covers would look sweet.

Keep it so no one will confuse your car with a KIA.

If the front of your car already said "Subaru" I'd say ditch it. I hate it when people do that. But since it doesn't, keep it

well I can see what i'll be doing lol. today i took out the amber in my headlights with help from patick so my whole car is silver and red, so I haven't decided whether to keep the clear corner lenses or get cf, but for now i'll keep the clear.

Thanks

I'd get the CF ones.

The window banner isn't that bad, its not too flashy.

If it was like Bright Blue and said something like "Subaru STi Subaru STi Subaru STi" over and over again I'd definately get rid of it but its not bad.

I hardly noticed it that day you were over at Jimmys.

I like it. It would be nice with a tint strip behind it too.

Hey man, you got it in the first place because you like it. Don't change your mind because of vandals and cops. I think it looks fine. Since there are tons of WRX's on the roads now a days who don't frequent the boards here and aren't that enthused at seeing other WRX'ers like the nuts here, I vote keep it so we know who you are when we drive by. Have to know who to flip a bird to nowadays because of road rage on Atlanta roads

Agreed. Looks good, doesn't stand out. The side markers gotta go though. bailey got it right... breaks the smooth lines.

I said keep it - only because I can barely see it in the picture... Plus, if you like it, don't listen to SE to decide if it should stay on.
