So I put some stripes on my car

I think they look cool, but of course now I'm super identifiable, so I can't really use this one as a getaway car.

I thought they are supposed to go on the other side of the car. Are yours placed where they are for any special reason? Looks nice, BTW.

Nah, no special reason. I've always liked them on the right, especially on left-hand-drive cars - seems like it balances the weight of the driver The Fiat in the last picture came to me with those stripes painted on - the previous owner had more nerve than I. The stripes on the Z4 are just vinyl that I can peel off when I go to sell the thing.

Maybe, maybe not. The paint under the stripes will not have been exposed to the strong sun of Texas as well as weathering by dust, car washes, etc. You may be in for a VERY rude surprise when "sales day" comes by.

Hmm .. Liking the stripes, color's not for me though. But then I'm boring when it comes to colors. And I'd never make my car too bold 'cause I do piss a lot of people off and like to disappear fast
