Hey Matt. Nice Si you got there. Welcome to the site. Pretty soon you will be infected with that disease that spreads here called moditis. It starts small and soon becomes virulent. Enjoy your stay here. :vtec: :dancing: :thumb:

Trust me on this:

Take the car back to the dealer - and ask them to take off the pinstripe. (And the dealer sticker if they put one on)

Nice car!!!

Hey Matt! Welcome Bro, you can take those stripes of yourself man. I did and they just peel right off. Some people like them but most don't. The only reason they are on there is so the dealer can bump the price up a little more to make the profit higher. The factory made a beautiful car with the natural lines and it doesn't need that tape.
You wont see a porsche or any other sports car with them on there either. Now a cool sticker or two wont hurt placed in the right spots.
But anyway come on up to the dragon with that thing and run with me and some others. I live in Atlanta.:wavey:

Hey whats up man? Nice looking car you have there and enjoy your stay here. Yeah I agree with everyone else on the pinstripe(take it off). I also took off my civic emblem it looks awesome, well the dealer did it and left a few swirls but I saw them do it wrong so if you are tech savvy lol do it yourself.
