I think it would look good, as long as the stripes don't have "Boss" written on them. What color were you thinking of getting them?

Re: C-stripe or no stripes?

I have stripes on both my cars, I had them painted on the 05, the 07 came with them. I like stripes, not everyone does. If you stripe, you will make your car look one way, if you don't put on stripes, it will look another. I am not sure that it is that important what I think, it is what you think that matters. Stripes aren't permanent if they are vinyl... Hell, I would stripe it if it were me, but like i said, it is your car, make it look like you want. Stripes are retro, imho...

I'm just asking for opinions...

Re: C-stripe or no stripes?

I understand that, I think it looks more retro with stripes but would look good either way..
