Hey all.

I am wanting to add some stripes to my new black 2013, but I am not sure what color I should do...

My initial thought was matte black on black, but I just did a test by placing a section from a matte black fender hash mark set, to see how it looked, and it just didn't look like what I wanted.
Made it look more like a smudge or fade in the paint.

I want something more subtle.
Thinking maybe a gray?

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I think grey is a great idea.
I love the way this looks:

How about instead of matte black, you use satin
It looks like matte black, but glossy!
Or you could do carbon fiber stripes!

I have an all black 2014, I'll attach an image and I'm thinking of doing plasti dip black + 1/2 coats of silver metallizer for some silver flaking in the hash marks / hood strips I'll be doing.

I'll let you know how it looks for sure, I like the idea of subtle 2 tone myself, and dark grey/silver seems to compliment the black the best without completely losing the stealth look. The colors/white look great, but I'm not that into "loud" cosmetics.

What do you mean by doing "plasti dip black + 1/2 coats..."?

I am currently thinking gray or POSSIBLY white.

BTW: Is there any difference between the 2013 and 2014 (besides the year of course) :)

Wow. Thats a lot nicer looking then I would have expected.
Any pictures of it in normal daylight?

Is that a specific type of blue, or just plain old blue?

You should def go red!!! Red on black looks soooooo good
Thinking that would be "loud"

BTW: Does that picture you attached have anything on it? I am not noticing anything, but the picture doesn't come up very large

Oh no. Lol. I found that on google to try and support my case. But blue is my favorite.
The car's paint looks like it is matte black and not the standard "gloss"

Boom. I wanted this. But it'll only look good painted. No vinyl.
Any idea what the cost is (approx range) for getting stripes (just top stripes)

Should I do vinyl or paint? Would like it to look classy and not look cheap or "raised" looking, so I am was thinking paint, however I know paint is a whole lot more #@$#@ permanent (say if I was to decide I dont like it???) and more expensive then vinyl, but can you get vinyl to look like it is more "painted on" then a raised look?

It's still kinda raised, just not as much as vinyl
