Get an idea.. and colors..and go to a decal shop... they can do it better and make it faster than shipping.. and probably cost less...

Just an idea for ya..

I agree ...it isn't a good look...it doesn't do much for me either but then I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to decoration.

One thing I think needs to be considered is context - I always associate that type of stripe with mid 60s - early 70s pretend "sports" cars (like a Ford Escort or a Capri...remember the hood securing pins and the larged blacked out patches on the hood itself? Yeech!). There would be more merit in having it on a BMW of that era.

The E30 design may now be old but it ain't that old-looking (in my very biased opinion). And it's too classy a car to mess with to that extent.

Just my two cents....

I think a racing stripe can look good, it's all about style. I personally like it to be centered or atleast symetrical. If you had a roll cage in there and stuff it would look a whole lot better. Don't make your car look like a race car and cops won't think you're a race car though...

I've always been more of a fan of sleeper cars anyway.

When I think of racing stripes I think of a white car with two mid-sized ones, like 3-4" side by side and centered. And not all shiney, has to look like a race car, not a show car.


Does anyone know where racing stripes come from? Who invented them?

actually with your car being they dark metallic silver that it is i think the black strip would look sick...one of the few cars it does look sick on i say go for it....if you dont like it take it off...simple as that...all you need is a hairdryer to remove it along with some Goo Gone...post pics if you do it im excited to see...

im not a huge stripe fan and would prolly never do it but if i see it and it looks good props to you
