Vinyl hood/side strip style opinions

My 2012 Premium ended up being totaled in an accident but I really like the the vinyl stripes on it and wanted to get an opinion on a style I saw on a Boss the other day.

Since I will be in the market for a 13 this month I wanted to get an opinion on what people thought of this tape style on a silver 13 with black stripe or possibly a blac k13 with red stripes.

I dig the boss style ones I just would think it would be cooler if the hood stripe was a little larger. Another color that may look cool is a metallic blue depends do you want subdued or you wana be noticed. Stealth = black wild= color

I planning on a silver or black 13 so blue would be a bit odd i think. If I was going to get a white one though the blue might go well.

I am not very big fan of any really visible side stripes, but the hood looks pretty good on that silver Mustang

I still love and prefer my "stealth-look" hood stripe on my black car I installed them myself few months ago and bought them from Ebay (paid only $39 including the shipping).

I only have a light grey pin stripe (with extremely small Mustang logo ) on both sides. Those were already installed by the dealer when I bought the car almost 2 years ago.

You can see the pin stripe better on the pictures below. Stripe is about 2 inches below the side windows.

I really like your stealth stripes on there. The silver mustang in that pic was the one I owned that got totaled

I've been sort of reconsidering going with the Boss style stripes on a GT, I think it may look too contradictory seeing how you would expect them on a Boss

I love the black w silver but my Interior has the seats with a single grabber blue strip and blue thread stitching so I feel the stripes must be blue for me
