If I had a different color than black, I would take the MCA stripe off. I still might, but on black it's almost like a ghost stripe and I like it at times.
DITTO ... but I've got a Kona Blue MCA. Very hard to see the stripes on there unless the sun is hitting it just right and I like it that way. If I had a lighter color car, I would probably not care for them and they would have to go.
Did a Car Cruise Friday night with 300 other cars and a Car Show Saturday. A lot of people stopped and looked at the "1st 2011 in the area" over this two day period, and still heard no negative comments about these controversial stripes !!
So to date, I've only had only had positive comments about these "ghost stripes".
