Opinion Poll on Pinstripes

Whenever I finally take delivery of my Black Sapphire e92 with the Red Coral Interior, I am thinking about pinstriping it with the "M" colors (///)

I am just looking for peoples opinion on this. Whether it is go with that color combo, go with another color combo, or no pinstripes at all.

Lemme know...

Thanks!

There are certain cars that can pull them off. Like a FordGT. The E9X is not one of those cars

I think I get the point...

The wife is the one that was pushing for it, so I was just trying to think of a color combo that would look good, but I guess I now have to get this thought out of her head.

Thanks for being honest everyone.

Goodness people...there's a difference between pinstripes and racing stripes! I don't think either would be suitable for an E9x though.

I already have the "No Fear" sticker waiting. It matches my tattoo (j/k)

wont look that good on your black saphire car. the M blue color will not show well and you will only see the other two color and it will look bad (i think). The car already have a nice and very visible crease line down the side already.

Interesting when someone does their car like the WTCC car everyone loves it but when someone suggests doing just the stripe part everyone is up in arms. I do agree it would look bad on black though, but a white car could pull if off if done right.
