Would These Vinyls Look Good on a 2011 328i Sedan (Black)

My car looks better than most on the road, however it looks a bit plain. I want something that would turn more heads, and make it look more Sporty/Sharp. So i thought, "Maybe vinyls would help". So here i am asking you guys for your thoughts. Do you think these vinyls would look good on my black 2011 328i Sedan? They're M3 stripes, I'm just worried people would ridicule me because it's not a M3. Here's the link to the vinyl.

Just my opinion, but you hit the nail on the head, enough m3 badges flying around, consider a new set of wheels to really set it off, or some carbon splitters and thin spoiler?

Post up some pics of your car.

Your car your choice, if you like it, do it. Who cares about others. If you get bored or dont like it later, just remove it.

I personally wouldn't do it even if I had an M3.

Would it damage the paint if I removed it after a while?

Tint your windows, lower it and that will give your car a much more aggressive look (even with stock wheels) than any vinyl can. Adding that vinyl is gonna make your car look ricey. Imo.

No damage. Vinyls don't do any damage.
If you really like it, go ahead, do it. You never know how it will look in real.

Thanks man, I'll keep this in consideration. Maybe I'll go for a Red on Black theme, red Halos/Red Fin/M colors in the grill. (:

This would look GREAT on your car......while it was on the track, but on the street, I'm not a fan.
