    Hey - I just saw this photo - nice stripe!

    Did you make it? Could you post a couple more pics of your car?

    I had it installed by a company that's doing car wraping and lettering. It's pretty expensive but I like the mini look with it. It cost me nearly 800$ with taxes.

    Best is to have it painted on but it's not as removeable after.

    It's a risk that after you remove the stripes, there might be a change in the paint underneat compare to the paint elsewhere, so if you decide to put stripes, it's stripes forever and they must be reinstalled after about 5 years as they get dammaged, or the car must be repainted to hide the marks that the stripes left.

    I decided that my car should always have these stripes so I went with it and I will have them resinstalled for 700$ plus taxes every 5 years or when they are dammaged. Time will tell how long they last. I think what will happen is that I will have them painted on instead.

    Yes. That's the best personalisation I've seen to date. But 800$ wouldn't it cost about that to paint it? I guess while it's still a lease. Did they tell you that you have the option to buy before the lease is finished?

    Yes I have the option to buy it off for 6k when the contract is over and if the car keep going well like that I will surely buy it.

    It would cost 1200$ here to have this paint job done, so I might go that route in the future once these stripes are dammaged. They chip easily because I already have a few rock chips in front and it's not so easy to fix since I don't want to paint the white paint underneat.

    That's not what I meant. I don't think a lot of people know this. Me for example. I'm in a 3 year lease and my residual is 8.5k. I could go to my dealer in 2 years and say I want to buy it, I could do it right then. It will just be the 8.5k plus my monthly payment before tax for a year to buy it out.
    just saying it's an option.

    Yes I have that option as well, but no money to do it lol! I will wait until the end of my contract and gather that money till then.
