I am about to sign the paperwork on my new metallic black GT 86.I don't know if I want the decals on the bonnet, roof and boot. Has anyone got the black car with grey decals and if so can you send me a picture of what one looks like as I would like to see?
Thanks

imo, nope. They look dreadful, but some seem to like 'em.

If you like them, go for it.
It'd be a shame to fork out north of £25k and not get what you wanted.

I toyed with stripes but decided not to have them. I think they are a dull silver on the black car. Ask yourself if you want a Fast n Furious look or a mean black machine... at the end of the day its a personal choice. One says' look at me I'm fast' the other 'passes you and laughs at you' and you know its fast lol. I trawled google to find a black with stripes but couldn't find one. Someone posted pics from dealerships on one of the other threads and there might be a stripey one there.

They had one in the black with strips near Truro where I took one for a test, if it were my money I'd be picking them off after just looking at the car for a few minutes :(

I know they appeal to some, but I feel they do not do it any favours myself.

I have has a test drive and I thrashed it and it is sooooo much fun! :)

I was contemplating black side stripes on my silver one but wasn't 100% keen on them so thought i'd wait until I got the car as there are bound to be some cheaper alternatives available then. Maybe i'll design something of my own!

In the flesh I've seen a grey with silver decals and a ginger with black, plus all the dealer pictures of various on this forum and IMHO I would steer clear. But just my taste

i ordered them on my Orange car but when i saw an orange car with them on it i changed my order and removed them as it made the paint look flat as decals are matt...at the end of the day if you like them then have them..

I agree the matt is what put me off; in my mind I wanted a nice metallic black car with nice blended metallic grey decals so it looked classy. But I am afraid the matt grey has put me off; stands out too much.
Booked second test drive for 09.30am Saturday morning when the roads are empty and I can rag it about the streets of LS12! Will sign the papers and place my order then

RRG Macc has a black with silver decals in the showroom, personally I don't like them but see their facebook page for some photos

Personally I wouldn't have decals, but if I was forced to I would go for a black car with black decals. The stickers look like they have a matt finish so would be a subtle contrast with the same colour car.
