Graphics - yes or no?

After a somewhat 'colourful' thread asking for suggestions, I have taken advice on the matter and decided to take it to the vote.
Thanks to Hammerhead for the idea of the design below and to everyone else for their design ideas .... some better than others, but all were appreciated !!

Let the voting commence!

Side view for graphics
Side view for graphics


*edit* inserted plain view for comparison as suggested

No from me . . when you start introducing too much stuff into the mix its gonna go wrong - none of the supercars have any graphics, so I think it will just end up reducing professionalism of the finished article. I think its a great car as it is, and it would be a shame to ruin it.

Matt

Flicking between with and without, it does make it look a bit less slabby... I would make the blue thin stripes and the lettering a bit thicker, though.

No, for me.

I saw this car in the flesh prior to its paint job, and it is very compact - the photos make it look bigger than it is. I don't believe that it needs any trim.

Just my opinion, of course...

No for me. Looks perfect as it is.

Maybe change mind if they were a darker colour so more subtle..

NO from me!

I think it would detract from the clean taught lines of the car and make it look less classy. As mentioned in other threads, I love the car and particularly the colour.

Please don't do it Raz!

I think that looks awesome, really suits the car.

That's a yes by the way

Pete

EDIT: Just one thing, would it be possible to see that picture without the graphics, so we can have a side-by-side comparison?

Voted yes and seeing as it'll probably only be vinyls (?) they can be easily removed if the effect is not pleasing to the eye, as long as the preparation is correct, with ease.

As others have said though, anything more and you'd spoil your beautiful car.

I've voted no.


Far nicer are the areas where the light catches.

These change as the viewing angle changes.
