    Decals '13 wrx

    I saw a thread on here a little while back just after picking up my new SWP 5 door and it was a SWP WRX but had a red wrx decal on the drivers side stock side skirt. I liked the look of it, subtle, but don't remember who's car it was. I anyone knows can you point me to the thread?

    I have the decals, but no I'm nervous about putting them and thinking about two color shades of my white down the road (especially down by the side skirts) any thoughts? Will these produce any negative affects down the road on my paint?

    Sure it could affect paint in the long run...dirt and grit and such can get caught around the sticker.

    Plus just by looking at it...I honestly don't think I like how it look. But, that's my opinion of course

    Yeah, I agree, I held them up to the car and definitely not.

    These decals won't affect the paint. Look how many vehicles around have decals and signs on them.

    Yes. It will affect the paint.

    The paint not covered by the sticker will age faster (become dull and oxidized) and gradual swirl marks will appear so if you do take the sticker off, it will be like a tattoo. (you can polish it out though)

    How I know?
