RPI Cabon Fiber Side Vent decals

So my carbon fiber side vent decals came (no they are not real carbon fiber, just hydro dipped carbon fiber. I spent the extra cash and got the ABS plastic ones over the vinyl. Not particularly happy with the ABS plastic. NOTE: I am not referring to the quality of the product, it is top notch quality. Just that the plastic does not want to conform to the shape of the side vents so parts of them are not actually sticking on. I am planning on emailing RPI in a few moments to talk to them about this issue. I'm driving to Pittsburgh tonight for a dinner at the Pittsburgh Brewery and I don't want them to fly off while I am driving. That'd be bad.

Again I'm very happy overall, just wishing I had gone with the vinyl so that they could conform better. But oh well, not a big deal. I'll post what RPI says about the topic, hopefully it is good news.
