Mostly for 3 reasons.

A) Quality of workmanship from the person putting them on.
B) Durability of the material used
C) The stripes not extending past the hood.

While "C" is actually just a minor annoyance to the vast majority of people, "A" and "B" are the biggest reasons.

I must disagree, Draco. There is no basis for your ranking of A, B and C except your opinion. No polls have been taken here concerning workmanship or stripe durability.
In the poll that was taken concerning stripes extending past the hood http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9238, 130 out of 166 to date have said they wanted longer stripes. That's 78% of the people who voted that were actually getting stripes. Yet you call it a minor annoyance to "the vast majority of people." I believe you have that backwards, since those in the poll satisfied with the stripes ending on the hood was only 22%. Stripe length, C, is the only substantiated reason for not wanting factory or dealer installed stripes.

IMO... GM has no quality or worksmanship problem putting the stripes on. If there were then they would not be offered at all.

The issue seems to have started with the perception of potential increased and unacceptable production delays on the front of the car and a follow on decision making process that was and is incomplete. At the rear of the car the problem is the stripe termination points on both of the rear accessory air dams currently planned for production as accessories.

It is what it is- for now

I'm getting black and you guys are right, it will look great without stripes. But I like the sporty, retro look of the stripes, yet I don't want them to stand out too much and grab all one's attention, so I've chosen the cyber gray. Check out this Challenger with that color scheme: http://www.ridergraphix.com/Challenger_Silver_Hood.jpg And I believe the cyber gray is darker than those stripes on the Chally and so will stand out even less.

This shot reverses the colors, but gives you an idea of what the Camaro factory stripes ending at the front of the hood will look like: http://www.ridergraphix.com/Challeng...d_Install2.jpg and this http://www.ridergraphix.com/Challeng...erno_Hood1.jpg

I have to admit, the stripes ending on the hood is starting to grow on me. Plus, there's my desire to in no way resemble the fairly large number of Mustangs I see with the stripes on the fascia and even some down to the air dam, even though longer was the original Camaro stripe length.
It's whatever you like.

You have it made since the cosmetic flaws that are so visible with the lighter colors are hidden to a degree with the darker colors. Black is the best. I am glad you are going to be happy. GM however is not getting my money without a solid fix. IOM and short white rally's make me want to puke. The front of the car is a disaster.

Other complications that have emerged are HUD then no HUD and ABL and no ABL. See the main forum area for this emerging set of problems.

I am SO glad you pointed that out, COPO. I never stopped to think about the mailslot being a lot less visible on a black car and thus not clashing so much with the stripes. Thanks!
Still though, I'd prefer them onto the fascia, not wrapped around the front edge, just near it.

Yeah, I've checked out the ABL debacle. It's been on the CTS for two years; they'll git 'er dun.

But somewhere along the line I missed seeing that the HUD was a prospective feature. If I had known I guess I'd be really pissed, but since I haven't been looking forward to it....eh. Like you say though, it's another brick in the wall!

To rally stripe or not to rally stripe - this question has been bugging me for months! As of now I just have the plain SIM, but I have been on the fence about putting some black rally's on it since I ordered, well actually before then even lol! I think it will look better, but I have held off because I still want the car to look professional and all so when I pull up to a job interview hopefully no one will make any premature assumptions about me for driving a sportscar with racing stripes. I guess I'll vote no stripes for now, but that could change.
