Anyone have any experience with these Bumblebee stripes?

I was going to get them, but I wanted to know how they compared to the factory installed ones.

Personally I dont like those the outer corners of the front aren't rounded properly and they are expensive. there is a post in the cosmetics section with someone who used vinylgraphics.net with has a better stripe design in my opinion, just my opinion and they are cheaper.

Nothing personal against rider graphics they make top notch stuff.

I've seen several different sets of "bumblebee stripes", including the ones from Rider Graphix and Vinyl Graphics and those that were painted on etc. None of them are exactly like the stripes on the original bumblebee from the movie, although some are close. However, even my amateur eye can see they aren't quite right.

I want to get custom bumblebee stripes myself and so I have been paying a lot of attention to this. Surely someone can look at the pictures of the original car and design stripes to match. Heck, I have a 1/8th scale model of bumblebee, made by Jada, sitting on my desk at work and the stripes on it look perfect.

To answer your question more directly, I would NOT get factory stripes if you want the bumblebee look. Factory stripes aren't even close. They are flat instead of glossy and they're about a foot shorter.
