Very nice looking vehicle HypnotiqSS. Also, happy to hear that you will be taken care of at the dealership as well. Looking forward to seeing the end result!

I hope that the aliens were gentle... those probes can be rough. It's clear to me that an alien craft was emerging from clouds above you while you were distracted by possible stripe irregularities.

Either your phone has issues, or they really messed up your stripes.

I love the black stripes on the red...but my car is 3 years old and my stripes look much less scratched than yours. You better ask them to restripe your car completely and NOT scratch the hell out of them!!!

I'd have them replace those stripes, the gouge is bad.
But those scratches look like crap as well.

There was probably an air bubble when the put it on and used the wrong tool to remove it.....Like a screwdriver

I hope they fix it right and not color it in with a sharpie

Good luck

Those look great except for the close up. They did terrible job. Looks like they used a brillo pad to rub them out. That gouge can't be fixed without replacing the stripe, I wouldn't think.

I do think black is the best looking stripe for a VR 5th Gen though.

Those look aweful, take it back immediately. All those scratches shouldnt be there. Forget the tear... even if there was no tear, thats unacceptable.

Yea I was gonna say the cut is bad but damn for stripes just put on those scratches marks are horrible. They better replace them free of charge.

glad to hear it worked out and they got you new ones. I had my dealer order 3x when I got mine replaced under warranty because they couldn't get them on correct and I wasn't settling for "almost"
