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.

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"

I've got the "standard" spoiler on my car, does the stripe go on this one??

also any photos from the top looking at the front and rear stripes installed?

ALSO how many nuts hold down the standard spoiler..

Standard stripes start up the spoiler but do not wrap over the top.
Here is a shot of mine from about 125 feet up crappy cell phone quality but I didn't have a camera at work this day lol.
just imagine the stripes continuing where the red changes to grey.
