Vinyl Stripes: 3m or a generic brand?

I'm getting ready to order my stripe kit. I think I've narrowed it down to the style I want (Bumble Bee Stripe kit from T3), but now I have to decide on which on to buy. Does anyone have any experience with vinyl stripes and can offer advice on brand and quality?

There are 2 sellers on eBay that I'm considering. One is advertising that his stripes are 3M brand for $167. Here is the ad.

The other is advertising the same stripe kit, but no brand and his are only $89. Here is the ad.

So, does brand matter with regard to quality for vinyl stripes? Is it worth it to spend the extra money to get the 3M brand stripes?

Thanks,
sr

I ordered my 1st set of gill vents from ebay. I will never make that mistake again. They lasted maybe 6mths before they sarted to crack. Check out bigwormgraphix.com you will not be sorry. They have good quality vinyl.

What Glen meant to say was if you look in the marketplace section of this site, you'll find a bunch of vendors selling a plethora of stripe kits for your car.

Welcome to the site!

Atleast to an extent. The companies who try to completely rip off the community I protest openly.
