Not for me, but it's your car and you have to like it.

Me personally, I think it adds a bit of contrast to your car and sets it apart from others. I bought my M3 in May of this year and when i went to check it out, I felt it was missing something. My car is alpine white with fox red interior so I decided to add a black and red pinstripe. Upon receiving my car I was immediately happy i made the choice to pinstripe it. I'm interested to see how many fellow members have gone the route of putting pinstripes on their cars. These aren't the greatest photos. Took them on my iPhone.
Looks horrible. U shouldnt get an m3 if u want to stand out. Maybe bak in 2008. And i m 25.

Haha that picture is ridiculous. That guys lost his mind. Apparently most of you members thought i have too. All in all i respect most of your opinions and this thread has otherwise been filled with funny ass comments. The polyester suit one and the OEM coat hanger for the members only jacket had me laughing. Everyone has different preferences some like ESS superchargers, others AA. I happened to put two small pinstripes on my car. That was my preference. In the future I could always have them removed. At least this was a different topic to talk about. Hope i provided some laughter to others. Have a safe and happy holidays all and drive the hell out of your M3!

That you did...
Have a good holiday also, and I'm glad you took this in stride and didn't come back all "typical M3 owner" douchy. Props.

It's tough to tell in your pics, but it does seem oddly placed. Perhaps take some better photos (up close and full view) and maybe you'll change some of the mind of some of the haters
Just saw this on eBay:

Lol damn you're really getting hammered on those stripes After seeing them in person myself, I have to say they really don't look bad and are pretty subtle. They certainly don't stand out as "what was that dude thinking"
