I bought this car out of Arkansas just a week ago with 64000 miles on it.
It's a certified one-owner car and has spent its entire life in the rust-free climate.
I'm very pleased with the car and look forward to meeting some of you jokers, haha!

It is painted Greystone, has HUD, heated seats, sunroof, and XM radio, just how I would have ordered it!!

If you choose to ditch the stripe and get sick of taking it off by hand, I have a 3m stripe off wheel you can barrow.

I would take it off. Its positioned too low IMO. Plus I think these cars look better without stripes most of the time.

The latter half of the stripe doesn't curve enough to follow the lines of the car. Not likin' it.

Thanks for the input guys, I felt the same way when I first saw the car.
I will be taking it off when the weather improves.
Besides, I want to run the buffer over it and take care of a few minor issues you can't see in pictures.

Seth, thanks for the offer, but I have that covered. :beerchug:

The stripe is now history!!
And I love it!

She's got her "tramp stamp" now, too!
I feel like part of the group now!
If I remember correctly, this was the etched glass color.
(I did buy 4 different styles)

The lack of stripe make the GXP look "more better"! LOL!
