I get them every time we head to wine country. Narrow roads lots of traffic and bush hanging over the shoulders. Some wax and muscle seems to do a good job getting rid of em.

I love the pinstripes since its rare to see them but if I was buying back in 2001 ya I would say no way. Was it just a factory option that they put on ramdom models.

That's called 'the dealership owner needs to charge an extra $200 so he can make his boat payment' striping. The detailing/prep guys can put them on in about 10-20 minutes. I peeled them off my old compact I had years ago.

They're called pinstripes and they're never "factory". It would be a dealer add-on or aftermarket only.

Mine has pinstripes. I'd think they were dealer installed. They're decent, I guess. I'm not in a hurry to take them off, since you'll likely see where they were from sun fade.

Ya i know since the car is over ten years old so the pinstripes would really never go away since if you do have sun fade you would able to see were the were before.
