Looks pretty good.

Wondering how much that dealer ad-on will set a person back.
(dealer greed is finally starting to bother me)
Probably a couple hundred dollars. The pinstripe looks good until it crosses over the front wheel well. The body contour does not enhance the look of the striping. .Nothing inherently wrong with pinstriping, just not on the SC.

Doesn't do a single thing for me, and I'd want it removed. But, obviously, opinions on it vary and someone will like it. But by doing that before it's sold, they've probably eliminated a few potential buyers of that vehicle.

Mine has the stripe.i kind of like it. It looks like it swoops up from the fender to the taillight. In my opinion it gives the eye like the back is a little higher giving it kind of a 70's jacked up back end. It also kind of gives a little break from all that white. The only SC's that have found in my area (total of 5) have all been white.

I like pin striping. I had it added to couple of vehicles and my Elantra has it. IMO the stripe should have continued forward around the front fender to the headlight and around the back would have been nice.

I personally don't like it once it gets more than an inch onto the front fender. Feels weird they made it come in tangent to the fender curve.
Yeah, there's a clear body line that goes up on the fender and creates a crease that terminates at the tip of where the large grill/DRL lights is.

Dealer down here did that on the last car I bought... $399 :oops:

1761


Told them there was no way I was paying for that (or any of that other baloney -- the windows weren't even tinted), in fact I'd pay them $50 to remove the pin stripe. I spent an hour of my time with the heat gun peeling it off as soon as I got home...

If the buyer wants it, wonderful, do it. But... don't just go slap pin stripes on every new car as a money grab. Huge pet peeve.

That's a great deal on the Nitrogen! Only $199.00 ?!?! LOL. :LOL:

Seriously though... $1395 mark up for... let's see...
  • Tint... Maybe $300 (if you got good tint elsewhere)
  • Pin Striping... $50
  • VIN Etch... $50
  • Nitrogen...
  • 1765

At best... $400 value.

Out here in Arizona we get the "Desert Protection Package". LOL!

LOL, I'm dumb. I thought they wrapped the roof black... uh, no, obviously they would just start with a black Santa Cruz in the first place. :whistle:

Assuming they had a black one n stock to begin with. If not, it could be a wrap on the roof too.

EDIT: I just looked at the listing on the dealers page. It is a black SC. Sorry, I tried.
