Funny you ask that. I just did that last week. I actually really like the the look. And I embossed ‘4S’ in the spoiler portion of the stripe.

Looks great, especially the Porsche on the side. Thanks for the pictures!

When you layout the stripe cut off the part that is going to go on the front fender and lay that separately after you've layed the rest of the stripe. If you try to do the whole stripe in one shot, when it hits the front fender its going to want to start going downhill because the fender juts outward which makes decal not parallel to the fender/rocker join line. Look at a lot of pictures of side stripe installs and you'll see what I mean. When it doesn't match that line its pretty obvious and looks a bit off. Separating the fender part makes it easier to follow that join line of fender/rocker because the transfer tape is not really flexible enough to pull it properly as one piece into position, if that makes sense. Good luck!
you mean on the front bumper in front on the front wheel or behind the front wheel?

anyone have an answer for this? I would think yes, but would like to hear from others.

Nice. Is that the 4” version. Fitted 1” from the bottom of the door?

Did you get them from Porsche. Did they remove the stone guard which sits ahead of the rear wheels?

Cheers!

Judging from looking closely at the above image it appears so. I cannot see the outline of one...

Mid-Grey
Pantone 423C

Interestingly, looking at this grey, the stone guards still appear to be in place.

But, this one (and I think this is from the factory) doesn't appear to have the stone guards in place. IDK...some do, some don't it appears.

Decal looks lower at the front than at the back? Or maybe just an optical illusion?
