Guys can you please suggest a color for stripes on a Black GTS?

I was thinking a metallic grey color.

Would like to see pictures of your car!

Thanks a lot

Silver. I have seen blue that looks good as well. Red looks horrible.

Silver stripes were factory option and a great color combo. It will not make the car look out of sort like other colors. I just did mine graphite/silver and it looks absolutely awesome. also when looking for material to stripe find the highest grade, highest metal content and longest warranty (9 years). this material is low profile, it is temp sensitive when doing application, have a professional do it. when done it would look painted rather than vinyl. best of luck

i had my graphics guy do it all. all he said is that 9 year warranty on material is the highest quality stuff, versus 2-3 or 5 years. i would assume when you are looking for vinyl you just need to make sure the warranty length is the 9 year. hope it helps. my neighbor just saw the car over the week end and said that stripes looked painted rather screaming cheap vinyl. hope that helps:D

I know I'm kinda late to the party, however, if your going to do stripes and your not sure. do the same thing I did. I had my paint guy get a piece of metal, paint it Flame Red (Which was the color of my 10) and then apply the different paint colors I was thinking. Because I was going with a pearl paint, I wanted to see more than just some photo. Because the colors I was thinking were all on one paint board I was able to see clearly how each looked in the sun, shade, night all together and made my choice from there. If your serious, take a serious approach. My paint guy did the paint board for free, not sure if your paint guy would do the same.
