I was just looking at some pictures of the car I bought and I noticed it has pin stripes.

I have never seen pin stripes on these cars, does anyone else's car have the stripes?

Just curious,

Matt

A lot of the times dealerships install them. Usually it's an excuse to charge you an extra $100. You can take them off with some time and a hair dryer.

The dealership (College Park, MD) that my dealership (Rahall Honda) got my Insight from had put pinstripes on it, and wheel locks.

No doubt to "bump" up the sticker price. I simply told my dealership that:

1) I didn't want the car with pinstripes, and if I didn't like the way it looked - I would NOT accept delivery
2) I didn't order wheel-locks, so either take them off or include them in the price we had already negotiated.

Fortunately for me, I didn't mind the pinstripes and they decided to include the wheel locks at no extra charge. I also got a free year of maintenance out of them.
You can just barely make out the pinstripe in this picture, it follows the lower window line....hardly noticable at all. If anyone wants a more close-up pic, of the pinstripes, let me know and I'll take one and post it.

BTW...The MD dealership wanted $150 for this little 'artwork'
