Default Opinion on windshield banner

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ponti...spagenameZWD1V

So what do you guys think? I've seen a few people with these on BC... and they looked decent. I'm not sure what color I'd get. I was thinking chrome, but that doesn't really match anything else, but it'd stand out from the green paint. So white would be a definite possibility... and I'm pretty sure they don't have a green that would match the color of the car. Not trying to add any horsepower with this

Here'* a pic of the car it would be going on... original graphic was too small for photoshop to cooperate with me.

Well it looks like they have a bunch of colors so you could go with a green that was close, or I was thinking like a silver or the chrome like you said. I think it would match the rims, clear corners, chrome bumper molding. Dbeast has one but its different lettering, etc, but it would give you an idea of what chrome/silver would look like.

My opinion on windshield banners is no. I never liked them and doubt I ever will. I know what kind of car I have. Hey, you asked for opinions!

I'd say silver, white or a close match to your green.

only thing is, it seems like it would be small

It'* like a theft deterrent ... you know he doesn't want to steal your car now because it'* "hideous".

Some look good if done right. Why not ask the seller for small samples of the green he lists in the auction. If he'* cutting anything from it, he has small scraps and you can see what'* a close match to your paint. He'* only going to feed the scraps to his "vinyl frog" (inside joke to some vinyl cutters"

Wow... tons of different opinions lol. I'm wondering if it would be better to just go to a local vinyl shop to get a better idea of what I'm looking for. Either that, or I suppose I could just measure it. I just don't want to do it, then step away and say wtf that looks tacky lol.
