I would like to see it actually on an Intrigue, not just in a picture. I dunno it might come off as a tad ricey, I dont know if it goes with the overall subtleness that is the Intrigue....thats kinda the whole look ive got goin right now....any thoughts?

Ive also been pondering getting one of these http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Oldsm...QQcmdZViewItem for a long time to cover up the untinted area around my 3rd brake light...but the dimensions on the decal are smaller than the area needing filled, I asked them if they could make me a bigger one, but never got a reply.

You know, I felt the same way until I saw Cody'* (fuelforthesoul1999) car. It'* very cleanly done, and blends into the car well. As long as it'* not super street or something, I think it'* fine.

two thumbs down on the windshield decal. you remember what kind of car you drive without the reminder, and anyone that cares will probably know or find out.

Is that banner in a bonneville or pontiac font?!?!

Not a fan, i had the BC one on my back window, and I hated it. Huge part of it was, it was too contrasty with the car, and stuck out like a sore thumb.

But it also kills the lines of the car. I love the overall look of my car, and would never put any badges, etc on there that would detract from it.

You need a chop. It only works well with certain cars. They need to be mean cars with a mean stance, and the big font won't detract from the look (and sometimes add). A newer Grand Prix would look good with a window banner IMO, but I can't really tell if it would look good on your car until I see it chopped on.
