    Factory GT3 Decal's

    Does anybody know how factory fit GT3 decals look? Will the GT3 be left aligned or centered?

    Personally I dont like the centered graphic...

    e.g.

    or

     #1 is better!


    Re: Factory GT3 Decal's

    I think that the factory is centered. You can order the first sticker somewhere in the US. My brother ( Cram) has it on his yellow Gt3. Check with him for the adress

    Left aligned looks better IMO, but decals from factory should be centered.

    Thanks thats good to note guys.  I too prefer the left aligned - not a fan of the centred at all.

    Not sure if I will go with decals at all on the GT3 order but if I do I wanted factory fit left justified really.  Guess that wont be happening!

    The place that does the aftermarket ones is the place I linked the graphics from :

    http://www.porschestripes.com/gt3.html

    Other big positives for the aftermarket are :

    • They have a greater choice of colours
    • They are cheaper than OEM (even including shipping and import tax to the UK).
    • They have the benefit of being the full lenght of the car - I believe the factory decals only include the mid section (i.e. dont include the tails on the front and rear bumpers).
    • Based upon talking to an 997 GT3RS owner, I believe if you get factory fit decals you do not get the armourguard just behind the doors, thus leading to an increased number of stone chips. This may of course be for the very good reason that the decals dont stick properly over the top of it!

    Me think so.

    (to me) the left seems to be more in balance with the car's visual momentum - helps make the car look like its in motion.

    Correct. This is a big problem. I have seen many cars that have been completely wrapped using the clear film. THis time around i am going to get my car done as the front end of my Carrera already has a few stone chips.

    BTW i like the Martini stripe on the Cayman on that website....


    Re: Factory GT3 Decal's

    I prefer the 1st one...

    Re: Factory GT3 Decal's

    Yeah I love the GT3's Ive seen with Martini stripes on various forums.  Im still tempted with doing it myself but the GT3 is a pretty serious look-at-me car anyway and I am worried that Martini stripes might just attract too much attention of the undesirable kind!

    These guys (Racoon Wraps) have been recommended to me by a chap who has martini stripes on his GT3 and they certainly look like they did a good job. They have a few branches across the UK. Here is a GT2 in full body martini stripes http://www.raccoon.co.uk/upload_image/9643fbcd54.jpg
