Rubbing Strips

I know it's all down to personal preference, but would you say a white evo gp would look better with or without rubbing strips?

Also in what colour?

And if it decide not to get them, can I buy them aftermarket?

Thankyouuuu!!

I went for the black dealer fit option on my white sporting, I personally think it looks really good. I wouldn’t buy a car without rubbing strips though… saves any dings in Tesco car parks.

Re: Rubbing Strips

Personally, I think the Evo looks much better with the strips, no matter what the colour of the car. The sides look a little flat, without it.

Re: Rubbing Strips

Ive ordered Ambient White with Italian stripes and would like to add some white body coloured ones as said for idiots opening doors into the side although judging by the website looks as though i would after order afterwards as the stripes and rubbing cant both be added

Re: Rubbing Strips

Well I definitely think they look better with them. Colour wise I prefer body colour though the black ones would go with the bu,per inserts so might not be so bad on the white car.

As far as getting them added later it costs an arm and a leg so definitely add it onto your order.

Re: Rubbing Strips

I agree to black ones to match the bumper inserts front and back, however I got silver inserts so I have silver side strips. Depends what model and colour you've chosen
