The day after I got my Si I removed the factory decals because I wanted it to look "cleaner." After a few weeks I got kind of bored with it and thought it looked too plain. So I ordered a cheap set of red vinyl die-cut ones. I was afraid it would look to tacky but I think I kind of like it...not 100% sure yet. I might leave them on for a month or so and then decide.....I'm very fickle lol. I think they are a bit smaller than the factory ones were and they don't stand out as much as I thought they would. I plan to get the red "JDM" style badges and I think they will make a good look combined with the red side decals. It was getting dark quick when I snapped this crappy iPhone pic but I'll try to take some more tomorrow in the light. BTW, I measured them perfectly level so I don't know why the decal looks a tad crooked. I hope its just the angle of the car and of the shot.

Just convince yourself and others that it is an optical illusion if they look tilted. I boxed my old ones in tape before removal and I am sure that the replacement sticker is on the exact same plane as the previous one. Mine will still look tilted at times too.

The original stickers look cheap to me with that background stuff and not being die-cut.

Check if your car is tilted. Measure from the frame rail to the ground (make sure its level). When i installed coils i leveled my car but now the fenders look tilted.

I think almost any color would look good on white.
