    Rear Bumper Letter Inserts, Opinions Please?

    Hi, I'm looking at these...

    GTO Rear Bumper Insert Decals

    What do you think? I don't want a riced out GTO or even go one baby step in that direction.

    If you like, what color? Red is obvious, but it comes reflective red and other colors too (white, black) that may look good, too.

    Thanks!

    Wow! $65... they're nice, but that's a little steep. I could buy 8 sets of the plastic ones.

    I saw the valve stems that were pretty nice. Here they are on Ebay for 1/2

    The inserts are nice and its not even remotely "rice" to put them on your car. Its not like your putting it on a civic or something.

    The link shows vinyl letters. I couldn't find domed. By that, I guess you mean plastic ones that domed along the top, right? I've seen those, but can't find where to buy them.

    I found them... here

    But, I actually found them on Ebay first. Same company, lower price and hottie pictured at no extra charge.

    Thanks!

    I think I will get those.

    That GTO deserve's better.......The SSinsert's are laser cut from polished SS and will last the life of the car.
    The one's you're looking at are what $39.00 ????????? and last maybe 5 - 10 years....

    We're not talking about vinyl inserts that sell on ebay for $8, that somebody made in their garage.

    Is that what you did, bought some expletive deleted vinyl inserts and now you're expletive deleted?

    Let's see what you have on your ride expletive deleted, that is if you have any at all or expletive deleted.
    Ain't no expletive deleted buddy......

    The s/s is nice, like I said. I think I prefer the red domed ones, though. And if they last 5-10 years, the car will be long gone when they crap out.

    Appreciate you showing them to me though.

    Not cool.

    It's only stuff to put in those letters below the back bumper.

    Jeez. You guys need to throttle back on the caffeine.

    Now go shake hands and be friends.

    Or at least I want to see...

    In the meantime, here's me...

    (I'm way too bored tonight, having too much fun with the icons... damn-it, had to cut some... 15 is the limit).

    Seriously, what difference does it make? $8 and replace them once a year, $60 and it will be the last thing to rust off the car or $40 for domed dark red polymer with a hottie in the ad?

    Appreciate everyone's input and ideas. I'll buy what I like. It's not worth you guys getting into a flame war about.

    Me too, I think I will get those. I just requested a couple color samples from the company, dark red and a metallic red. We'll see which matches the car best.

    Thanks!
