    S-Line rear Bumper Decal - Stick or not to Stick?

    New S-line Saloon rear valance being sprayed up at present and was wondering on members opinions on sticking the Black Decal strip in the bumper recess?
    On non-black cars this looks distinctive with the twin pipes either side.

    Would there be any styling advantage sticking it to mine which is being sprayed Ebony Black?
    Perhaps it gives a "non-reflective" distinction in this area.

    The stick-on decal came with the newly ordered lower bumper valance - I actually had not ordered it intentionally.
    Your opinions please.....

    Your car being black its probably going to be hardly noticable BUT it will still give it that 'break' so id stick it on.

    Test fit it first and see what you prefer!

    Thinking the same - need to break the all over shine from the paint.
    Test fitting is a good idea.

    I agree with you Woorlord, I think the satin/matt finish of the sticker will contrast nicely with the gloss of the bumper.
