    Since there's 38" of new snow on the ground here in the northeast, and the past weeks slight melting has only teased the arrival of spring some time in September, I wondered out to the garage to fickle over my pride and joy. I noticed a seam in the tape stripe on the front bumper in the area where the front plate would go (see pic).

    Wondering if anyone else has this. If its common, I will have my buddy cut me some seamless replacements cuz OCD needs to be nourished. If its not so common, I will see my local dealer and inquire why there is a seam within 5 inches of an end cut.

    Thanks in advance.

    Never though I would be one of those didn't search first guys. Thought it was too obscure. Thanks.

    The overlap will live a short life. Off to the sign shop.

    Noticed this just a few days ago while installing my chin spoiler, thought it was weird. Didn't have front spoiler installed because of clearance issues in old driveway.

    stripes

    When I have a question my first thought is not about searching it is about getting my question out there lol so I have had to have the search bar pionted out a time or two lol my stripes are the same they are 2 piece on all of them-- no one ever sees anything other than the back of the car anyway lol

    I've got it on my '10 and right now it's okay cause it's covered by a wide european licence plate, but I know it's gonna bug me when I come back stateside.
