the Shelby focus has a cool graphic, but graphics are for stupid Mexicans and their stupid civics.

I don't like them at all, not my style, and I'd be curious to know how the graphics would look after several years of weather and sun exposure.

Most vinyl has around a 3 to 5 year life span. Some a little more.

They probably clear over it I would imagine? I would hope they do so with the Raptors for sure. Thats an expensive option to check to only have it go to shit after a few years.

I don't know for sure, but I'd be surprised if they did..

Me personally, I'd never put one on my car if it made it look like some juvenile "boy racer" vehicle.

It would destroy the resale value. If you're gonna keep the car for a long, long time, then go for it.

If I were looking for a used Focus, I'd steer clear of one with loud or crazy graphics. My first assumption would be that the car was probably "rode hard and put away wet," so to speak.

That being said, if it looked good and enhanced the car, I'd consider it.

Just my humble opinion.

Chintzy,poorly done mods hurt resale value period but with the graphics once they do age and it's time to remove them the paint underneath will still be a shade of very new while the rest has faded around the graphics so unless you're replacing them with the same set of vehicle tattoos it'll look like crap.

If they want to have those fine, its not me. I'll take the Cobra decal wrapped around my GT500 from the Mustang customizer site at Ford.
