What color pinstripe on CR-V?

The color of the car is Glacier blue and the factory recommended a navy blue pinstripe which is what I got put on it. I wanted silver but the salesman said you wouldn't see it. He said if I want I can come back and get whatever color I want. Also does the pinstripe look like it's in the right spot. I saw one car that had a pinstripe above the door handels. Or should I not even put a pinstripe on it? I just put it on because it's so called "free". lol



Not the greatest picture to show it.



bigger top pinstripe just to see what it looked like



smaller pinstripe

Well, here's what I think.

1) I think the silver pinstriping wont show very much, and so I think the navy blue is nicer.
2) If you like the pinstriping, definitely go for it; I personally don't care for pinstriping on my car, but it looks fine on others.
3) In that first pic, the pinstriping looks fine on the front left panel of the car, but does seem strange when it goes under the handle. Maybe it's because I read it before I saw it? However, in the second picture, I think the pinstriping looks really nice!

Good luck, nice car, good brand!

Yepp I like the Navy blue too. Silver wouldn't show up so well. The stripe looks in the right location in the first pic. Just along the "beltline". My car is navy blue with a silver pinstripe in just about the same location.

I say no pin stripe. But go for whatever makes you happy.

In those last two pics, why does the pin stripe look crooked?

^co-sign...
I prefer the clean clear look. Though some cars pull off the stripe MUCH better than others, overall i object.
