Vent stripes??

Guys, I have the Black vent stripes on my car right now, but I see more and more Camaros that have forgone highlighting the vents. What are your thoughts? Are the vent stripe accents a little too much?

Fades look better IMHO. I have yet to do it though.

I like the vents black / dark, however, I'm not sure I would put white (or light) on a dark car.

I put the black vent stripes on a matter of fact that is the only change or mod I have done so far....I think it was just enough to make the body from a side view really stand out....plan on doing exhaust and a tune, but really enjoying what is there for now....

I think they are too much, the cleaner this car is the better it looks IMHO, although I have seen some cars with stripes that I though looked good, I would like to see more pictures of people have done with the vents.
