They didnt over charge me i got my car for 19,850. The stripe is a sticker and it looks easy enough to take off just wanna make sure that it wont rip the paint when i pull it off.

I happen to think pinstripes look like ABSOLUTE CRAP on the Neon. Or any car with a "Built-in-creased-into-the-body-pinstripe-type-thing." Pinstripes are good on cars that have no character lines like a Cavalier or something, but on a Neon, Civic, BMW, or anything else with that "Crease down the side" thing going on, NO.

That said. Use a heat gun (Set really low) and a sharp, plastic putty knife to take that thing off. And be careful.

If you're gonna take it off, then the sooner the better. You don't want any "ghost" images of wher the pinstripes were due to longer sun exposure.
