Race Livery on your road car - good or bad?

Just a thought

What would you say are the good points/bad points to having a livery on your road car?

Good thing or bad thing?

I don't mind a couple of owners club stickers but I'm not a fan of covering cars in them.

I'm seeing a lot of chav cars these days with their back windows completely covered, I'm sure it must be illegal to block off your rear window

Race livery is just that, it's for actual competition race cars.

Dave in all honesty, it doesn't matter what we think..... what matters is what you want and how you want to be different from everyone else... as long as you are happy have any of the livery you want, wrap it, sticker bomb it, do what you want to do and don't be worried about what people may say about it!

Just please don't to a tiger or leopard wrap! FFS ! !
