It doesn't matter, people don't look where they are going anyhow. The lady that hit me in 2006 said to the officer "I didn't see the car".... The officer looked at my bright yellow SX and then looked at her and said "your eyes must have been shut; I could have seen that car from several miles away..."who cares, it looks cool!
Seriously I don't think so, there are plenty of cars out there without side-markers.
but...if something bad happens, I'm not responsible. :lol:
