I bought from this exact vendor - I think they are fine although if have OCD, you will be unhappy as the font is slightly different. You can only tell if you put a picture side by side AND look closely at the font.

My sticker position is optimized for driving; it is not in the same position as in the movie as it blocks the vision for the mirror on my 87.

Yeah, apparently nobody can replicate the "a" font used in the movie in these stickers, which I find interesting. There has to be a font out there with the correct "a", so they could use that different font for just that single letter.

Got the decals yesterday. Nicely made, the vinyl was decently thick and not flimsy. Easy to apply, make sure to use soapy water to slide the decal around to final position, and I used a small squeegee (the kind you get to apply cell phone screen protectors) to remove the excess liquid and smooth out the bubbles. Similar to sleekgt, I chose not to use original spot for safety reasons to not block the mirrors. Instead I chose the rear windows right above the Esprit decal. It actually color matches really well with my Calypso Red exterior. Well worth the $11. Would definitely recommend this EBay seller.

Update on mine. So I noticed the window glass was smudged in the area around the decal from when I applied it, so I went to wipe it down. When the towel hit the edge of the decal, it peeled it right off the window. i.e. the decal did not "cling" to the window very well. And the graphic started to peel away from the backing when it came off, so now the edges won't re-sick to the window correctly. So basically, the decal is fine for one-time application, but then don't get anywhere near it afterwards. I'll see how much mine bothers me now, and might re-order. Would prefer to find someone who can produce this as a removable vinyl cling, as opposed to a decal. Wonder if I took the decal to a print shop, if they can recreate it as a cling? Group buy?

The lowercase "a" is different.

Just got my decals fast! Look great on my white 90SE. I do have light 35% tint, so decal blends in discreetly
