Decals or not for Tommi Makinen?

Hi all
I have recently imported a blue Tommi Makinen Evo V1 from US, its in excellent condition, all original (apart from gear knob) and intend to sell shortly. I also have a set of decals that could add, but notice originally was only the red ones that had them. Im sure the car will look great with the decals but do you think it will sell better or worse at auction with them added?

thanks

Andy

It was imported by a collector, unfortunately he fell foul of the law and his collection of japanese cars were seized by the DEA then auctioned

A drug dealer with an EVO VI, hoodafunk. BTW you obviously only bought this car to sell on for a profit, and doing so is against the rules of this forum.

The decals don't really stand out in the blue (i prefer the decals, but its not a make or break decision)I don't think it will hurt value per se.

Was this the collection of cars from the ponzi scheme?

thanks for pictures BaileyK, not a ponzi scheme, just a very naughty boy! There were about a dozen Japenese imports, couple of nice skylines I put bids on also. Sorry Aidy, I do intend to sell but didnt realise was breaking forum rules. If any consolation I've had a fair few miles/hours of fun in it before the weather turns. One of the best cars I've driven and would definitely keep it if I had the storage.
