Giving a more modern feel to a Look KG496

(closed)
Hello everybody,
I was thinking about putting some stickers on my newly acquiried Look KG 496 in order to give it a more modern flare to it. (BTW, the seat hasn't been adjusted on the picture, no need to flame me).
The bike is currently with some stickers that I am not digging.

I posted my bike in the gallery and someone told me not to do it. What is everybody thinking about this slight transformation ? (Also, my team colors are yellow, blue and red, making the bike match the color of my team jersey)

YAY or NAY ?

Not sure they'll look like that with real stickers, but the photoshopping looks a little MEH.
I think it's a little too much, but it is your bike

The bike already looks very modern. That being said, I like the decals.

Photoshopped looked bad, but in real life it's better. Definitely worth it.

Personally I'm a minimalist and would prefer next to no decals- but, those stickers do look good!

The stickers weight only a few grams. the paint is a different story .... I heard the paint is quite heavy on these bikes.

On a different note, price of the sticker and price of the paint is not the same either. I paid 5 euros for the stickers. Paint would have set me back another 200 euros minimum.
