My Ford factory stripes are holding up just fine. No issues with cleaning/waxing/etc. I received one stone nick, and I filled it with touch-up paint... worked fairly well.
The stripes are replaceable for much less cost than getting all of the stripes repainted.
I have a friend who has a 3 year old Shelby who has neglected the exterior, but the stripes are doing just fine:

I would NOT worry about the vinyl stripes....!!!!

The vinyl quality itself is fine. But there is one big I think i can't stand with (most) Mustang stripes from the factory: They are not going to the edges but leave 1/2 inch of visible bodycolor. Especially with the Mach 1 bound to bright colors (besides Black) it just looks cheap or unfished to me.

That is one reason why I asked my dealer to remove the stripes before the car is handed over to me. Unfortunately you cannot have a "delete stripes" option from the factory....
