DAMN!! that one's good! I like how you can work in the cars name into a cool word. I've seen a couple M3s with this kind of plate. "MRAGED" = enraged and "M V US" = envy us


DAMN!!!

can i buy that from you?

CMPNS8N as in "my Elise is compensation for all the boring cars I've driven in my life so far". Well, that and all the "pinky salutes" I'm sure to get while driving my little sports-car.

can I have your Elise?

personalized liscence plates.

I've arlready got one for the Elise to be delivered sometime between this december and next december. It's temporarliy on my Miata LS because you can't get a plate in California without a car. F1 DNA
I like the connection with Formula one that I watch faithfully. Unfortunatly They are not in F1 any more, but they are involved in historic racing. I plan to have a sticker made up for the back window with years for drivers and constructors championships. I'm a die hard lous fan.

By the time the cars get here, we'll be able to get antique plates.

I'm sure that most people will think that you are compensating for something else.

I vacillated between ordering LOTUS or ELISE. Ordered Lotus, since the latter would look like the car was owned by a female named Elise.

I was amazed that Lotus was available--figured some Espirit owner would have it.

I read an article that this tag that was rejected: 6ULDV8.

I just took TYPE 111 for California. I spent some hours the past few days at the DMV site checking out plate ideasI figured the time is now before most people start picking up cars.
There are several good ones left in Calif. All these are available
as of today. The "LOVE" refers to the heart symbol.
the "HAND" refers to the hand symbol

1LOTUS1
ON APEX
TURN "LOVE" R
"LOVE" TO TURN
"LOVE' TURNIN
'LOVE' MY 111
GR8 'HAND"DLN
05 LOTUS
HOT 111
'LOVE' N LOTUS
APEX 'LOVE' R
4 TWISTY

and I was shocked to see this one available

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.

I checked online and the plate I want is available, but unfortunately here in WA you can't reserve one of buy it before you have the car, or at least that's how I read the rules. Now I'm worried that someone will get it before me.

But not as worried as I am that I might explode from impatience before my car shows up.

The only problem with the LOVE and HAND symbols is that they are only available with the kiddie plate, which I'm not fond of. And you can only get one LOVE or one HAND symbol, can't combine or have more than one on the same plate.

Just replaced mine. I had ON VIDEO. Decided it was probably being misunderstood in a way that would come across as pretentious.

Thought about this one... COMP CAR but decided it may not go over well with everyone.

Decided to get this one. It is a play on words because there will be 2-3 cameras in the car at all times.
