Although I'm not a fan of euro plates (in the US), I have to say I love the way it fills out the space the way it was intended to. The US plates really look out of place there. It does look sharp!

NH requires the front, unfortunately.

So does Maine, but several friends have Euro plates and the fuzz doesn't seem to hassle them... we'll see. ;)


And, no, the washer isn't twisted.

Looks VERY good. Dresses up the silver nicely.

I got the black Saab 'turbo' plate to fill in my front bumper, since NC doesn't require a front plate.

I also like that yours doesn't say anything. There someone in an Audi around here , TT I think, whose says something (can't remember, it pi$$ed me off when I saw it, because I don't like Euro plates on the front that say something, it was something inane like 'SLVRCOOL' or some such).

While I'm on the subject of Audi, I just have to say something. Has anyone else noticed that a lot of Audi folks border on 'rice' or 'fast n furious' ? For some reason, the Audi crowd around here are all that way (maybe it's an age thing as opposed to manufacturer).

Nope, can't say they are ricey around here. It's funny actually, because all of the VW/Audi guys go to a shop called Rennen in Portland, ME and they have REALLY set the standard in terms of what a VW or Audi shoud look like... so we don't get the rice. Instead, they all pretty much look the same (kamei grille, some form of meshed BBS wheels, H&R cup kits, unpainted factory european lips, Oettinger or Reiger kits, Techtonics exhaust... seriously, they're all identicle!).

On the topic of the license plate, I'm glad I went with numbers and not recognizable text. It looks better.

I bet you can't guess where the numbers came from though. ;)
