I will be honest I never understood the allure of a plate that just sets someone up for failure. What happens if you get beaten by an AMG, and don't tell me there aren't fast ones out there, because there are. Are they as fast as an Alpha 12 car, no, but that isn't the point. I think plates that bait or declare superiority in some sort of absolute way are just begging to have the person humiliated.

I ran into an M3 back when I had an '03 E55 and he had the same plate. He was parking his car and I drove by and just caught a glance of the plate. I immediately backed up, rolled down the window, and gave the guy a puzzled look. He got all nervous and said "Uh, it's not AMGs like yours, it's for C55s".

I have owned many a fast car and never would I consider putting any kind of plate like that on any car. Anything that premptively tries to declare victory is just asking to be proven wrong and humiliated in the process.

Just my two cents.

yup never really understood targeting specific cars. especially in this case - AMGs? kind of random. maybe if you had an ///M, but still.....

I kept my plate generic but it did seem to stir up a guy the other night in his Ferrari with 30 day tags.

It's just good-natured fun; it's not like he's saying he can beat any AMG car on the street. My GT-R is most likely going to have a plate that makes fun of my Lamborghini because I think it will be funny; there are of course Lamborghini's I will not be faster than; well a few at least lol.

its good-natured fun till you run into a meathead or douchebag in an AMG that will most likely cut you off or key your car (because he's an offended coward) if he sees it parked

I like it, but I think I'm partially biased by the VT plate. I also have a VT plate, but with the typical Godzilla reference....GOJ1RA. It has a dual meaning for me as I'm a software engineer and use JIRA which is short of Gojira

Someone should get "1%" on their plate...

This is the only vanity plate I've ever had:





(matching #'s '69 HEMI Charger 4spd)

...but, I'm considering doing something like GTR FTW or 4WD BST on my '12-13 GT-R (whenever I get one, that is).

Thanks - they don't build them like that anymore... Took three years straight to restore and has been judged to 97.5pts... It's just a bit different from a GTR ;)
