New 2012 GTI Autobahn - Black

I'm one month in with my GTI, and I'm still falling more deeply in love with it every day.

New to the forum and not sure if this is the right place to post them, but I thought I'd share the results of some shots I recently took.

Seriously, that might be the best-looking license plate design I've ever seen.

At least VA has a wide variety of pro-life and "I can't get over 9/11" plates to choose from. :P

Nice plate, but I would blur the actual numbers If I were you. You'd be surprise what people can do with a complete license plate number matched to your profile. You can't be too careful these days.

I thought about that, but then figured there's nothing more public and able to be seen everywhere as a license plate. What can one gather with just that and a location?

Yeah I'm in Texas as well! Those plates are awesome I've been thinking about changing them to these on my R but they are too expensive! $550 for 5 years! It's kind of a big hit if you pay it in advance. Awesome GTI btw looking good!

I'm not sure actually. When I agreed on the car and price, they were having to get it from another dealership. When it arrived, they weren't aware that the dealer had already done the tint, and I told them I didn't agree to pay for the tint, so I essentially got it for free.

Yeah I paid the $200 for 3 years.. The way I sold it to myself was the fact that the dealership paid for all the registrations fees since it was a new car (I'm fairly new to TX, so didn't know that was a thing. It's an awesome thing.)
