I have an AMEX Platinum with a chip now, but it's chip/signature. Will the 5/1 ones be chip/pin? That'd be nice.

Apparently my car has STILL not been released to trucking. I have no idea what's going on and the 10 day extension on my 335i lease expires on Monday so we're kind of down to the wire here.

I have this, placed over the rear Zoll plate. No front plate whatsoever. I got a parking ticket for no front plate at one of the city-owned LAX airport lots, but I've never been pulled over for it.
