If they do not get enough requests they will refund your $50 but that won't happen until January 2015 though you can request a refund sooner by sending in paperwork.

Thinking about it for my new X1. Wonder which plate would like the best on Alpine White. Would be something a little different and out of the ordinary. But not sure I want to have to go through the hassle of changing my plates after at least of year of working with the original ones.
not sure how these would look on a modern car......
