Love it, but in South Florida most will interpret it as "Dice El", which is Spanish for "He Says"!

we have the European plates here in Puerto Rico which are legal only if sold by our DMV. BUT, there is a catch they say its a personal plate BUT it is not!! they make u pay $100 and THEY give whatever plate is available(so much for personal plates, i asked) on the other hand you can request at the same price your personal plate which would be the square one and have it the way you want it as I have and am waiting for. as for what I chose to be on the plate is DIESEL(that way they stop asking me what the "D" stands for!!)

Texas is kind of strange like that on certain plates. For example you can get "antique plates" or "classic plates" on older cars but I don't think you can get them as vanity or at least not on the "antique" ones. I actually pay a rather large premium for vanity plates on both my BMW and older Mustang. I have been thinking about doing the truck here lately and just moving plates whenever I get replacement vehicles. I don't think we have wide "euro" style plates like shown above, if we did then I'd probably get some on the BMW and Mercedes.

@Snipe people just have to request them , here in the Island a lot BMWs have the ilegal ones, I had one and the Policeman told just like this Sir, either you remove the plate or you get $100 fine, guess what I did then and still is, I removed it!!!

Awesome. I would love a euro style plate on the back to match the ED one I have on the front.

That's awesome. I'd rock it.

If I didn't have a front plate, I'd have a euro plate

Is that legal to do in your state?
