No tickets...that's a good start

Driving back from Santa Barbara kept changing lanes to pass people, tap the gas and bam! I was at 100 within 2 seconds. But no tickets so its all good.

So nice finally getting my car back. European delivery is an amazing experience and I plan on doing it again and again. However, getting that little teaser then waiting 7 weeks is really hard.

The 328 is a great little car but damn the 335 is incredible.

Never had a speeding ticket. This car may cause the first.

Congrats!

Where are the pics of the wife in a bikini sprawled out on the hood? That's usually expected with one of these posts.

Well it certainly is good you went with a subtle look so as to not draw attention to yourself.

It's worth any ticket he gets. Nobody buys a flashy ride like that is worried about tickets or gasoline prices

Great, great photo.

Put that photo in your signature instead of the current shot, much better.

Oh yes. I know. Coming soon.

Thanks everyone. I knew the moment I did the stripe that I would have to be very aware of my speed. So far so good.

Obviously, he is worry, otherwise he wouldnt have made this post. Are you trying to tell me that people who mod their cars are not worry about losing their license?

I had mine white with sport stripes on the side but those stripes are amazing. I never thought black mags went very well with white but yours are just awesome. Your car screams I need speed!

I can tell you without doubt that it is not from the CA DMV! Most likely it is a custom plate from someplace like www.europeanplates.com. They offer a California European License Plate, kind of like this:


(click photo for link)

We did Euro Delivery with our 335is and we kept the Euro Plate on the front after redelivery. Neither one is legal in CA. His is probably modeled after his legal CA rear plate. We just modeled our CA plate after our Euro plate, complete with the red sticker:

Yep exactly. I didn't like the blue eu style plate because it doesn't really sell the california thing and I didn't want blue on the car but hey it is pretty clear that I am saying the plate is for california and this is the number. Which in reality is all a cop needs. And yes it is illegal but it fits the front of the car perfectly and you have to be a total dick cop to give me a ticket for it.
