Does anyone have any vanity license plate suggestions?
Doesn't have to be car/bmw/auto related...just something creative.

Please?

OP in terms of custom plates, the recommendation I have is that you get something that means something to you!

btw not sure how much plates cost where others are, but fully custom plates in Oz are charged at an annual rate of $400 a year!

The reason why MDs get special plates is so that they can park in the designated physician parking spots by the Hospital. I am sure you would get the plate instead of parking in visitor parking. So by your logic, you too would be a "toolbag"

My personal favorites for vanity plates:

IMATOOL

KEYME

SMLPNIS

INSECUR

FNTOOL

You can probably guess that I am not a fan of attracting unnecessary attention to an M3. Too many haters out there that may not share in the wit expressed in a rectangular text screwed to the car. Maybe the ladies dig vanity plates?

Not really sure we need yet another thread on this topic.

Yeah, they still have those blue/red background plates as the standard issue. They lightened up the blue because the digits would blend into the blue background making them difficult to make out from a distance.

I still have the "shuttle" plates on my daily, but they're gonna make me replace next year.

I think the black plate looks awesome on a dark car. Too bad they charge so much ($29.50/yr) or more people would have them.

People gonna hate no matter what.

I don't have a vanity plate per se... I have an OIF veteran plate in the hopes that the next cop that pulls me over supports the troops and will rape my ass a little less

Then you'll be fine. I always ask a few probing questions so that I know it's not some douche pretending to be ex military. Those people get two tickets.

Yea I feel ya.

What was strange is that they asked for a copy of my orders taking me to Iraq, and when I said I didn't have them on me, they said, "OK, no big deal..." And they gave me the plates anyway.

I guess just anyone could walk in and get some OIF plates at that DMV...

Do you carry your card with you? DMV personnel are usually just happy you pay money...

I always have my military ID card on me. I don't usually carry a set of orders that took me to Iraq since most of that stuff is all electronic, although lately here in NC I've been carrying a copy of my orders that brought me to Fort Bragg.

OP, sorry for the threadjack! It's just so much more interesting than not being able to think up your own vanity plate.

I had "TISQRD" on my wife's 2002 Tii, but no one understood. I gave up.

I have AMG L0L on my E92, gets laughs and thumbs up from people who know what it means. I usually have to explain it though since the common person doesn't know what the hell ///M and AMG are.

On the E46 I'm either going with CHICANE or APEX IT both are available just have to decide which one fits better.

Other ideas:
REDSHIFT
MGASM
MPG LOL
DSC OFF
M POWER
MPRESIV
CHKMAT3
M 4.0
GOT8400
MUNCHEN
AMG THIS
JIS4FUN
DAD469
