    Today is my birthday and my wife surprised me with a new vanity plate.

    It's gonna look a bit odd attached to my Mini Cooper S for the next couple years. I'll have to get one of those plate surrounds that says "MY NEXT CAR IS A", or "I'M WAITING FOR MY"... or something like that. :)

    I have "NOGASTNK" but not sure if I'm going to use it. I think I'm going to get the green plates for mine. HOV lane access is a bonus!

    I know what you mean. After placing my reservation, I realized that if I wanted a good choice in a vanity plate, I should act quickly. So, for the next couple of years (or so) my 2013 Subaru Legacy will wear some strange plates.

    so you can order the plates prior to taking ownership of the car in ontario? I have a ton of really really good vanity plates that I have verified are available in ontario, but was waiting to order.

    You can order the plates at any time. You don't have to assign them to a car when you order them, you just need a driver's license #. When you get the plates, you can put them on your car now, like I did, or wait.

    I have to admit, "electric vehicle" isn't the first thing that comes to my mind when reading those plates.
    More like, "ate too many beans".

    We have had a lot of fun with them! We get a lot of people pulling up behind us at stop lights, pointing and laughing.. Some even take pictures with their cellphones. My guess is that most do not get the connection. We have had to explain the plates multiple times when crossing the border to and from Canada.

    Would you or any members know how to lobby the Ontario gov. in order to have just a rear license plate in Ontario? Is there a petition or a letter that can be forwarded to ???? someone. Just trying to save the government 50% on license plate printing.... and trying to preserve the intended look of my future M3.

    being someone who has to have a front plate that obviously was not designed to have one (thanks Franz), I can guess this is not going to happen, but give it a shot. Maybe ON CA isn't as hung up on photo ticketing as they are here.

    The funny thing about front and rear plates is that they are the norm in North America. While some states require only a rear plate, these are mostly southeastern U.S. and none of the largest states and provinces. So, why won't Tesla incorporate an attractive front plate mounting place on their vehicles, so as to minimize defacing the car (and preserve aerodynamics as much as possible)?
