So I’m posting this just because I found it funny and thought I’d share. I had a 2010 Jetta TDi that was going to be part of my down payment for my model 3, but it broke and I had to do the whole buy back thing a year earlier than I wanted. But I was all into following the fix etc since it was pretty interesting. So I got my plates for my model 3 today in the mail. No custom plate or anything. But it came as 8EGR###. I was staring at it for a while going why does EGR sound so fimilar, and then it dawned on me. EGR exhaust gas recirculation. Which is a way for gas / Diesel engines to reduce their NOx emissions. It has come full circle.
