My state does not require a front plate, but I am leaving the German plate on as a novelty. My Pennsylvania plate is on the rear already.

That's pretty sweet. Looks like I'll have to stop the dealer and learn more about ED. Don't want to bog the thread down. Thanks for answering my questions

Love the pic with your pooch.

MR is such a fascinating color; looks non-metallic until you get RIGHT UP on it then POW... metal flake.

Did you have the "gills" in the lower fascia painted?

Does the state of Pennsylvania require you to have ALL of those stickers on the windshield or are some of those parking permits, etc.?

(nice car, congrats by the way...that wait for the car after ED is tough!)

The stickers are toll stickers from driving around Europe. Most countries I visited required them to use their interstates. The bottom two on the driver's side are my Pennsylvania inspection and emissions stickers.

Thanks! MR is amazing. I ordered the OEM "whiskers" in black gloss from **********s.com. I don't understand why the sports line does not come with them black from the factory.
