    Its a bit "inside". Was wondering how many average Joe's would get it. I know certain car people will. Just wondering if you saw it you would know what it was.

    Its on the back of a BMW 3 series. Plate will read:

    SHN3LL

    Do you get it or would you be behind me thinking "wow that guy is super hot but his plate makes no sense to me but damn he is hot"

    Don't get it but if someone is looking at your hotitude they're probly not looking at the license plate either.

    Problem is that in such a big state, so many configurations of things are gone

    German car with German word on license for "quick." People might either confuse you for German or Nazi lover......icon_wink.gif

    Personalized license plates always scream "desperately need attention". I know that's probably not the case with you, but there's a certain douche-factor involved so I'd save my money.

    Most custom plates are an inside thing. Mine is the name of a character from a fantasy novel icon_smile.gif

    I want to get an 80s car and just have the license plate say L33T

    I think there is a strong danger of being douchey when it comes to custom plates. If you're bragging about yourself or your car especially. That's why I just name my cars. Then that's what goes on the plate ;)

    I wanted custom plates until a local cop told me the ending numbers of my plate UFX are among those used by state police vehicles. So I keep them hoping any local cops assume I might just be an unmarked state trooper.

    I think funny phrases make the best vanity plates.

    Hmm RJ does not seem to like custom plates. I did not know that.

    I figured it would tough to figure out what it meant. Its one thing to be inside and its another to be inside and have to use the number 3 as an E. Back to the drawing board I guess.

    while we're in intervention mode:

    i'm not crazy about a gay dude driving a 3 series either.
    but I'm in LA, so maybe it's not the cliche in dallas that it is here.

    i'm more attracted to dudes who short circuit stereotypes, not reinforce them.
    full disclosure: i drive a pickup, and a bike , both have DMV issued random plates.

    Im in LA too. And its not cliche here. Take a walk down SM BLVD and you will see most gay guys drive econoboxes like a civic or Jetta. Also trucks, jeeps and crossover SUVs are huge. Of all my gay friends, I am the only one with a BMW. I think that stereotype only exists in the minds of gay guys. To be honest, I find a truck ala F150/Silverado to be more cliche gay than a BMW.

    and I drive a BMW because I am a car enthusiast and its one of best handling and best engineered coupes at in the price range. It has been a Car and Drive best 10 winner for 20 consecutive years and is considered the bench mark sports sedan/coupe in its class.

    Im glad the cliche gays have moved on. Leave the car to people who appreciate what it is...not the badge on it.

    Cliche and attention seeking is in the eye of the beholder. The same can be said about what you drive...regardless of your intentions.
