    Just Picked Up A Thunder Gray '13

    Just signed the papers to a '13, 3.6, RWD, Performance, Thunder Gray, Jet black on black ATS. Loving the car so far.

    Here's a few pictures I took before I drove it off the lot.

    Congratulations! What a beauty! By the way, out of curiosity, how come you got permanent license plate? It normally take sometime till DMV issues your plate.

    I guess in Missouri your current plates are good for 30 days, and you just have to keep the purchase paperwork in your car to show if you get pulled over and the plates don't match. The dealer didn't ask about a temp tag and just took my old plates off and put these on, and that was what I under the assumption of how it's handled.

    And I believe some states let the dealer have a stock of plates and issue them to a new car at time of sale.

    In Ohio, if you trade in another vehicle, they just transfer the plates from your old vehicle to the new one. The state wants to stop this as people could technically keep the same plate for 10-15 years. This is why you'll see 10 different designs. Our state seems to come out with new plate designs at least every year.

    When I went to pay sales tax for the car, they asked if I wanted new plates, or just to transfer the old plates to the ATS. I asked the differences, and transferring plates was much cheaper, and they're still good until the tags run out. I was thankful because the car I traded in, I just had to get updated 2-year tags for it a few months ago.
