So I am walking through the vendor area, thoroughly disgusted that no one had any rims with a 6 lug pattern. I walk past the IDOT booth, and they have the computers up with the personalized plates screen. So I jokingly ask the guy to check the tag " STS V 1 ", fully expecting someone to have already grabbed it. 5 seconds later the guy says, "Congradulations. It's available. Now all you need is the car." To which I replied "It's in the lot outside. Sign me up for that plate." 5 minutes later, it's all done except for the waiting. Should be here in about 2 weeks. The best part is, I didn't even have to waste 2 hours at the IL DMV filling out paperwork. Just goes to show you - IT NEVER HURTS TO ASK!!

Very cool. I was thinking of doing a personalized plate too. I want something catchy like BLOWN V or something.

BobNice:thumbsup: how did u like the show? personally I thought american companies represented themselves well. The new Jaguars are very impressive as well. Did u think it was goofy how jaguar was so far away from all the other luxery cars though? :rolleyes:

Mine is simpler to read, but that`s because we can`t get the plates as in the US.

I was looking under the car and see that I can see your exhaust from the puddle of water! You some big time Photographer or what?:thumbsup:

Harry, I really like your Euro spec STS-V! One question though. Since you are in Germany, how do your tail lights light up? I assume that your turning signals are amber? Most German cars I know have separate brake lights and running lights. How is this handled on the STS? I'd love to see a picture of the tail lights lit up if you would care to share.

Thanks,
