I want to get a custom plate for the front...since CA makes us put a plate on there, I'm going to have to put something good. I want the Euro plate...you guys know, the long thin one.

Any help?

Yeah, Europe. That's the only place to get them. Since we live in the US, you will have to use the appropriate state plate.

I saw one in person on an Audi and it looked bad ass. Do you guys think it would be gay to put euro plates on a U.S. IS300? I just liked the way it looked cause it was different......

I don't think it would be gay...but then again, I'm the one looking for one. I had one on my VR6 a few years back, and loved the look. It's just a cool change IMO. Anyways, I found a company that makes them custom w/ 11 letters...so I'll let you guys know what I get.

Any suggestions? I can say a lot w/ 11 letters.

Not to bash on the idea, but...
How can it be authentic if it is Euro Plate with a US plate number, customized? :-?
Authentic fake, it may be. :roll:

They are imported euro blank plates. When they get to the U.S. you can specify which letters/numbers you want. So they are embossed and painted here in the U.S.

I found them for $35 then $20 for the frame...so that's $55. I don't know what the diff is between ours...but whateva.

Legality? Not sure. Never got hassled for it when I had it on my VW...then again, I was living in Dallas at the time. We'll see I guess.

I'm sure the guys who got fix-it tickets would love to sell you theirs, any license plate that is not issued by DMV including euro style is illegal in california

Effective 1/6/11
VC 5200 $178 Proper display of license plates.
Note: The fine may be reduced with valid proof of correction.


I got a cool Black with Red letter euro style plate with my real lic # on it. Probably have to switch it when i get a ticket. :( It will be worth it IMO, been there with old ride, plus im almost always in a structure of sorts.

that makes sense, a japanese car with europlates ....
LOL, no kidding. I had one on my BMW, but now it just decorates my garage as it wouldn't look right on the car.

On a side note, search "Japanese License Plates" or even "2JZ plate(!)" on eBay and I think you'll like what you see, not to mention the size of those plates should fit a US-sized frame. I'm thinking of getting one of those myself. Got to keep it authentic. ;)
