    I am going to renew my license plate soon and want to get a neat expression or name on it. Throwing around a few but the boss (wife) doesn't like the. How about some suggestions. Mini's on road don't have personalized ones. HELP!:confused5:

    MOTOR ON is my suggestion if you can do 7 characters with a 1/2 space between words. We can do that sort'a thing Out West!

    Thats kinda like telling someone else who is pregnant your baby name ideas.
    If i tell you the one I want you might take the idea and then I wont be able to use it.
    You should get in your MINI go for a long drive and let MINI tell you what she or he wants on it's plate. I nice long peacful drive might help to free up your mind and the perfect plate idea will pop right in your head...

    Interesting. I tried to get ZIGZAGS in Cali but was told it fostered drug use and was denied.

    Yeah, I know. Just think it's funny that it's legal to sell the papers, but not to have it on a plate, especially when I added a note explaining it was because the MINI had a short wheelbase and was good at zig-zagging...

    Really frustrating thing is when I see the pick up truck down the street with a plate that sez "KILL M ALL"...

    Thank goodness there are state employees out there protecting our morality.
