    Welcome, every day you drive it, you'll love it more. When you don't drive it, it feels like something is missing out of the day. Of course I don't have the GT, just it's little brother. Still a great car.

    Nice. You Albertans always make me jealous with the no front license plate.

    Congrats on your purchase! Just bought my 20th Anniversary a couple days ago. Still waiting on it though. The white with red interior was my second choice also :p

    No plate on front in UT is not a "first offense", i.e. cops won't pull you over and cite you for no front plate; but no front plate can be cited if they get you for a first offense like speeding. No danger here, unless you really piss a cop off. Welcome, @Fotomkr. :thumbup:

    Its funny, where I live we get so many tourists from neighbouring Alberta, and the RCMP don't give them any grief while in BC, but BC plates with no front license and look out.

    How good do they look with no front number plate. Much cleaner look. Wish we could get away with that here in Australia. But the speed cameras have to take a photo of something. :unsure:

    I still wish I had the red interior, they didn't have one on the lots and I didn't want to wait for a new shipment/build (I should have, in retrospect). I suggest getting a good wax or ceramic coating on it pronto, before winter arrives. Mine was covered in orange brake dust all winter, I'm confident a ceramic coating should help (this winter will either prove or disprove that theory since mine is coated now).

    For me it’s almost down the street Scottsdale Arizona, USA. At Fast Lane Tints, honest people.

    Hey Revvmedia, my hats off to you. Honestly I don’t think I have the patience for it. I would never be happy with the outcome. Taking it to a shop assures me of the quality. I call it “Buying Bitc___ Rights”.

    It is not an easy process by any stretch if done correctly. It normally takes me a couple days over a weekend to complete it because of all the prep work involved. Once maintained, if you require subsequent polishing, the application is not too difficult, you just need a very spotless surface.
