Last Final Touch On the M850i

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Have been battling the AZ DMV to get my plate transferred to the new M850i. History being I've owned the plate for roughly 20 years now but they tried to take it back 10 years ago given the XTC aka ecstasy became controversial due to the potential drug connotation. I had to dig up my old correspondence with them that ended in my plate being grandfathered vs they would not allow a new one. Why they did not have those records is mind boggling but thankfully I had it all saved.

The car is totally dirty from the AZ dust at this point but it's going back to the detailer for the first maintenance wash on Monday given the Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra ceramic coating applied last week needed a 10 day curing process. So I'll post full updated pics once I get it back.

LOL and should have used that in my original argument with the DMV. Rather I centered around V8 being an engine type or vegetable juice and the plate meaning being enamored by either and no way with the letter combos could be considered a drug connotation.

Next time you are an XTC music fanatic who has all of the original 12 albums in vinyl (even I was was surprised they made 12 albums)!

Yes indeed Wing Co, Making Plans for Nigel was another XTC hit! You too may apply for a XTC plate! Some more of the lyrics (band from the North of England.....)

We're only making plans for Nigel
He has his future in a British steel
We're only making plans for Nigel
Nigel's whole future is as good as sealed
