Ready to buy as well...Design looks awsome, and looks like it doesnt block anything on the plate!

I vote for 2 hole, i dont even think my STi has 4 holes in the rear

Yeah 2 holes FTW... the STi does not have 4 holes, plus making 4 holes would ruin my design:D Anyway, i appreciate you making these a reality Kevin, I think these will give IWSTI a chance to grow even more. I am glad i could contribute!:tup::tup:

I am guessing the STi logo will be more towards the real color, no?

Re: IWSTI ABS License Plate Frames? (Pics) ***Update 11/24/07***

I have received responses to my requests for imformation.

The type of license plate that everybody likes is custom molded to make the IWSTI letters stand out. The ones that are not molded cost substantially less, but are not as cool and I doubt as many people would be interested in them. Also, we can offer a two hole and four hole design (However, if I recall, the STI only sports two mounting points in the front and rear).

I am waiting for final pricing to have these shipped to me, but currently the prospective pricing for the plates is:

$12.99

JTuned sells the same custom molded plate for $10.00 plus shipping and tax. Those guys sell a lot more than we have even members on the site.

Looks good but that would block registration "TABS"--ie (DEC.--'07).....at least in MN anyways.....don't you guys have tabs? If there blocked they get pissy.....

Unfortunately, you cant satisfy everybody. If Kevin can market this to those in the 45 states with top stickers, and the people in the other 5 states who choose to "push their luck", he's better off than the majority of the product ventures out there.

Would it be possible to make the STI portion look more like the official STi?

Damn SOA :(

For those that fear their local police, they can install them on the front of their vehicles.

Its not really satisfying me as it is the law in MN, Its no BIGGEY just an observation, which could be designed out with cutouts on the right and left but thats neither here nor there, MN might get Legally iffy frames but we still get SNOW!!!!!!

That second one would work in MN, but looks like the legally iffy one is being produced although it looks the BEST, the partially cut-out text is nice. I'd probably still buy it, they wouldn't be able to chase an STI in Snow anyhow:lol:.....now if I only had my STI:( patience is a virtue i'm told, i'll get the frame when I get the car......

:eek: WOW sorry to thread jack here but I keep thinking of stuff......

...funny we were installing an Injen CAI and Motodyne plenum spacer on my friends 350z, and it had come with an INJEN license frame....we mounted it for fun, but being from the great northern MN it blocked the tabs....make sense I guess since most tuner companies are East or West.

I just want to say Great Job and hey at least we can all get the IWSTI window decals right?

....course it wouldn't be good to get a 3 foot accross "IWSTI" in the rear window:lol:
