Here in CA, state issued plates aren't transferable to other cars like vanity plates. So be sure you keep at least one plate when attempting the transfer at DMV.

I think I'm going to go to the DMV, and have them convert the plates to vanity/personal. Then once the plates are converted swap them over to my new Turbodiesel.

Bump, it really needs to go.

Will consider partial trade for the right DSLR, and or a 4 speed 240d trans + pedal set...

Sounds like a neat car. Any other work besides what you mentioned? Front end rebuilt? New motor mounts? Etc? What model year is the 300D engine?

New motor mounts, newer front KYB shocks, newer sachs rear shocks, OEM manual passenger side mirror, IQ478 fog lamp mod, 4 brake light mod, high mount 3rd brake light, blacked grille insert, high mileage badge, hidden second 12v in glove box. The om617 is a 1977.

Update all the euro lights have now been removed and in their place are US-spec lights, ordering new headlight doors tomorrow.
