      Hey Kellen, where did you get that plate?? The dealer in Atlanta didn't have any when I bought my car, and said they haven't had them for a few years. And the dealer here in Tulsa didn't know what I was talking about! ?? (my dealer here sucks, it was just recently bought by another dealer - hopefully that will help)

      I just bought a '69 Bug that's white and I would like to put that plate on the front.

      Sorry for Mr. R32 taking your thread off topic.

      Back on topic though...
      when you had the DT coils, are those anything like the ST coils?? The ST's are on sale at fifteen52 and I was thinking about doing those instead of the KW's. Any experience with the ST coils? Or would you say save the extra $300-$400 and splurge for the KW's? I only want to buy them once, you know?

      Thanks man - and appreciate all your advice on the LED tails, they came in last night.

      Got the plate from my dealer when I bought the car, dont think they are available anymore.

      DTS and ST coils are one in the same. DTS isnt available stateside anymore, and ST is. ST is a subdivsion of KW. So, they are essentialy the same except for one is galvanized and one is stainless. So if you are going to be in more 'weatherd' climates then I would go with KW, if not ST's are great. Also, you get a little more if you bump up to V2/3's. But thats only if you need it.

      Hope that helps

      Thanks for the explanation, Kellen. That does indeed help. I may have to jump on these.
