    Went to ATM yesterday and still not cashed. Given how @jpsgoneev just got his stickers yesterday but mailed them mid-December, sounds like I’m still in for a wait (mailed 1/1).

    I had to call the DMV Special Processing Unit yesterday for an issue---they are about 1 month behind--just getting to 12/30/18 mail (they are just slammed with Tesla applications, especially from folks like me who held back applying late in 2018 to wait for the 2019 purple stickers). Once you see that your check is cashed, they are pretty fast about getting them in the mail.

    I mailed mine just before the new year and it was cashed 1/31. This is a replacement sticker as opposed to first time application.

    I just so happened to trim the white when I was cutting off the XPEL and it looks sooo much better on a black car. I already don't have front plates so I figured if a cop is really looking for a reason to pull me over he'd find one anyways.

    There are so many people w/o stickers driving solo in the HOV lane, I think I'm low priority with my little trim job to make them look less horrific.

    (Mailed 1/1, check cashed 2/1, recv’d 2/7)

    Did you get the stickers before they cashes your check ? I mailed on 1/3/19 and they haven't cashed my check yet. I'm hoping it's not lost somewhere....

    The check cleared my bank on the 5th, same day they mailed it out. Received stickers on the 7th. I’m sure you are just days away if you mailed on 1/3.

    That looks so much better, I think I'm going to do the same! The huge white border is terrible. I mailed 1/3, will update when check is cashed!

    Maybe, it depends when mail reached DMV. I guess, matter of couple of days. I dropped at post office on 01/04 early morning.
