    I'm not familiar with "%100" (vs. "100%"). Interesting.

    Guy I know does that... Disorienting. If you were planning on making those available to others, I'd swap that.

    That really defaces an otherwise gorgeous car.
    Looking to incite some road rage?
    Not interested.

    I have to admit I was thinking the same thing. I already have "problems" with people trying to race me when I'm out. I think people see all those YouTube videos and want to try it for themselves.

    Seems kind of douchey IMHO but to each their own.

    I'd say "I'm not drag racing see YouTube for that!"

    I spend a considerable amount of my freeway time in the carpool lane, so I don't do much passing.
    On surface streets, I tend to do a bit more maniacal driving than I used to - sudden bursts of acceleration, 1-second lane changes, jackrabbit starts from the traffic light, those sort of quasi-legal activities.
    None of them really allow the driver who was briefly behind me time to do any reading. :)

    Ya they are the correct way 100 % on the others, mine was the only screw up but it's changed now lol

    Also it's not ment to inciting racing, it's showing the public that don't know it's Electric and it can be bigger than a Prius !!! When we are on the highway we are getting passed all the time if your trying to get the most mileage. But to each there own, 31 sold so far, so they must be liked by some!

    besides the obvious '%100' being backwards (which seems u already fixed), the 'A' doesnt look like an 'A' but instead a delta symbol.

    and IMO would never put something like this on my car. you're going to piss a lot of people off with your showboating and one day you'll come back to your car to find it badly keyed or worse. unfortunately that is the world we live in.

    Wow what a tough crowd. I can understand why none of the over 75 I sold aren't relying. But we did also change the saying so it is more friendly. So now we have two different ones available. Maybe this is better for some. Just like some would never put any thing on your car, others will, just like some think that wrapping one wrong, personal preference is a wonderful thing. Just like my T-shirts that I made for our towing industry, some like the slogans others don't. I'm sure the shirts I made with Tesla cars on it will be received the same way, some like, some don't. But I thank you all for your opinions & purchases.

    YOU JUST PASSED A 100% ELECTRIC VEHICLE !

    I want to get decals for each state the S visits. Be a long time before the LR window gets filled.

    75/25,000 = .3% dbaggery quotient.

    @towman26: I applaud you for your initiative! For me I am not always in the passing lane...I actually prefer taking life slower in my Tesla, enjoying watching people pass me and then slow down to get a second look...and then get a thumbs up!

    Now that's something I'd rather like to put on the front of the car. Glad you're getting sales, though. What I really want to get is a license plate holder for my wife that reads "Sometimes, I drive our Tesla"

    The "YOU JUST PASSED A 100% ELECTRIC VEHICLE !" IMO makes people think EVs are slow, which they're not.

    This line is more appropriate on a Nissan Leaf where I see them always getting passed since they can't go above 60MPH or else they won't make it home. I'm actually the one passing people in my Tesla. Something saying how clean it is or how much you love and won't ever give the EV up would be better.

    Possibly people can send you ideas or if possible custom make them individually although I'd think that may cost more.

    The public knows what a Tesla is now, no need to write it down for them.
    Actions are louder than words.

    1. Move next to the car you want to "speak" to.
    2. Match speed.
    3. Depress the pedal on the right fully to the floor.
