    Yes, we need clarification on Harry's point. New plates that can be scanned to serve the EZ Pass system will soon be required. The current debate in Albany is if they can force us to pay a fee or not. Until they resolve this I'd hate to pay $60-90 now only to have to do it again to get new plates next year. I couldn't see the image Harry attached so I'm trying to add one myself. If it doesn't work try the link below. The new design is much better than the loud orange ones.

    I don’t see why we would have to get new plates. The NYC area has already gone to cashless tolling with the current plates, and DMV will only require people with plates older than ten years to get new plates under this new plan. My assumption is that they want to get rid of the peeling plates before the whole state goes to cashless tolling.

    From the information that I can glean from the NYS DMV website, this is likely to be the design. The new design won't come out until April 2020, the tenth anniversary of the Empire orange plates.

    They may change to something based on the new design, but in the past, the professional/club plates have lagged behind. With a new vendor, it's difficult to know for sure.

    I would definitely be in as well. Can we use that older plate design or would they make us use the newer one like this? Or will there be an even newer one now that we’re switching plates again? Lol

    I would be interested in these custom Tesla plates.

    And by the way, all NY plates will be changing to a white background starting next year with a required replacement of plates older than ten years.

    Just found out about the NY Tesla club totally by chance in course of a google search for info on new service center in Rochester.   

    Clearly we need a better publicity method.  There are at least 6 Tesla's here in my small village of Skaneateles but no one knew about the NY Tesla club.

    Suggestions:

    1. Brochure, folder, flyer at Mt. Kisco delivery center asking the center to give one to every new NY delivery. (Considering we are an officially sanctined Tesla club)

    2. For NYT members who are also on other Tesla Blogs, insert info about  the NYT group.  I am thinking of the official Tesla blog and Tesla Motors Club for example, both of which I have been signed on to since I ordered the car in April 2016 before I ordered Model 3 car in June 2018 and took delivery in November 2018.

    Just a clarification on the DMV requirements for a new custom plate design. The DMV requires 200 plates to be sold in 24 months.  (With 500 members, we have a shot.) They require a $6,000 performance bond, the cost of which could be as little as $600. If all 200 are sold, then the bond is released. If not, the DMV draws on the performance bond (pro rata based on other DMV information).

    Let's see if we can get a rough count on those interested in the plates to see if it's feasible. A sketch approximating what it may look like is attached.

    Custom background plates are a cool way to differentiate (I have a non-yellow one, only for State Parks Empire Passport holders).

    Be aware, though, that ordering custom alphanumerics is limited to 6 characters on these. . . .

    Small world. You wouldn't happen to be a Redditor near Albany with a red 3, would you? If so, we've chatted over there .
