I like your placement of the HOV sticker. It looks like there's just room for it next to the wiper's swath.

I was thinking of getting a sheet of "fridge magnet" material to cut when I get mine, but maybe I'll just copy what you did. I just can't stand the idea of putting stickers onto a painted surface!

Yes, it just missed the wiper path, not on paint, and is not visible in rear view mirror because of rear headrest.

Anyone who's on Twitter may catch that joke. Otherwise, I'm sure no one will get it :?

I too hate the fact of putting a sticker on the car. Your magnet idea is exactly the idea i got about 30 mins after placing the sticker on my car! ugh... Figured I would slap it on the back when i actually would be traveling where HOV lane exists...

I contacted dmv with regards to following places like Ontario that actually implemented an EV license plate as this makes way more sense to me... also due to the fact its unique and on both the front and the back in BC. I have been stopped by the HOV police a few times and every time they don't believe its an electric car and then have to go to the back to see the sticker which still isn't satisfying so they always want to see the charge port. (I assume people already fake these stickers??) The response was they have no plans to implement license plates (fail)

Anyways before i put the sticker on my car i put a piece of tape and tried it in all different spots.... i ended up putting it on the black bumper on the bottom right where its roughly the same size as the strip going across. If that makes sense... i could take a pic.

No difference in handling at all.
Although the 2017 is noticeably quieter than the 2013.

Haven't quick charged yet nor went any appreciable distance with the 2017.
Will try and do a video if I do a quick charge trip.

Cheers

Chris
