E470 bright orange transponders FTL!!!
« on: March 15, 2009, 07:15:30 PM »
One of our lisence plate mount e470 transponders quit working. E470 sent us a replacement and it is bright day glow orange!!!

WTH?????  NO WAY am I going to put a bright orange dog toy on any car that I drive.

Anyone else have one of these? Would look real classy on a sleek black on black S8!!!

I promtly sanded and painted the orange one black (like the original one).

Well that has to be the dumbest thing EVER!!  I can't believe that.  I still have one of the windshield ones, happy enough with that, but if I got an orange one, I think I would have boycotted 470 all together.

Way to go with the paint...good idea.

You don't even really need the transponder at all.  As long as the car/license plate is registered with them, you're fine.  If the signal on the transponder doesn't work, they just check the plate #.  I have the transponder sitting in my center console...
