When was the smaller early tag replaced by the later bigger tag? If that is something that shouldn't be known for obvious reasons by all means don't answer that. I'm just curious. That car is probably not too far from where I live. New Castle county line is just a few minutes drive from my house. That Price person has a lot of Honda dealerships here in Delaware.

The larger size tag for a 12A 124379N554655 car is correct, but that is not why I was able to ID it as a fake. I will not post that exact date of the tag size change, but if you read the CRG some more you might find the answer on why this one is an obvious fake.

Amazing; again.    Two fake tags in one day!   Wonder what it was originally?

Could be anything. One thing for sure - my 12A X66 car does not have the X66 on the tag - I believe this tag is a week early for one, for two it's just too perfect. IMO -

I realized what the dead giveaway was after I read mickeys response. It just goes to show that you have to have all the right info right at the tip of your mind.

Guys I'm not a CRG member nor the trim tag police but if you want to discuss what's wrong with a tag please do it thru PM and not on open forum. Now all this guy has to do is take his tag and modify just a touch since he knows what's wrong. Go ahead and give me some backlash but I had to be reminded a couple times myself so don't take it personal.

Everything relevant to the tag issue can be found openly on the CRG pages anyway; if someone can't be bothered to read that, they probably wouldn't be interested in reading these forum discussions either.
Point taken all the same.

My favorite part of the ad for.this fake camaro is that for kind of money it does not run well but for a fee after bought they will tune it for you! Isnt that nice?
