Apostrophe seems to be there because it's plural, similar to when people use C7's. I don't think it's gramatically correct, but that's the usage.
It's not grammatically correct and neither is the Oakland A's logo. It should be As if they want to show a plural. An apostrophe shows possessive case. The plural of C7s is C7s not C7's.

That being said, if it doesn't bother you or the Oakland As, it doesn't matter.

I remember your posts, as we were ordering 16's (there I go again) at about the same time. I think we also ordered the red/black two tone interior? I am still wondering how that will exactly arrive? I think as the one pictured in the preliminary brochure??
Yes that's me. The most recent intel is that the bash photo was correct and the brochure was not. So red headrest and inserts with the rest of the seat black if you didn't order the suede inserts.

No - not the suede seats, leather 2LT. I am actually hoping that is the combination (red head rests) as I think it looks better, not a huge deal, both look good, but that would be my preference.

Me too, and this information came from someone supposedly in the know. I sure hope that is the correct one. Of course until I'm looking at it with my own eyes or someone posts a photo of their car this week, I'll remain cautiously optimistic. Just hoping someone takes delivery of a TU7 optioned car soon.

Where did you come across those? Best license plate holder I have seen in years.

I'm not a fan of that license plate frame, but if you like it, go for it. Doesn't matter what we like.

I like my frame - rather unique! Found on eBay and worked with seller to get my color exactly. Carbon flash with DSOM.

It is amazing how often apostrophes are used when it is plural. I am a professor and most of my colleagues put apostrophes when the have plural abbreviations.

On the license plate frame, it looks tacky like the fake stick-on vents on 1992 Honda Civics.

Guys...

The OP already said, "Uncle" on the idea of getting the frame.


Just sayin'

Not for me, I still have the Kerbeck Corvette frame that came with the car. Suits me fine.

Just picked up the same - any concerns with it rubbing on the paint?
