Default Would you? DMV Edition

Got my custom plates for the BMW in the mail today, and they are chewed up pretty badly on the edges of the outer most letters (the O on the left, and the E on the far right). This does not look to have been caused by shipping as it just comes via USPS, and the plastic is still sealed. Would you call/go into the DMV to make them replace them if it were you? I paid nearly $300 total in registration to get these made, and it took 7 weeks to get, so I'm a little torn :

Red sharpie.

And make those the front plates so you either A - don't have a front plate, or B - front plates get trashed quickly anyways...

I feel retarded... I didn't even think about the second plate, gonna go make sure that one is OK now.

*edit*

Second plate is immaculate, fuck it, I'll throw the crappy one on the front, or hang it on my wall.

I hate the fact that they take forever to get to you. When I hadn't gotten mine for the 95, I called about it and they told me they mail them 3rd class. wtf is that shit

Flip shit. Between the normal 99 plus the extra million dollars in fees to get custom plates, not worth keeping shitty looking ones. Hell, I just sent in for "clear coat replacement" plates, just to get a free set for both cars.. I'm paying enough for these damn things as it is just being random issues, if I can get free new ones, I deserve it. haha

even though you won't use it... i would still bitch/complain... like Burton said.. would you accept any other 300$ item if it had damage? no... you'd return it and complain about it. do it on a really stressful day and you'll instantly feel better, too. hahaha

the DMV replaces old and corroded plates for free.. granted this isnt old and corroded...

Dan, go to the DMV express in wheaton. Make sure you talk to the guy at the counter.. every time i have went there he is super nice unlike most of the jackasses who work at DMVs. He may help you out

Dasfinc what kind of old bmw is it? I'm somewhat of an 80's german car fanatic.
My .02 is I'd be a little miffed but rather not wait the likely 6 weeks it'll take to get a new one... That being said, I've never had a front plate, and the only reason I got a warning for it once was because I was being arrested anyways and they were just trying to be dicks.
