Weird to have the date bought on the tag. I know KS has 60 day temp tags so say if you bought it 1/19/2019 the tag will say 3/19/2019. Missouri is just 30 day tags. So it would say 2/19/2019.

I am sure they offer tunes for them too, but that would affect the warranty and the reliability of it. I think just keeping it simple like what you said is a good idea. Carbon would look good on the eXterior. Like a carbon front lip and rear pvo style spoiler. Just tough to keep in good shape if daily driver. Mainly anything on the front end that is

ya im pretty sure arkansas is the same way but we bought in OK so we'll see how it all goes.

oh ya they have tons of tunes.. like 4 or 5 main ones plus more small ones... some dealers even offer warranty approved tunes! they have tunes that optimize with minor stage one tunes, or tunes for CAI and new down pipes that offer a really good boost. the base tune for the stock engine is +67 hp and +93 lbft if you add in a CAI, that goes to +78 hp and +108 Tq so i could be past 300 tq and about 300 hp for about a grand... i would probably keep it all mild.. it has a good powerband currently so im not wanting just yet but give it a year or so and that will probably change..

ya i liked the carbon i had on my first neon against this shade of blue, just need to pick up some pieces and get to modding. i will probably do the pvo style lip first and do the splitter later as it is daily driven... but i want an exhaust, just need to see if i pay for one at 500$ or see if i can weld my own like i have on past neons...
