Getting a new plate, help me pick

I'm getting a new plate and was pretty set on getting "ONE" then recently I thought about getting "EINS" (One in German) which would you pick? Both options are currently available.

Well not sure if ur set on it being one or the other but I have a couple suggestions. If you're gonna do German (Klein 1) translates to little one and the other is (25 til 2). Just my 2 cents. If I were stateside I'd do one of those 2 but between the two you posted I'd say eins I guess. Unless it will bother you when a tun of people ask what it means lol then one

I personally believe that a plate should be more than something simple and have a little meaning behind it. The ones like "BMW135i" or "UMADBRO" and stuff like that, just aren't original at all... Get something really cool if you're going unique.

I can't say I'm a fan of any personalized plates. I don't see the point in them. Just me though.

I agree, most of them are dumb, and a useless expense. Here in Michigan they are cheap however so i fell for it:

My plate is "MYOFFICE" yes I travel. The best part is I can be at the beach house and take a call from higher up and tell them I am in my office.

I think vanity plates are fun. I've used AMGEEZY for my CLK55, SWAGFX for my FX35, HITCH3D for the E93 335i and used that vehicle in my wedding videography, and recently BABY BMW as we expecting in my E82 135i.

EINS would be the best choice.
I chose ZUKUNFT for our Z3, which is what the 'Z' stands for (German for future).
Most people don't get these kinds of plates, but I've had two individuals who spoke German stop me and talk about it.
The rest just ride my bumper and crane their head over their steering wheel trying to figure it out.
