IMHO, three-characters codes are much worse legible especially on blue euroband. The use of three characters is moreover useless, since there is no that many independent areas in the world the three-characters would be necessary for.

The "Winner" in category legibility is Montenegro : MNE on blue band looks like three unrecognisable white rectangles.

We're one of few countries in Europe that use the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code (SI) for postal code de jure AND de facto (all of them should, but they mostly use vehicle registration codes).

They first used GEO and then changed to GE.

Finland switched from SF to FIN as of January 1st, 1993. The blue euroband was taken into use in 2001.

(The letters S and F were the initials of the name of the country in Finnish and Swedish, Suomi-Finland.)

I remember seeing cars with an SF sticker far beyond 1993. I haven't seen them in the last couple of years though, the cars that still have them must be over 20 years old, and people generally don't take such long trips with an old beater. Finnish cars are somewhat rare to spot in the Netherlands, but not exceptional.

People did not remove the old sticker, even if they should have done that by Aug 31st, 1993. In those times, nobody was any more interested in the ovals, except some German border officers. Ordnung muss sein.

I have a feeling that Slovenia will be available at Google Street View very, very soon... Maybe in a few days.

A friend of mine spotted herself in the new Venetian street view.

After Slovenia, I wait for Austria and the whole Germany and Switzerland.
