Front License Plate

It has been over 10 years since I installed a front plate here in NJ.

Well, yesterday in the M5, I received two, yes 2, separate tickets in separate towns for not having a front plate installed.

Needless to say, I had the plate installed today.

So stupid.

Did you use a bolt on bracket anchored in the tow hook receiver?

Nope

Used the oem mounting bracket.

It was painful to see the bumper getting drilled but it is what it is

I don't understand why they drill the bumper!

Couple (or few more than a couple) of double sided sticky pads holds just fine, even thru the weather here in UK

I changed my plate a few months ago to find 6 holes, theres 4 behind the current plate. Looks like they couldn't make their mind up so kept drilling!

I never had a front plate on my M3 which I drove throughout NJ extensively for over 4 years. Although I avoided shitholes like Metuchen.

I don't have one on my M5 either.

edit: looks like the OP got his car from Freehold, NJ so maybe he's in the central/south jersey area. the cops tend to be a little more bored there.

I haven't had front plates on any of my cars, but its just bad luck. I've been ok for over 15 years. Quite honestly it's a nice point that cops usually find as a "lesser" ticket and give me tinted windows tickets instead of the speeding ticket i should have got. 3 tinted windows tickets in the past year alone and i'm thankfull for them. My family member gold cards usually sway it in that direction.
