I drove by a shopping center once where these kids like to gather and the cops waved me in and asked me for registration etc. He even wrote me up for tints (legal in my previous state) which is fine, its the law, what was I going to do. But I;d rather not keep getting waved down for something as trivial as a front plate and paying $50 fix it tickets when they need to meet quota, its just a waste of my time.

As much as I hate the front plate, I think the US Millworks tow hook mount is the best looking way to go about it. Its easy enough to remove and i dont have horrible holes in my bumper.

I actually thought about removing the plate for the pics, but my tow hook cover was at home.

Thx - i felt like the wheels looked OEM'ish, so stuck with the BMW caps. Plus the Modulare caps have chrome rings on them, which I wanted to avoid.

Wait. So is it customary to use the wheel brand center caps or the car brand center caps?

Most use the wheel brand cap from what I've seen.

it shocks me that you would want to live in a place that forces you to put a licence plate on the front bumper of your car.

but in all seriousness, WTF is up? theres already a licence plate on the back of the damn car. thats enough.

Here in the UK we have to have two plates so "Plod" can nick you for speeding even if he can't catch up.
Also so the speed cameras can trace you from front or rear photos.

LOL. Well I guess there is a lot you don't understand. My comment which I think most here understood for its true intention including the OP was that I was complementing the OP's car because his mods are to my liking and his car is beautiful, but unfortunately the plates are nasty. An unfortunate necessity, I get it.

And for your second point, no I have not used the picture I pasted in this context before. It actually just popped into my head and was an attempt at a little humor.

So did somebody piss in your cornflakes? Cool your jets bro, we are on the same team.
