Hey Ya'll...

I wanted to give you a heads up that I just got a $97 Fix-it ticket from Beaverton's Finest for not having my front plate mounted...it was displayed on the dash/front window but not good enough.

This still will not slow me down though... ;D

I went ahead and screwed mine into the front bumper. I don't want to give the PD any ammo. My windows are too dark as is, but I don't think they worry about that too much.

I passed on drilling any holes and ended up using 4 black zip ties and mounted mine to the grill work below the normal mounting spot...it looks ok.

before the crash i made a post about the fact that here in texas we don't need front plates, its awesome bc theres a lot of people that put european plates on the front bumper with stuff on it, today in my rear view i saw an M3 that said MOVE OVER, it was backwards though so you could only read it in the mirror, pretty sweet.

My dealership drilled a plastic license plate holder on the front so it looks like shit. I wish i didnt need a front license plate in PA you only need a back why is that?

Are you asking why we don't need one or why you need one?

I think fronts are pretty pointless... I mean a cop gets your license plate as he's following you, not by looking in his rearview. Witnesses get your license plate as you're leaving the scene of a crime, not approaching it. Photo radar gets your license plate after you pass them real fast.

Ohio requires them but I haven't had one on my Jeep for the past six years and I told the dealership not to drill the holes for the front bracket on my GTI I'm picking up this week. ;D

So I'm taking my chances with it again.

I do agree they are pointless to have. Just something else reflective on the front of the cars for them to bounce their radar off of.

its hard to say because the rx8 had no low end torque. i think probably the 8, but i couldnt say for sure, according to R&T the GTI is faster. The 8 handled like nothing else i have ever seen, but all and all i think it is a real toss up

cool i was going to get an 8 but it was a 4 door so i back down from it. Then the MkV came out and that was my love. I waited for ever for it to come to the market. It paid off i can say that.

"My license plate fell off" that's like saying "my seatbelt musta slipped off" or "my foot fell asleep on the gas pedal".

I got a "heads up" today about not having mine on from a guy at the State Highway Patrol examiners office. Even the lady that came out to inspect my car didn't notice it.

I was told "You know you can get a ticket for not having a front plate displayed" I said yes I know - I don't have the bracket on, need to have the dealer install it......

There won't be holes drilled in this FAST.
