This kind of topic.
It is all about luck.
Seriously, I ran no front plate for 5 years without issue.
Then, boom~ 3 difference cops stopped me within 2 weeks time period for no front plate tickets.

Another cop decided to power trip and told me its illegal to cut the plate, and then insisted that I had cut it. But I had only bent it behind the German plate, he then used that as an excuse to look for something else wrong which he didn't find and let me go. He told me if he saw me with the plate again he'd VI me. LOL right..

Depends on the cop, but honestly you'll be fine

The top 1" of my front plate is bent - have had it that way for a year now.

No issues.

My old car had it on because it looked idiotic with a US plate screwed into an obvious Euro mount, it grew on me and I liked seeing the reflection of it...

Except I'm weird/strange so

I don't understand why ICBC can't issue us plates that fit on the bumper properly.

Been driving around like this for six months. I work nights and weekends so I've driven through about 20 roadblocks. I folded it back because it was blocking a lot of airflow to my intercooler. I would have done what snails did but my bumper has a intergrated spot for a licence plate.

I don't understand why car manufacturers can't make bumpers for the North American market that fit the plates used in all but MAYBE one North American jurisdiction.

Look at the picture of my plate above. Look at the mounting points.

Why would you run two different plates instead of just taking the front one off?

Some people enjoy looking like pretentious Eurotrash.

Yeah, because ICBC is the ONLY insurance company in all of North America that issues plates of this particular size...

It's a North American thing. If anything, bitch at the car manufacturers for giving us mounting locations that don't adhere to our plates.

I can't recall ever seeing this covered, but since it's related - is it illegal to drill extra mounting holes in the plates? JDM bumpers and USDM plates don't like to play nice.

Unless you drill 2" holes with a hole saw, I'm sure any reasonable person would be fine with 2 holes being punched along the top of the plate so that it can be mounted on different spaced holes.

Here's a Mensa approach suggestion...if the licence plate doesn't fit the bolt holes, why not mount a backing plate to the holes that fit and bolt the licence to the backing plate by drilling holes that fit? Nahh...too easy and nothing to bitch about on RS.

So then...your suggestion that common sense suggestions have no place here (in itself, a common sense suggestion)..has no place here?
