I like the look of it.




pretty easy to do as well. there are five screws underneith the peice that you need to remove, and then five clips on the top.
The plastic is already rough so no need to sand, I used an adhesion promoter (available at any auto parts store) and then a metalic silver.

I think it makes the front end pop. :bom:

i took that whole bottom cover piece off and threw it away a few months after i bought mine.
I was under there one day and discovered that it was just an extra piece of stuff screwed to the bumper cover and said, it's gone. Now it's all one color.

Yours does look nice though!

I took my front plate off a few weeks back. Taking my chances, but no problems with the police yet

Yeah, us Texans cant take ours off either. Dont know why some states require it and some dont! But some people relocate thier front plates elsewhere. like the rice rockets that have ground effects kits dont really have a place for them so they stick them on the inside of the windshield. I have also seen liscense plates on the front of roof racks on some highly modified SUV's (like putting it on the front side of a yak rack).

Yeah to take off your front license plate is illegal in California as well but I caught the dealer before he even drilled the holes and told him to leave it off there for I don't have any holes in mine and the police here wont pull you over for it, they will just give you a fix it ticket if they notice it when they all ready have you pulled over. :)

when i was in MD, i got 3 warning and 1 $70 ticket for no front tag (with my trans am) therefore i let them put it on the X....plus the X doesn't look too bad with one, the trans am looked horrible with one.

Luckily Florida only issues one plate for the rear. :cheers:
X2 - New Mexico is the same way. I was given my front license holder in a plastic bag, with instructions on how to install it. So, with that being said, my front bumper has "no" ventilation holes in it.

even some provinces in Canada have different rules about not having a front plate like Quebec. As for the ricers..i was a ricer before my X. I used to own a 2000 golf Gti VR6 and everytime I used have my front plate in the windshield I use to get stopped all the time and sometimes the cop wouldnt let off with a warning and slap me with a $105 fine. So after numerous stops I put it back on.

When I had a rice rocket in CA in my younger years, I never bothered with the front plate b/c all you'd get is a fix-it ticket with a fine of $5 or $10. That plus getting the ticket signed off by an officer verifying plate is mounted in the front. I got so many of those fix-it tickets not just for front plate but others things like loud exhaust, tint, too low, illegal lights, illegal parts, etc., I eventually just signed the ticket off myself and mailed it in after awhile.

Alberts used to only issue one plate as well, no sure if they still do.
