Got a citation to put front license plate yet don't want to drill holes on the front bumper. Any ideas and recommendations will be appreciated !!
I wondered what you had done to get the citation.All Californians have front license plate on their RR...? I have my 911 for 3 years without one and haven't seen an L405 with one....wife got one today as evidently she didn't stop on white line on STOP sign but did few inches past over to yellow?? Ridiculous !
Yes I know that for a fact that my wife was NOT nice to the officer, but hey...what can you do. I've gotta deal with it now ...I've never run a front plate in NY even though we're supposed to have one. I've been pulled over for speeding and my experience has been if I'm nice to the officer he'll give me a no plate ticket instead of a speeding ticket. So it has actually worked to my advantage, lol.
Yes purely for looks and cosmetic reasons, don't care about resale value or impact, whenever that'd be. IMO RR looks hideous with front plate...I will try to be a voice of reason in this to the best of my ability.
I fully understand not wanting to drill holes and mount a front plate into a very expensive piece of plastic. My thoughts on this are why not just drill and mount it?
If its because you feel resale will be hurt due to having holes in the bumper, your state requires it. Unless your planning to sell it out of state at some point then it wont be an issue when it gets traded in or sold. These aren't a common vehicle wehre someone is going to choose the one without a front plate as they walk thru the used car lot. Also no dealer is going to ding you for having the plate mounted if its required by the state.
If its for cosmetic reasons and you want to be able to remove later. If you get a few more tickets that will cost more than having someone fill in and dust some paint on the repair if you chose to remove it later. Along with that is if you try to rig it on there with duct tape and bungy cords (JK) and it falls off your not only going to get a ticket for no plate again but also have to order a new plate and incur more costs.
Just my $.02
