California is quickly turning into an awful place to be a car enthusiast. Tightest emissions laws in the country, the new exhaust sound law (can order you to make your car completely stock and pass an in-depth inspection), mandatory front plates, no front window tinting.. It's too bad that all the most popular aftermarket shops are in California, I guess the high quantity of idiots in California have ruined it for the rest of the population.Jan 1, 2019 a new law went into place in CA that requires dealers to install a front plate. You can no longer, sign the paper refusing it. It also requires a temporary license plate/tags to be installed instead of the dealer advertisements. You've probably seen them around, they look like a plate, but they're white with black writing.
