Sadly in Australia both front and rear rego plates are mandatory. Otherwise how else will they get their revenue from all the mobile/fixed speed cameras and redlight cameras! (unlike here in the US where the cops are pretty lenient on no front plate).

I love the colour and really think it depends on where you live.
Here in Pacific NW, no f*cking way would I own it though....the tree humpers heads would pop off and you'd be slung up as an earth killing non-conformist, hipster hater...(personally don't have a problem with that).

But in Queensland, Australia where this car is, the weathers warm /hot and tropical most of the year, and the colour just works.

Also Holden has been doing bright colours on their HSV Commodores (think Pontiac G8-GXP) for years now, so the tastes of people there are more used to it. So a bright green M3 is a nice middle finger to what I affectionately call 'bogon sleds'. (Aussie for redneck)
