The M3 is the first car I've ever run without a front plate. Going on 3 years now with the car, and (knock on wood) so far never stopped for it. At that rate, even if I do get a ticket, like you I'll just pay it and leave the plate off. Luckily, I think most areas around Chicago aren't too bad about no front plate. A year or so ago, someone was actually trying to bring a bill to a vote to stop requiring front plates to save the state money, but it got killed in committee because of cop protest.
