I've been stopped before not having a front license plate before. I had a 06' 330xi that time. The trooper pulled me over for not having a front license plate. He asked for my license and registration (the usual). Went back to his car to check everything is good. He then asked where I had my license plate and I told him it was in my trunk. He advised me to get that on there as soon as possible and to have a good day. That was it.
By the way, I was on my to work at that time and he saw my laptop and other work materials on the passenger side.
This is from personal experience
