It doesn't help when a parking officer is paying close attention to your car, as I found out. But it should help the casual drive-bys of highway patrol.
Thanks for the advice. I'll make sure to tell them not to ruin it! My CPO 328 came without a front plate, I was surprised, but happy.
Also, I've never been pulled over for it. And I've been pulled over and ticketed but he didn't both checking my front plate.
