You just tell them you dont want one when you order the vehicle new.
Unless you bought a car from there lot or used which had the front plates on already.

However, in toronto the cars come to the dealer with no holes drilled!

Well Written. The probable result from the bureaucrats will be to spend a ton of tax payer money on "new" aerodynamic front plates.

"primary point of attack"?!

Should have stated more clearly and directly that having a front plate on the vehicle increases fuel consumption and emissions.

I had the choice to have the car undrilled with no front plate.Too much hassle to not have a front plate.

i honestly had no reasons to otherwise believe it..we got our last 5 bmw's from him..and he's also a pretty good friend of my dad ..regardless it's a done deal..i'll just haveto buy an aftermarket bumper

as far as the petition is written, it's far from "well thought out" ..i'm not sure if any of the points are valid outside an enthusiasts mind..
