Front License Plate

I was just wondering what most of you guys are going to do about your front license plate, since I got mine in today.

Wait till it gets too expensive to keep it off. Then figure out if keeping it inside on the dash appeases the nit pickers.

Required in VA but I haven't put mine on yet. It's just so nice looking without it. That said, I would hate to get busted for something else because I didnt have a front plate.

Or you could do this instead of using tape:

I don't even know where my front plate is... hmm not good.

I got pulled over around 5 times in my e46M for not having a front plate, but I managed to flirt my way out of getting warnings/tickets... Hopefully my luck will continue in this car!

I have not had one on my 325ci since I bought it back in 2001. I have lived in houston and dallas areas and have driven to austin probably 50+ times and no ticket. I was only stopped once by a cop that was standing by his bike at a school zone. He stopped me at a stop sign and told me I needed to put one on or I could get a ticket... Trust me you wont have a problem unless you get a cop that just wants to be an ass.

I hope so too in your case, but being a man and most cops are men I'm thinking I might have to use humor or something.
