I need help understanding something. People don't put on a proper front plate because they don't like the way it ruins the front end of the car, and yet, they mount a plate off to the side using the tow hook, which IMO, looks way worse than running a properly mounted plate in the center.

I understand if you want to not use a front plate because it ruins the front of the car, but then why do something that looks even worse than a properly mounted center front plate?

Can someone please explain?

Great pics! Car looks great. What kind of spoiler is that?

I think that's subjective. Personally on this car I think the side-mounted plate gives it a sportier look and doesn't ruin the flow of the front as much as a center-mounted plate. Plus, you don't have to drill holes in the bumper for the bulky factory front plate mount, so if you did want to run without a front plate at some point it's easily reversible.
