$50!!!!!???? that's alot!

If they were smart, they would makes these only $10 and really go nuts with it, people generally won't fix it for $10 and they might get more $$ that way, I tell you, a $50 ticket would change my mind in a hurry.

Garage List
I have the tow hook mount with the number plate installed
But it's in my trunk
I've used it once when I got pulled over
I told the officer, that I had just washed the car and forgot to put it back in
And he let me go
Only problem is that story only works if the car is always clean

What I love is my last no front plate ticket was in DC
So DC gave me a ticket for not having a front number plate, which is required by Virginia law
But that $50 goes to the DC treasury
Of course I lost my ticket and ended up paying $100 because I had to wait till I got the reminder letter with a $50 find added on

No plate, No tickets. I don't drive around during the weekdays, usually at night or in the mornings when not a lot of cops are out.

Btw, MDOSU, that is a nice picture...any more pics of your car?

Bro, you're telling me. All parked, during the day, in either Alexandria or D.C. And incredibly inopportune times too, since I know I'd get one, I rarely drive into the city but when I do, I get one in the 15 minutes I'm parked. It's ridiculous... either bad luck or who knows.

I haven't used a front plate since my 2001 328. And this year alone, I've gotten 5, probably more. I know, it's dumber than all things on earth.

actually, that's not my car picture, it's more or less similar, I don't have FR interior, but everything else is the same including the rho plate setup. Just wanted to show everyone a sample of the rho plate

Thanks to the lovely people at the BMW Performance Center, I still have my Euro plate on the front of my M3 and I intend to keep it there until I get my first $50 ticket - which may never happen
