Pic Request: Show me your license plate frame

I'm having trouble deciding on a license plate frame so I figured I would open it up to the General Topicers.

Extra points for posting the "BMW Performance" or "Carbon Fiber Slim Line" frames.

Ready, set, post.

I bought a real carbon fiber plate frame on ebay for like $35-40 and love it! matches my roof and spoiler perfectly.

www.autoplates.com has a decent selection of plate frames, but no carbon fiber.

Last year I ordered one of the zinc plates
http://www.autoplates.com/store/cust...FrameZinc.html
for my wife's new toy car -- 500 Abarth.

She opted to have some words laser cut into the frame. See pic below.

I keep thinking of getting a chrome one made with "The Last of the V-8 Interceptors" but I don't use a frame, and I guess I don't really want one either since I never actually order one.

This mentality is weighing heavily on me.

Do I actually want a plate frame? If so, wouldn't I have one already?

I'm leaning toward the white "BMW Performance" frame.

Silly details make for silly threads!

No plate frame at all. Never understood the purpose of it.

$80ish. Not a big jump but it is just a surround for your license plate after all.

I don't have a trunk badge on my car sooooo maybe I'll just go with an "M3" frame.

Still leaning white "BMW Performance".

I know this isn't on my M3, but I think it is cool so I'm posting it anyway. Back story is that a buddy of mine who is a pilot and owned the same single engine piston airplane that I have really wanted to upgrade to an Eclipse light jet. His wife got him this plate frame custom made. Well a year ago he finally bought his eclipse and since he knows I want one badly as well he sent me the license plate frame which I mounted. I'm hoping I get to give it away to the next aspiring Eclipse owner soon...

Mine is lame, but I had to show my school pride.
My car is Jerez Black, and it is not bad with black frame.
