Damn dealer drilled my front bumper for a license plate. :evil:

Did anyone keep their plugs? I am not going to have front plates, so I want to cover up the ugly mess that the dealer made.

Just got mine from Phoenix

Yeah, mine has the two big holes too. Assuming it came that way since Arizona doesn't have front license plates. Wish I had plugs though.

Yeah well if you do have to have a front plate you will need 2 more holes. Seems the stock holes are too wide and I guess my dealer drilled 2 more holes closer together to attach the plate. It does not look like it could have been done any other way. So total I have 4 holes. :( Anyone else with a front plate have this done?

Well i live in Illinois with you my man and i have never put a front license plate on any of my sports cars. I have only been pulled over once in 6 years(only got a warning too). It was actually the first car i owned(97 avenger ES) and it was the first night i took the plate off. Since then never gotten hassled over it once. I don't live in Chicagoland like you where the cops are more strict on crap like that though. Peace!!

Yeah I don't have a front plate on my Supra but the STi it does not look that bad with a smoked cover over it. I have never been specifically pulled over for it in my Supra, but it has been brought up when I got pulled over for other reasons. Never got a ticket for it though. Same with tinted windows. Anyway just putting a front plate on is less of hassle for me. Especially with a car that looks like the STi does, the cops will be looking for any reason to pull me over.
