I never put mine on and I've had my car since Sept of 2001. I got sited once by an ahole motorcycle cop watching the stream of a thousand cars inch down a gridlocked road. No one able to speed so he picks me out of the thousand and gets me for no front plate and tinted windows. I got pulled over for speeding and they never wrote me up for the no front plate. I paid the fine for the fix it and never did put my front plate on and never will...too tacky and I won't drill holes. Oh yeah, while he was writing me up I counted 10 no front plates and gave up counting all the tinted windows that went by.
