I live in a front license plate State too, however the Highway Patrol seem to rarely ticket for the absence of a front plate. Some municipalities, like San Francisco, are more vigilant and tickets are somewhat common. I am going to run a front plate. The last thing I want is DW to rip me a new one if she gets pulled over for lack of a front plate. I can live with a front plate depending on the location. I don't want it in the center of the front fascia! I agree with you, I want it down low and LE seems to be okay with that. I want to install the plate in front of the lower "grille" section. My concern is how that might effect battery cooling. The time is coming when license plates and car pool lane stickers are no longer required. Each vehicle will have a specific electronic signature that can be read by roadside monitors. These will control speed violations, reckless driving, record auto accidents, car pool lane violations, DUI infractions, and who knows what else. It is coming, count on it. I don't have a problem with that scenario but I know that many people on this forum will. I can guarantee they are watching. I don't know how many for certain, but I have identified at least two. That is why it is important to respond to the survey above as well as listing your preferences in a post for those things not on the survey. If there is a market, they will supply it.
