Arrow To prevent further police encounters...

I got the tow hook plate bracket!!! Love the look, but it's not for everyone. So far about 50/50 ratio on positive and negative feedback.


I actually would prefer to have no front plate at all, but here in CA it's mandatory. I was pulled over last month for my blue angel eyes, and the guy was a total dbag. Either that or he was in a horrible mood, cause he pulled me over for my AE's and literally walked around the car to find more things to ticket me for. I drove off with a tint ticket, angel eyes, no front plate, and for some reason I couldn't find my insurance card, so that too. Not really a big deal, doesn't go on my record and every offense is correctable, but for every offense I have to pay $25 to have it corrected.

Anyway... Here are some pix. Tell me what you think.

My OCD prevents me from liking anything that's not perfectly centered. So I could never do an off-center plate, especially one that sticks out that much.

Those amber covers don't look good mate. Take them off and get a black kidney grille instead.
