The Roundel is on the hood above the plate... why need two? I'd get the paint-matched bumper plugs and take off the holder completely.

Agreed. If you have the luxury of being able to drive without a front plate, do it, don't clutter it back up with a decorative plate.

if you don't need to run a run plate, just go plateless.

Interesting... I've never seen that before. It probably wont be too good of quality and pit up pretty quick, especially in PA. But for <$40 I'd say go for it then take some pics so we can see what it looks like.

It sort of goes in line with those hondas that have giant ACCORD signs on the windshield.

Even better when they say "ALPINE" or "PIONEER", tells thieves exactly which car to break into

just run without the plate, car looks much cleaner. I don't know about other states, but here in California if we get cited, it's only a $10.00 fix-it ticket.
