my last 3 cars have had no plate, including my 335. Been pulled over twice in the camaro (it's white, with orange racing stripes and a hood scoop, so it kinda draws looks from smokeys), and got a ticket once. The cop that wrote me up told me if he sees me again without it he will tow me. that was 10 years ago. white BMW is almost invisible, as was my silver M45.

They use the license plate for optimal radar/laser reflection, and that's it. who reads license plates from the front??

Actually, a state trooper pulled me over solely for the reason that I had no front plate on my STi. He was a total douchebag.

Still to this day I refuse to put a front plate on my 335i and my tints are 15%. I don't give a shit if the police don't like it, its MY car and I drive it.
