License Plate Frame - Tacky?

I drove by BMW of Fairfax today and noticed that their license plate frames have changed. On the bottom, it reads BMWofFairfax.com. No big deal, but on the top it reads "The Ultimate Driving Machine". At first, I thought it was cool, but now I'm thinking it's kind of silly. So, if you were buying a car from them, would you keep them on or remove?

I removed mine. It's a free advertisement for the dealership, they want to advertise on my car? pay me a monthly fee, otherwise, off they go.

I was thinking we should have a "e90post" in script form on the bottom of the frame. Can anyone make this happen? Would be cool I think.

FWIW - I'm frameless, and I like how it looks.

I've actually told dealers this. The look on their face is priceless. I usually charge $50 a month to advertise on my car - ergo, I haven't had anything like that on one in quite some time....

I was frameless for about a year.
Until last month when I decided I needed a frame.
I like it better with the frame.

I'm with you on not wanting to feel like a pimp for the dealer. I liked the chrome BMW plate, but I thought it might have been a bit too showy, so I tried to go for something that just oozed class. Hence:
