    Emailed you the video clip of the plate. The more I thought about, please don't host the link. Don't mind if seriously interested enthusiasts see the video but also don't need my license plate out there for the world to see.

    I noticed the plate was visible. No hosting!
    Thanks for sending the clip. Can you give me an idea of the price for this?

    I bought it off of eBay for around $115 brand new. Here is a link to one I found on there now. You will see that they show the plate frame mounted off center. I emailed them before I bought it to see if it could be mounted in the center because I didn't like the off center look. I was told no, but as you see it mounts in the center just fine. Install only took about half and hour.

    Hmmmm. I wonder if I could hook that up to my rear bumper so the red light cameras can't get me.

    Do these cars come from the factory with a Rhodes holder or is it something separate you need to by like the TP reset tool?

    D3 Cadillac has a nice front plate mount, uses the Tow hitch. I dont have a front plate, but its required here in CA, I would use that.

    We live in a small town north of Dallas. The day after Christmas, I was filling up my wife's Lexus 460 (no front plate on it either) and in pulled the local police to remind me I needed a front plate. Apparently it has been an unenforced law since 1930s here. Anyway, here are three options for tow hitch mounts for the CTS-V:

    Mower Deck Axles http://www.moweraxle.com/licenseplatebrackets.html
    D3 http://d3groupinc.com/license-plate-tow-hook/
    RHO Plate http://rhoplate.com/index.html

    I have researched them quite a bit and the one by Mower Deck Axles looks to be of the best quality. Not cheap though.

    I'm in central jersey and going with no front plate till I get hassled so far so good with my last two cars. If I do get pulled over I'm going with I ordered a bracket but its not in yet, and showing the front plate I keep in passenger seat back. Worst it will be is a ticket.

    I literally LOL'd when I watched the video on that auction.

    My concern is only with clearance. I scrape my front lip from time to time (often enough) and from the looks of that...I might be scraping off my plate or breaking the hinge. But damn, it is really cool.
