    Wow, Is it drilled into the bumper? I thought it would be like my Z06 and just be a stick on. I bought an
    aftermarket one for the Vette and I don't mind it that much.

    The factory bracket is riveted into the bumper, unlike the Vettes

    Re: Front License Plate

    Yeah, the license plate problem is very real here in the NY too. I've gotten a few of them now....when they used to be only 50 with a 25 surcharge.....now, they're 90 plus surcharge. I've passed several officers today with no problem, and got eyed-up by one of them, but didn't come out after me. The holes in the bumper are no big deal to me, but I am definitely thinking of the flip-up one mentioned on here, as well as the motorized one. 2 tickets would make it worth purchasing the motorized one.

    Re: Front License Plate

    I live in Chicago, I never put front plates on, I even have special plates for legalized tints. Crazy thing is I still get pulled over since most of these police dont know what my plate means, Than the hassle me for no front plate. So I finally broke down and put it on, Looks terrible with it on and I try not to think about it.

    Im in NY and i just got my plates, but i have ohio plates so im hoping the outa state plates will throw the cops off enough that they wont ticket me. And if i do get pulled over, ill say its legal in ohio, and im just a innocent ohioian visiting my brother.

    Re: Front License Plate

    Has anyone ever put a hideaway plate system on the V2 ?
    Motorsports has one and some of them are motorized.... BUT has anyone actually put a hideaway device for the front plate on a V2 ?

    Re: Front License Plate

    It would be interesting to see one on the V2... I am also in Ontario and I gave in and had the front plate put on. So even if I remove it now I'll have to plug the holes with something... hmm maybe front parking sensors in the holes that would already be there.


    Seriously though, whats the point of the front plate... its not like the cops will actually be able to get ahead of you

    Re: Front License Plate

    Called SwiftMotor Sports they have sold several to V2 owners they claim with no returns.

    If so, is there a FORUM member that has this from SwiftMotor Sports

    Re: Front License Plate

    Front plates useful for photo-radar, speed traps, toll roads, and if you hit a pedestrian so hard that it leaves an imprint. J/K on #4 of course.

    I would be very surprised if you took a vote, that the general population agrees with paying more money for these "benefits". Just more proof our elected officials seldom care about the average Joe.

    Although it does make me wonder how many gallons of fuel are wasted every year by putting a flat board on the front of cars that spent hundreds of hours in wind-tunnels to avoid wasting fuel in that manner.
