    458 License plate solution

     I saw my first 458 today at the dealer, the first to come to my country I believe. I was with my wife and, I have to say, my reaction was rather childish. I was so excited that I pulled off the road into a small car park and nearly drove into a metal post. I was explaining all the features to her - she could barely understand as I was running all my words together. I am normally much better at self control.

    The best part was she give her permission for me to get one any time (as soon as I can afford it....Smiley). But it is the first time she has seen something she was happy to let me give up my C4S for. Anyway she agreed with me that it looks really HOT. 

    I took some photos with my phone of the way they have done the license plate with a custom made sticker, I presume with the blessing of the local authority. Has this been done anywhere else yet? Certainly it is nice to keep the front lines clean and retain the prancing horse.

    I noted it had Pirelli P Zeros - what are they being delivered with elsewhere?

    Mine will be the same colours as this458.JPG

    I don't think it looks nice there

    For this car it's best if the front plate is omitted, for the sake of preserving the looks.

    Anyway the driver would probably risk a much bigger penalty through breaking the speed limits, so a missing plate wouldn't count for much.

    Sorry mate, license plate looks absolutely hideous like this.

    Don't run a front plate. I don't on my Audi. If I run afoul of local authorities (DC can be pricks sometimes) I just stick it in my front windshield between the dash and windshield on the passenger side.

    Or I pay the stupid $55 fine for "License Plate Not Affixed To Front Of Car" fine. Call me vain.

    Actually, it's not completely against the law.
    It can be done for certain car models, if you can get the manufacturer/importer to provide you with a letter confirming that a "Klebeschild" is necessary for technical reasons. So you do have jump over some bureaucratic hurdles and through some hoops to make it legal.

    Re: 458 License plate solution

     Not having a front license plate is not an option here, it has to be fitted. Some of the other options seen in this forum have not been too good, especially with the plate wedged on an angle on top of the prancing horse. 

    So if it has to be somewhere, it actually looked not too bad and much smaller than the standard plates in my country and left the nose clear.
