    Smillie Face Lic Plate Place?

    D'yall think this is too smillie face? The good thing is, in real life, the thing looks oddly suspended there, not screwed to the bumper. IOW, because of the bracket design keeping plate away from the bumper, it is very easy to mentally separate the plate from the lines of the car.

    The bad thing is there's zero protection from someone backing into it.

    What do you think?

    Looks OK- maybe a bit low.

    Yeah, good point fer sher. It's going to be the first thing smashed at a curb or bump in road. FWIW, the bottom of plate is a bit higher than bottom of car. Stupid plates! it's trying to find the least worst compromise.

    Ditch it- I'm going to take my chances. I'll pay the fix it tix.

    Keep it in your trunk( next to your spare tire ) with double sided tape attached- tell the cops it just fell off and you were about to re-attach it. Like they haven't heard that one before!

    I have my plate along with the bracket in the front trunk, ready to tell the Polizia that I just now got bracket from dealer.

    A friend of mine did the following instead of spoiling his virgin M3 bumper...and
    I plan to eventually (maybe after I'm busted once ?) do this also: take a color photocopy of my front plate, have it laminated in plastic on white posterboard
    then two -sided tape it to the bumper in the usual place. It is indistinguishable from the metal plate unless you are two feet away from it, and lightweight enough for two-side tape to hold it.

    Although I like the idea of putting the plate over the toddler-tray way low as MMD pic'd above, imho it looks too buck-toothed.

    yeah, bothers me too, but at least it doesn;t cover the bumper way up near the trunk line.

    The other thing I noticed is alot of new cars have messed up front end grilles and which result in plates being mounted there and THEY look awful too. I guess we will all eventually become desensitized to seeing "buck teeth" thing?
