    licence plate

    Hey guys,

    Should be expecting my 997S soon, was wondering does the car already have the holes for the licence plate or is the dealer going to drill them.

    Thanks
    Ciao

    Re: licence plate

    The holes need to be drilled. Ask your dealer not to install the plate if you do not want the holes.

    Re: licence plate

    If you're adamant about no holes, ask you're sales guy to put a note on the car so the detailer doesn't randomly do it. Apparently it's now law in CA that a front bracket needs to be attached on a new car. I don't know if they are enforcing it.

    Come on guys. Nobody needs to drill holes in the license plate nowadays. You have available these you-don't-need-to-drill-a hole-in-your-plate-mounting for ages.

    Here is what the law says:

    A new state law that took effect Jan. 1st requires dealers to tell people buying vehicles without front license mounts about the state rule.

    Customers who don't want the dealer to install the mount must sign a waiver acknowledging they were warned.

    The new law, as it was originally proposed, would have required front plate mounts on every new vehicle, but car dealer lobbyists convinced lawmakers to water down the legislation.

    "Why should we whip out our Black & Decker when the consumer doesn't want to drill holes in the thing?' asked Brian Maas, the director of government affairs for the California Motor Car Dealers Association. "It's their individual responsibility and their decision

    The California Highway Patrol cited 123,544 drivers between 2000 and 2003 for not having a front license plate.

    Most Porsche Dealers are smart enough not to drill the holes.

    Even my BMW dealer was sharp enough to ASK me if I wanted THEIR bracket installed on the car.
