    Coolest license plate holder

    Looking for a really nice license plate holder...anyone care to share theres?

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    For the front, the coolest holder is none

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    You know,

    this is an interesting question, I've always wanted to have a "james bondish" license plate holder that would flip the license plate each time i press a button. I think this would be the ultimate photo radar protection device ever.

    Now i dont know if this is illegal or if there is enough of a demand for this for me to make it. I already have a couple of plastic molds for license plate frames that i can alter in order to hold a lil motor. what do you guys think?

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    What would you define as being cool? Mine is simple black with as little showing as possible. I think that's the most elegant solution. Often times I see those with dealership names, manufacturer names, car model, etc. I think those are too much.

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    Ditto. I am already looking for one for my Oct build all white TT. California plates are white, so a black frame isn't going to work. Not using a frame is clean, but looks a bit unfinished. I'm thinking about finding a nice minimalist metal plate fame, and then painting it Carrara white - where would I find the matching paint w/o taking the frame to a body shop??...a spray can would be fine for this purpose.

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    Depends on where you live but I think the best holder is the _least_ memorable one. A nice simple black frame would be best, IMO. Better would be one with a laser sensor screwed onto it.

    Why? Because a significant percentage of people get p*ssed when fast expensive sports cars pass them or otherwise drive "wrecklessly" (when interpreted by a frustrated passive-aggressive ahole). The fewer unique features on your car the better.


    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    porsche actually makes a quality no-name metal frame that i think is available in chrome or stainless in addition to black...if color is an issue check out your powder coating options

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    How about one that says 11-99 foundation!

    Not an option for those of us outside of California.

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    Doesn't say anything cool but this Carbon Fiber one is on my 430. I've been looking for another one (for my upcoming Turbo Cabrio.) but can't remember where I bought it 3 yrs ago. If anyone has an idea where to buy it or maybe one just like it please let me know. tia~

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    This is mine. It's not real cf, just a metal frame with the cf painted on.

    Painted on? THAT makes CF _really_ lightweight.

    I agree...


    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    I saw a GT3RS around here whos front license plate is painted on.

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    The orange one? It's a vinyl sticker with the BC plate printed on.

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    yah thats it.

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    New to the board here but saw this post because I was looking into the same so I thought I'd share with you what I'm looking at getting - I don't have any equity interest in this place so there's no real bias, but it's real carbon fiber, not a paint on job - haven't received it yet but I'll let everyone know if it is in fact as cool as I'd hoped - http://www.autoplates.com/catalog/carbon-fiber-license-plate-frame-p-29556.html

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    To have the number ONE plate in your country/state says one thing about the holder.. This is the coolest plate where I live..

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    What is the 11 99 foundation? I have purchased cars with this frame and the sellers would rather not sell the car if they had to give up the license plate frame???? What does this mean???

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    11-99 Foundation information can be found here:

    www.chp11-99.org

    Some folks have reported cops being more lenient with them because of this frame. Some have even let them off too.

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    I think my plate holder says it all!!!

    So who is the guy? Govt.?

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    VEGASGUY: You aren't doing your plate full justice. I've seen your "real" plate not the paper tag, and it's great too. :-)

    The king I believe.

    I imagine he has more than one car so do ALL of them have the number "1" on them? Sort of like Airforce One for the president here... Airforce One isn't a particular plane but it gets that designation when the president is on it. (For an Airforce plane. Marine One for the Marines, and I believe "Commercial One" for a non-military aircraft if it ever came to that for him to travel.)

    Aren't those reserved for the Sheikh/royal family?

    Re: Coolest license plate holder

    It belongs to Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashed Al-Maktoom PM of UAE & ruler of Dubai.
