Im planning to mount mine only on the front, below the BC plate. A few plp I have seen, do that, it's pointless to mount it in the back cover it with your BC plate ..

i was doing 90 on huron church and weaving in and out in traffic, running kinda late to the bond facility. and there was a undercover popo in a camaro came out of expressway. that's why he pulled me over, other than that should be at least a week i guess.

i would just go w/ 1 plate at the front, it looks 'stupid' or way too much having 2 plates. $0.02.

I used to have Euro plates up front on my first car, and never had an issue since in the early 90's, it wasn't very common.
I only had an officer comment once that I had to turn my Ont. plates vertically because it wasn't clearly visible.
I had the Euro plates on the bumper and two brackets coming down from behind to hold the top of the Ont. plates below the wide Euro plate. I liked the way that looked as opposed to having the wider plate below it. I know it's a bit much, but I broke up the white from the two plates by placing a smoked lic. plate cover over the Ont. plates.

The wider Euro plate will only look good if you place it way down on you spoiler so you don't cover up your radiator opening.

Now if you place the Euro plates on the front and have your Ont. plates on your dash, it won't be long before law enforcement begins to hassle you over it. Unfortunately, we require these plates, unlike Michigan and some other states where it is optional.

2 plates is just "rice" in german whatever the word is.

I say risk Only a Euro Plate up front and change it if you get caught.... Fine is only $110

ok check out mine...i should get a pic of the back as well...i mounted euro plates in both the designed spots on the car...where ud normally keep ur bc plates..i made a hanger that hangs my bc plate below that, under my bumper...(no lights but no one has whined yet.) and my front bc plate is in my window, use radar dector suction cups to mount ur plate on the window. I get asked like once a day if my cars from germany..its awesome.

Funny thing is the cops cant do shit the way i have it...at least not in bc. My front plate is in full view, and so is my back plate...only thing wrong is that the rear plate isnt illuminated...but they wont know that unless they turn off their headlights :P

You guys may think this is rice but I just love German cars along with Euro plates:
I had a Neon that I thought would look unique with Euro plates. I first had a French plate then finally changed to a German one (just on the front). In Tennessee, you are only required to have one plate (the rear) so I never had any problems. When I attempted to cross the Canadian border back to the US, the border patrol practically interrogated me.
