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.

thank you for your info ///Maluco ... i guess i will just put the euro on my dash than ... sigh ... all that the ont front plate does is eat bugs cuz of its gaint size .. i don't even know why we need it .

btw qimis ... when is our cruise going to happen ? lets have a photoshoot with our euro plates on .. just don't go 90 on huron church or riverside *no-no* ..than we should be *th-up*

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

Should take about 5 min to get caught driving in mississauga. :(
