Where do you guys put these "Euro" plates? On the bumper so you have two plates? On the windshield so you're cool? Or and my personal favourite BEHIND the Ontario plates?

Do you think in Europe they get North American plates...i don't think they do cause they know it looks stupid.

uh, no.

its not an Ontario plate.

Therefore its considered an "improper plate" and you might get jammed with a $110.00 or $170.00 ticket depending on the cop...

I got away with mine for a looooong time (about a year) on my E36... It didn't match the rear plate and I had removed my front plate completely... Got ****ed when I went to visit my girlfriend at her cottage in Wasaga on a long weekend, go figure.

Yeah I hate the hit or miss nature of things like that.... you can get away with a plate like this for the longest time without a second glance from a cop until the one day you come across the guy having a bad day or trying to meet his quota and uses you as an easy target.

I'd buy one, but wouldn't attach it to my car... maybe leave it on the rear deck or something, or keep it in my place, who knows....

Ya I got hit with a $110.00 fine 3 weeks ago for not having a front plate on the Impala, I went for almost a year without it. I still haven't put it back on.
These plates are sick.
