From far away, it can pass for a plate where it is. It'll look fake if you put it on the side because of the curve IMO

I don't get it, why is this better than a normal plate? It's still an eyesore either way.

The point is that it's not as much of an eye sore than if there was a regular licence plate mounted on the bumper, also you don't have to drill holes or come up with some sort of innovative zip-tie mounting solution to keep it on there.

If you have the $$$ for a Viper, i dont think you should be conserned for a $110 ticket, every few years!!! If he gets pulled over, they have all the rights to give him a ticket anyways...So whats the point!?

Neat idea, personally I am not too crazy about it. Fil is right, this guy prolly spent more on having that painted than 5 or 10 tickets would have cost
