I've pulled my plates off, but still have them on my dash. No tickets, but have gotten a verbal warning in a plaza.

I've went a year and a half and haven't had a problem. WTF is the point of a front plate anyways? If a pig pulls you over for it I guess it goes to show she/he has nothing better to do.

It's a $110.00 ticket if you get caught, but typically they will give you a warning first and then a ticket the next time if you don't "fix" it.

I have been driving around with a europlate since March and haven't been hassled once for it. But, in my E36 I got a ticket in Wasaga (after about a year of having it on) for the German Plate... So it's kinda a hit or miss... Either way its only a small chance at a small $110.00 fine... I'd say do it.

I have 5 years clean driving record, and got just that 1 ticket for not having the front plate on. As soon as I step in east end or some west end ghettos, that's when they pull me over and give me ticket without warning. I would not do it again. Too much bs and people stare at you when they pull you over. If they say no, I listen hehe

Yeah but come on..... who's gonna hassle some sexy chick in a drop top over a front plate? This guy's mileage might vary...
