Let me get this straight. Do you want a european plate to go on the front of your car? Or do you want to get the US spec license plate mount?

nah i'm sure the police would love that kind of thing. especially since in CA you have to have a front DMV issued plate and that's not asking for more trouble

Pretty sure you can't have euro plates in lieu of your front license plate (and, given that you're from California, you're required to have a front license plate).

Now I feel like a hypocrite for not having a front plate on my car at this particular moment in time... Oh well.

I like the Europlate look...makes me think I'm transported to another country when I see it coming at me. Last time it was an English plate and I veered to the wrong side of the road. Scared the crap out of me...it was like I thought I was in England.

You saw a car with Euro plate not being pursued by the police and thus assumed you'd be able to also? You should find one of these cars again and follow them around for a month or two, lest you, you know, get harassed.

Buy License Plate?

I'm in Cali. Been here for 4 years and never had a problem about not having a front plate. And see many with euro plates. So I don't think it's a big deal.

P.S. I've been pulled over a lot. Never has a cop asked about my front plate.

I'd say for you to get a turn signal first. Safety man, safety.

Well maybe two wrongs does make it right! Go for it!

Seriously, why would ANYONE do something that they KNOW is wrong!

That's gotta suck, lol. If you do pick up a euro plate, I'd suggest you pick up a turn signal as well, because you could possibly get a ticket for that.
