Euro license plate

Hey guys I like the idea of having a euro license plate cause you can customize it. I think it would look silly on the front of my bumper so do you guys have any suggestions on wear to put it if I deceided to get one? Any pictures or comments are appreciated!

Someone (I think it may be DSXMachina) has one mounted on the inside of his trunk lid, so that it's nicely visible at about head height when the trunk lid is open and up.


EDIT: Yup, it was DSX. Found this picture of his in another thread:

I guess you live in a state that requires a front plate? If not and you may not like the look, think it over, imho it looks good. N4S

The front plate is now screwed to bumper ... being a curved surface the plate kept letting go in the hot weather...looked naff.

Yes I'm from NJ. But I got in a accident and needed a new bumper so they're putting on a M bumper and telling them to not drill in holes. I'm gonna see how long it takes for a cop to bother me without a plate and if they don't I'll keep it off if they do then ill just buy a mount

You can double sided tape it to ur front bumper. Get the tape with the red covering,its more durable. Had euro plate on my 335 for almost 3 years and was a PITA to get off after an accident. You can look at my photo album if you wanna see it on front.
Where in NJ are you? I am also in NJ

Never liked the euro plate on a US car. It belongs in Europe. Just my opinion.

I have a couple of Euro plates that I got from a friend in Belgium. Also from NJ and cannot use them.

I think a front euro plate looks good on the bumper, especially when it was picked up in Munich. It has special meaning to all of us. And for the record, 3 1/2 years later, it's still on my car with ze zuper strong German double sided tape.
