No front plate here since I took delivery last September. I was nervous at first but after passing alot of police and not getting stopped, now I don't even think about it.

I just got my car and I really don't want to put the front plate on, but I don't want to be paying hundreds of dollars in tickets

I have no front plates. Had my car since last May. Cops have better things to do than pull people over with no front plates.

I also drive around with no front plate.I personally spoke to a few police officers in my town and they told me as long as I don't drive like a maniac I should have no problems.

i do not understand for the life of me,why a state requires a front plate.usually the police don't pay any attention to them anyway.maybe one of the cops on the forum can explain it.thank god my state doesn't require it.it ruins the look of the front of the car.

I've been running w/o a front plate since July. I only got hassled once by a P.A. cop at the Lincoln Tunnel. I figure I know the law, so if I get a ticket I'll have to pay the piper. But I really don't want to put it on.

LOL, if you get caught going over 100, no front plate will be the least of your problems.

I was pulled over one morning doing aout 80 in a 45 zone. The no front plate saved me because instead of getting a wreckless driving ticket he nailed me for that. I gladly paid the $54 the very next day :-D

I'm playing it safe. Don't need the hassle. The plate doesn't kill the looks that bad, does it? Come on, be honest.

No front plate since I got the car in Aug. Have had everything from township police to state troopers look it over in parking lots and chit chat with me about it and they have yet to even make mention of it.

Heck, I've even been pulled over for "suspicion of erratic driving" (we'll leave it at that) and they clearly were looking for a reason to give me a ticket, once again, didn't say a thing about the plate missing from the front and yet clearly saw it wasn't there.

Moral of the story is just be nice and I am sure they will probably care less about having a plate or not. I always have mine in my trunk so if they do ask, I atleast have it on me.

I zip tied a bracket onto the lower grill. I'm not crazy about the look (kinda looks like a buck tooth, lol) but I didn't want to worry about being pulled over. No holes were drilled, so I can always take it off.

I ran from May to January without a front plate - no hassles - then I found this option on eBay via Sir Nuke - LS/LT = http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Chevr...Q5fAccessories SS = http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Chevr...Q5fAccessories

They also have versions for the GFX.

I bid the lowest amount and won. Install was a breeze and doesn't touch the front of the bumper, the lower bracket attached to the fascia bolts underneath and the top bracket attached through the grill with foam and long screws. I like the way it leans in a bit - looks like its being pushed inward by wind but doesn't touch the bumper. Here's a pic also showing the aac DRL LED P13Ws.
