I went through Europeanplates.com

I like the euro plate look. I just hate having to stick my Cali plate in front
of it.

Cali- If you got the same numbers on the euro plate as our cali plates, do you think the cops will mind?

Yes they will. I got pulled over last year for it...

I didnt get stopped for 2 years, but one night, they decided just to get me for it...

And mine has same numbers as my CA plate. I even tried to argue that it was more visible with bigger letters.

Hell, I had to go meet my dad after some guy hit him on the FWY, and I parked right by the Highway patrol and they were checking out my car saw the plate and told me it looked cool. then they looked att he back and were like that is nice.

So I guess it all depends on the cop...

Frankly, I would drive without it all the time and just use the euro. I hate the california plate on the front.

I was thinking of since I have extended my court date taking a pic form like 50 ft away witht he euro plate vs the california plate, and then showing that as evidence that the euro plate is more visible. hell wasnt it designed to be visible at high speeds?

thx for the links i will forward them.

lol i used to have a euro plate and never got pulled for it on. i think i have only ever gotten pulled over for no front plate once in 21 years.

things to consider when having a euro plate
1) it gives the cops a reason to pull you over. if u have a nice night of partying that could be detrimental
2) its only a $10 fix it ticket so who gives a crap if they pull you over
3) putting a ca plate over ur euro plate is ghey. see rule point #2 its only 10 bux after all
4) i hate front plates so i choose to use neither just look at my sig.

Ya me too, i like nothing in the front, plates dont belong there unless your a show car and it's your companies name or logo on it. As for the CA plates, they are ugly! but hey whata can we do. I have been pulled over at least 6 times for no front plate and only a $10 fix it ticket, and i use the same thing with every cop, "The Car Came Like That Sir". F them and their $10 ticket, i have replaced the plates everytime right by the courts right after i get the sheriff to signoff. Car looks better without a frontplate anyways. I didn't pay $80 for the filler part to put it on once and a while.

front plates NEVER have tags. the reason it is illegal to NOT have a front plate is because they need to be able to see you coming and going in regards to the #. this is why i never understood why some ahole cops have a fit over europlates that are matched to the CA plate.
