GLS550
Hello!

Just picked up my CPO 2017 GLS550, got a lot of help on this forum throughout my car hunting experience and want to share the good news.

I never thought I would get so much pleasure out of driving a car. But the GLS550 had proven me wrong.

Question for the other owners: Under what circumstances do you usually get a ticket for not having a front license plate?

Congratulations. I still enjoy mine and it's been almost 5 years.

I do NOT have a front plate. I've been fine in Cincinnati but Columbus, OH will ticket -but maybe only when parked - I'm not sure they'll pull you over for it. We stay away from street parking there.

An answer to your question, Minnesota is very strict about having a front license plate and the cops will pull you over to ticket you for not having one.

Enjoy the 550, it looks terrific!

Thank you, I'm in WA, and that's what my dealer told me as well. Just steer clear of street parking areas.

Thank you.

How do you guys deal with it then? I do not want to drill into the car body, is there something where you can hang the plates without having to drill?

Do a search for a mount that screws into your tow hook hole. The plate will be offset but no drilling required.

Yes, all the new car dealers here drill through the plastic on the front bumper and place a bracket for the front license plate. I am sure you can find another way to attach yours. Again, enjoy your beautiful new ride.

Front Plate

Drive my 2017 GLS550 in So CA, in Orange County no issue due to number of “high end” cars on the roads here. LA county is different story, they ticket in parking locations, even ticket in LAX parking lots. Normally don’t take it to LA if going to park for many hours in public parking.
Congrats on your 550, looks great. Mine is Cardinal Red, porcelain designo with night package. Gets a lot of comments from people.
