I just picked up my plates and registration today. I'm probably not going to put the front plate on. Has anyone removed the bracket and found a stealth way to plug the holes so it looks nice and clean??

Exactly what I am doing in mine. Of course I carry the front license plate with me in the trunk in case the "nice cops" have nothing to do. :)

god I love being in a state without front plates! All you guys have to do is find the right sized buttons to fit in the holes. NIce work on the Red Speed.

Ya well your lucky diablospeed, cause in idaho you have to have them and it SUCKS! I do like what Mazdaspeed33 did with his plates although I have to wonder if that affects the cooling of the radiator. It actually gets very hot here in the summer, not like in Canada.

I'm glad they didn't even put the front bracket on when I got the car....I'm sure they would have if the car had actually sat at the dealer for more than an hour before I got it. I think the plate would ruin the front look of the car

how ironic... I was thinking of spraying that myself this weekend but it got too hot.

Nice work! If I am correct that removes from behind the bumper. Maybe if I win that HID kit I'll spray that piece since I'll have the bumper off......I don't like argent colored plastic what-soever.
