i have been pulled over for not having a license plate in the front. Is there a way to get past that? The body kit doesn't have the spots for the plate.

If your state requires a front plate I think it's probably impossible to get around it sorry, but here in Flo. we don't need one.:D

ignorance is now excuse...

did you need a plate up front before the kit? yes? then why didn't you put one on? go buy a bracket (universal or a nissan one) and install it.

use the 2 holes on ur license plate and put in some wire and wire it from the holes to your bumper. it will look ghetto but oh well. take it to the police station and get ur fix it ticket signed off. then take ur plate off again and u are in the clear.

Ive heard of some cops that pull people without front plates only because its a sign that they are running non street legal parts under their hood. I think they had an article about this in a recent super street. Just make sure everything else is good, ie ride hight and stickers

I got pulled over just a couple of days ago for that. I got a ticket for clear taillights and a warning for the no front license plate. Damn :evil I'm gonna change my taillights out but I don't like the license plate in the front soo I'm not gonna put it back on. Even if you put it in the front windshield, they'll still hassle you about it. It just makes me mad...they're out to get us.

har har har! you think they are out to get YOU? i got pulled over 5 times in 3 months in my supra, and not a single time for any moving violations. 1 no front license plate, 1 no front license plate, 1 window tint, 1 no front license plate and another no front license plate. $50 fine each time (been to court for all of them)you'd think by now i'd have put it on right? actually, at least one of those would have been a speeding ticket if i had a front plate on, since the cop was using lidar. but since i didn't have a front plate, he wasn't able to get an accurate reading.

I get around it everytime

The damn dealership screwed the damn plate on the front, I went home took it off and put plugs in the wholes. (Looks fine) Then I bent the plate and damaged the screws a little and threw it in my trunk. Been pulled over twice, and said it was damaged or what not, and they said please try to get it on asap.

umm......exactly. no front plate = they figure you might be running illegal parts, or a sign that you are. so they pull you for it and check. Im pretty sure thats what I ment.

What do you mean by there is no spot on the body kit for the plate? Do you mean that there is no designated spot for it on the body kit? If so, even before you put the bodykit on there was no spot for it. You need to drill into the bumper cover and make a space for it. Or you could put it in the space between the two fogs.

what Kit do you have? If you're kit has the big opening on the bottom just put some mesh in there, then put the plates on the mesh. you wont damage your front bumper and still have your plates on.

so you're saying my mom's i30 will get pulled over because it doesnt have a plate? and the cops will tell her to pop the hood? its just an EXCUSE to pull a fixed up car over. because they need probable cause to harass people....nevermind. its no use.
