I didn't even know it was legal to drive without a front plate. Looks so much better.

Hopefully that wont cause you over heating issues from blocking the radiator abit.

about the resprayed winglets and grill... is it much more cost effective than buying R bumpers etc? ive no idea of the cost of re-sprays of them bits.

Hi Laura,

Have to disagree with you - having your number plate attached by cable ties and restricting airflow to your engine is nor the cleverest of ideas - why not get the sticky pads and attach your number plate with them - then when you go to shows (how many a year ?? Lol) just pull it off and use turps to remove the adhesive !! But then again it's your car and you can do whatever you like to it - you aren't Blonde by any chance ?? Lol

i have a couple of ways to attach my plate to the front, and sticky pads isn't one on the list, I've just not been prepared on thoughts when i got it done,

and yes my parking is class ;)

drill holes in the number plate and do something someone else has never done, just don't obscure the lettering.
