Default front license plate ideas? or just be normal?

i finally got pulled over by a bored cop (all due respect) for not having front plate.

he didnt give me a ticket, but i do need to put the front plate on now.

any thoughts? ideas?

I would only trust Porsche OEM. Any aftermarket stuff and you could be playing with fire.

Another option is to epoxy some strong magnets to the backside of the bumper cover and then add a strip of steel (or more magnets) to the back of the plate, along with some felt or clear bra to protect the paint. Then the plate is easy on/easy off if you're the type to want to be able to easily remove it for whatever reason.

was a custom made by a guy that used to post on 6spd years ago. it's not dissimilar from the "us mill" one posted above. same basic design. plastic backing plate with metal and bolted together.

i like it for its "placement" far right on the car, and also the quick "6 spin" on/off. i've had it over triple digits mph and it's not going anywhere

Because it provides a great target and radar/laser energy bounce for law enforcement using radar or laser?

no, for the aesthetics alone. i prefer the look of the placement that makes use of the toe hook receptacle. i would've thought that that was clear from my post.

while evading law enforcement may be of concern for you? it isn't one i share. my experience of the toe hook mounted plate at triple digit speed occurred on a controlled, closed course environment in my backyard.

( to save you from responding with your next contentious reply ).
