$105 but if you fix it and have a cop sign off on the repair it's like $50.

IMO, center it so it doesn't look odd.

Regarding the mounting bracket? Use your ingenuity and resourcefulness to mount the plate and it's bracket as far away from the car as possible; like an inch or two. That way it looks separate from the lines of the car.

I'd think its not a valid option and its a mater of time before you get a citation.

The scan applied doesn't have the reflectivity or readability of the rigid and flat plate provided by the state.

What I don't get is why we cannot just have front plates that contain only the necessary info in a small number tag like you could get by just cutting the border spam off of the plate in a metal shear. Then we could use a smaller front plate bracket.

Uh Oh...? Nice work, but, I'm sorry that will likely be considered totally illegal. Why? Because AFAIK they want the highly reflective surface of the original plate for their laser guns.

The Skene looks best to me. Let me know if you're ordering one and maybe we could order together and split the shipping to BC!

I just installed the Skene Design today, and believe it is the best option. I have already gotten used to a front license plate. The 2 holes you drill are in the underside of the non functional air scoop and you couldn't see them unless you removed the bracket and looked from underneath. It is so much better looking than the offset toe hook install. It does take some planning, but the plate will just about fit in the height of the center scoop, and does not protrude.
