In Germany front plates are mandatory. Hate it, but it is what it is.

Here's a funny story: I actually got pulled over once, in a BMW that I owned, because my front plate had fallen off (or someone took it--I really don't know what happened to it) and I didn't even notice it was gone. Anyway, the German cop told me to remove the rear plate and put it on the front. I must have looked at him like he had a dic* growing out of his forehead because he took the time to explain it to me.

He explained to me that because 99% of the speeding tickets in Germany are caught on camera and the camera always takes the picture from the front. If there was no plate then they wouldn't know who to ticket.

True story!

Anyway, I'm using a Graig's Bracket here on my Mustang and it works great. Even with these Ginormous plates.
