My state of residence requires tags on the front and rear bumper. I just took delivery of my new '05 GT (yesterday) and was fortunate enough to have a good salesman. Before he did it without asking, he said he would need to drill the 2 mounting holes to install the front plate. Sorry but in my opinion, this will destroy the beauty of the front of this car. But I'm sure it needs to be in place when I take it to be inspected. Any suggestions? By the way, I also told my salesman to make sure they did not apply any dealership name tags when they prep'd the car.
