3m double sided tape, no holes
I'm getting ready to move to Cali in July and I'm guessing I will need a front plate. When I bought the car in 08 they swapped out the bumper for one with no holes. Now that I'll have to go back, what is the cheapest best option for a front plate?
I just ordered a 2013 TTRS and ordered it with the European front bumper...no holes...make friends with a police officer or CHP. Front license plates SUCK!! I've lived in Cali my whole life and I haven't been stopped yet for no front license plate...knock on wood!!
SB82, yeah it depends on what area of california you're going to be in. i live in norcal and ive been running around without a front plate with no issues. however, im usually in more suburban areas of the bay. if you're going to live in say, SF, you should definitely get a front plate.
can't speak for outside the bay area.

just moved away from the Olympic Peninsula, Wa. Pulled over for no front plate, $124 ticket, but my wife was driving, I wasn't with there...she talked her way out of it...said it was my car...
I drilled the front for a plate...it did hurt.
answer to post below, it was especially bad in a small town of 9K, all they had to do is check everybody out, and my car really stood out.

In California no front plate tickets are an equipment violation with no fine, same as window tint. You fix what u are cited for and get it signed off at any police station. There is a small processing fee of about 20-dollars. In my experience, most cops couldn't care less if u have the front plate. Unless you're a fugitive, u plan to drive drunk or transport drugs, dont bother with the front plate.
