I created additional hardware on the center area and tightened up the gap & seams. So itís on rock solid. The only way to make it better is to extend hardware to mount it against the reinforcement bar

I just had it reinstalled and my entire front bumper is now filled with holes and hardware to hold it down. We'll see what happens. I really love the way it looks.

This - been driving in nor & so cal for 10 years with no front plate and never pulled over or ticketed for it, but have been pulled over a lot!

Once I was even pulled over by a noob for my Euro plate before I got my state one - told him the scoop, he didn't believe me, called it in - they told him to let me roll (I heard it!) but he still couldn't believe it so called someone else, i have no idea who, they researched it, told him to let me roll, he gave me a 10 minute speech on how it was legal "i guess" but blah blah blah wounded ego blah blah blah, then let me go.

Took almost of an hour of sitting in a mall parking lot. We had just gone to the grocery store so eventually we popped the trunk, got out some picnic supplies, dropped the top, and sat on the rear seat ledge picnicking - which is where he gave me the speech. A small crowd developed waiting for a show.

Anyway, i bet that's the last license pull-over he does, is my point.

This is one of the best looking cars I've ever seen, wish my M2 looked more like that.

SMB looks amazing!!!!!

Good that some are smart and confident enough not to take a drill to a perfectly good front bumper.

And you're lowered on Eibach springs with GC camber plates? If so, what camber settings are you running?
