    CHANGED BACK TO NOMRAL

    Here is the picture of the tilted license plate bracket. I didn't want to drill holes into my bumper and I didn't want to spend the money for the grimmspeed or perrin ones. I still have mixed feelings about it because it sticks so far off the bumper but I still think it looks pretty cool.

    Congrats on the purchase! I'm surprised that local jurisdictions do not prohibit the orientation of the bracket you have installed.

    Welcome & congrats on the purchase.

    I don't understand. You have holes in the front of your bumper. You used said holes to mount front plate. But it is tilted & on a bracket away from the car?Did I get that right?

    What is the purpose of this?

    I have a tilted plate on my car with the front mount to attempt to keep the air flowing thru the intercooler and not being blocked by the plate, however that I'm sorry.. But looks difficult to clean and confusing as to why

    Aren't you worried about it creating lift at the front wheels? You might be able to take off if you go fast enough!

    I'm also not understanding why you couldn't just use the holes that are already on there. They're designed to work with any number of plate mounting brackets without any additional holes having to be drilled in the bumper.....

    I stated I have FMIC on my car and that's the point for the tilted plate. I'm not positive what is goin on up above

    VA driving laws are strict I hope you're ok with that license plate orientation.

    And nice ride.

    I just wanted to be able to use the OEM square holes...I didn't have to drill any new ones. I wanted a tilted plate just because I thought it would be kind of cool...but I am not sure if it really does anything. I have not had any trouble with the police yet but that is a good point VA cops especially Fairfax cops are pretty strict... I guess I will find out if I get pulled. I ordered the Subaru plate from the dealership but it required me to drill holes that is why I oped for the one above, no other reason than that honestly besides it being kind of different.

    I really wanted to get this one...do you thing the way my plate is mounted will really cause some kind of lift...I figure its way to small of a surface area to really hurt anything...I can always lower the plate more as well.

    I don't think the tilting plate looks good, but that's my opinion. I prefer the look of things that are mounted flush, even license plates. Why not mount it normally, then just bend the plate back a little bit?

    Yeah I am thinking about changing it...I just got it to see if it would grow on me but I it will most likely be changed to normal very shortly...
