    There have been a number of members that have used the tow-hook location to relocate the front plate. Just out of curiosity, what is your reason to relocate the plate?

    just changing it up a bit really... im adding red hella horns, a new blue "i" emblem in the front, and re using my original "WRX" emblem from the trunk on driver side of my front grill ( ya know, where the STi logo goes ) and i think i might look a little busy there.. so i was thinking of placing my plate on the bottom passenger side and just adding a simple plate delete.......

    Damn, do that's the mod? Drilling into it? I guess if I'm gonna keep the plate there it doesn't matter. But damn.
