    I prefer not to have one. Had some flat bar at home. I think it needs to be a little higher.

    I think it looks pretty good. I agree that it would be better higher. I also would paint it black so it doesn't stand out as much!

    I don't like it bro. But it's your car and you can do whatever you like.

    Or just by the grimmspeed piece that looks 100000093029384029384028 times better. Also, you don't have a FMIC, so moving your place serves 0 purpose. Way to waste your time.

    I'm in search of a protuner myself, but won't be ready for awhile. I'm moving the plate to stock location.

    License plate relocation is for cosmetics only. To be honest I don't see the stock location obstructing fmic air flow. After driving the car around for a week i decided to move it to the stock location. I did look cheesy.
