yes, done that on my old Evo and on my Z too actually. I need to put it somewhere though... cops are already looking hard at me because there are no other WRX's like mine on the road ANYWHERE local to me. Wish there were... but no unfortunately not.In my trunk.. under where the spare tire goes.
^^Someone please buy this and review it, I've been eyeing that for a while. (Oregon requires front plates, and they're sticklers for it, at least in my area).If your state requires one (PA does not, so I don't have one), get one of these....mounts the plate off to the side, attaches to the OEM tow hook mount.
GrimmSpeed License Plate Relocation Kit Subaru Impreza 2008-2011 (inc. 2008-2012 WRX/STI)
Definitely like that... may go with itand this thread announcing the release shows some images of it installed.
I was confused about this as well when I bought the car. I was told the squares on that bumper are for longer (European style) license plates. There are also two dimples that are closer in where you're supposed to drill the plate into.mine has like squares where the mounting holes are supposed to be... aren't there like plastic clips or something that go there?
+1I have never understood this.. Sure if you have no holes in your oem bumper dont put it on, if you have a front mount intercooler, I understand dont put it on.. More than likely you have holes put the ****in thing on your bumper.. There is an ugly spot in the bumper for it anyway.
i have had the grimmspeed kit since it came out. fits perfectly super easy to install and there are a ton of adjustments to angle it however u want. looks much better than the stock plate location just sitting smack in the center. i'll give it a 9/10 just because it could have been a little less money^^Someone please buy this and review it, I've been eyeing that for a while.
