    It's 30 bucks at the dealer. Really cleans up the front.

    "Secondly, there are plenty of realistic BMW owners in here posting that they lost. I don't see you asking asinine questions in their threads. What about the Ferrari kills Ingenere posts?"

    Looks like you're right. Exchange rate be damned, it was $33 when I bought mine.

    I just picked the trim up at Apple BMW in York, $60. Pricey based on the prices listed in this thread, but I'd still happily pay $60 to get rid of that plate holder

    I know for a fact Ohio has front plates. Are you not required to use them?

    Unfortunately yes. I pull the front plate on all my cars unless there is a mount. When I get caught for it I just play dump and say I could not find any screw holes and do not know how to use a drill. It works most of the time.

    That is funny. Even though you folks in Ohio have to deal with front plates, at least you don't have insane state inspections.

    I am glad we do not have those inspections. They sound terrifying. The county I live in no longer has emission testing!

    Eh, our cops really don't care.. I've done it for years and haven't had an issue.

    That is amazing. I got rid of my 98 e38 because it was not going to pass PA inspection for 2009 since there was a rust hole in the body big enough to pass a finger through. That is the real test in the book to, if you can pass any finger through the hole, it does not pass inspection.
