    Required where I live. I've seen the Fasty's Garage magnetic mod. May try it myself. Also have some 'Vette links for the frame attached arms.
    Anybody have something good?

    Quite a few discussions on this. Many looking at the hideaway plate frame. I am just taking my chances right now, but will find some fix that doesn't require drilling front bumper.

    I'm all about complying with the law, slapped the factory bracket onto the front and I was good to go

    My 2009 Challenger came drilled and mounted. Don't want that on this car. Supposedly LIDAR aims at your front plate for laser speed readouts. Lower may help. Maybe a tilt down as well. :)

    We require a front plate here too. My bumper is unmolested (no holes) at my request. I'll be taking my chances as well.

    I'm seriously considering mounting the stock plastic plate bracket to the front bumper using VHB tape. If you are interested let me know. Once I work out what how I'm going to do it and if it works I'll let you know.

    VHB is strong stuff. I think it might work.

    Yes, let me know. I am sure many are interested and would like to know how it works. Thanks:D

    Sure will. Once my bumper is wrapped with film (next week). I'm going to look into doing this more closely.

    It's a $95 misdemeanor ticket where I live. Most cops are cool about it on nice cars BUT not having the plate gives them cause to pull you over. I've never been hassled but they have cracked down a lot more in recent years and I'm running front plates on everything else right now.

    I just googled that and watched the video. I have two concerns. 1) Will it stay on at obscene speeds... 2) it's going to scratch your paint. I don't care how strong the magnets are it will vibrate/wiggle a bit and over time it's going to trash the paint where the magnets touch the bumper. Just my .02...

    I think it looks worse down low like that. Also, will you have issues blocking airflow on the Hellcat?

    I'm glad we don't have a front tag. I won't move to a state that requires one.

    I told my dealer to absolutely NOT put that on the front! It's only required in my state if the car comes with it. So it won't be coming with one ; )
