    I live in Texas and I have been pulled over with every cars I have ever owned. Couple years after 9/11, I got pulled over and DPS trooper literally said "making sure you are not a terrorist since you don't have a front license plate." This was when I was driving 350z and i just said 'I can't be a terrorist because this car is a stick. Terrorists can't drive stick." He wrote me up. I knew I was going to be screwed either way because I am a Korean and he was trying to imply I was a terrorist.

    Just been told by my dealer that for the UK market you have to take delivery with the front plate mounting attached.

    He said Toyota UK stated:

    "As this is standard on the vehicle, we are unable to request that this not be fitted."

    Looks like bumper holes for everyone! (in the UK)

    Hello, so I stopped by the dealer here in the U.S. For those states that require a front plate Toyota dealership will be giving you this. I noted the that the plate can fit in the middle vent and be zip tied. But I don’t know how much it will affect the performance but can be a temporary placement till you figure it out.

    Do not block the center vent. That is the main intake for the radiator.

    Is anyone aware of laws/regulations around the types of places you can have in terms of color (e.g., would a black plate with red lettering be acceptable)? Just trying to figure out a way around having a white plate with blue numbering on a black LE.

    Unsure of laws/regs in your state, but how about a smoked licence plate cover and frame. Just a thought.

    Can anyone confirm that the Rear license plate holder uses 4 holes to mount? I want to get a custom plate frame & rather get a 4 hole if it accepts it. Thanks!
