javistor These guys here in San Antonio are relentless, I hate having it on all the time but I just rather avoid the hassle... I bought this product in Amazon and works with the tow hook, easy to remove if needed!

brgelise 3M velcro in middle of front bumper. Quick removal for track. I have a sto n Go on my GTS, great warning againt front rub as it has already worked... I really don't care if front plate takes the hit...ugly anyway.

GuppyCaptain Thank goodness Pennsylvania does not require a front plate but even if they did Id just take the occasional fine over ruining the look of a sexy Lotus with a gaudy front plate.

Some people have bent them to match... I just provided measurements and offered to be a test case.

I have the stock plate adapter from the dealer uninstalled and it appears to hang pretty low and I've already bottomed out or near miss on some friends driveways.

Is the stock just, gulp, drilled into the bumper from below?

Front Plate... sto n go?

Has anyone tried this?

https://bigmikesperformanceparts.com/

It seems like a great solution, especially to just keep the plate in the trunk and say "sorry officer, I just washed the car, came from a show, etc." and put it back on in front of him.

They don't offer our car specifically, but it looks like we just need a wide one and to attach it to the under bolts. I will contact them to see if one fits or if they will ship without the holes for us to do on receipt.
