Hey I was just curious cause I've heard too many mixed comments about this subject. Alot say that it is mandatory to have 2 lisence plates on your car but some say it isn't as long as you have one on the back? I don't know if I should put mine on my car? (2000 323ci)

AZ325Ci is on a distinguished road
it depends on where you live.

here in arizona, you are not required to have a front license plate. in fact, the motor vehicles usually only give you one plate.

i know there are states that require both plates, so it depends.

personally, i like it without the front plate.

the S40 actually looks WORSE if you dont have a front licence plate of some kind because they put on a specialized holder for it



i am really starting to love the S40, expecially the gas mileage. i have never gotten less than 25 mpg, and 30+ mpg is more common. And believe me, i shouldn't be getting that the way i drive B) lol

it is required in MD and Iowa, i know that

It is not required in PA

btw thats not my car but some random internet pic

It's required here in Connecticut but I don't have mine on (I think it spoils the way the front looks). Basically it just means an extra ticket if I get stopped for speeding or parking violations.

That's what I'm here for; sage, yet disturbing advice.
