5201. License plates shall at all times be securely fastened to the vehicle for which they are issued so as to prevent the plates from swinging, shall be mounted in a position so as to be clearly visible, and so that the characters are upright and display from left to right, and shall be maintained in a condition so as to be clearly legible. The rear license plate shall be mounted not less than 12 inches nor more than 60 inches from the ground, and the front license plate shall be mounted not more than 60 inches from the ground, except as follows:

Yep, my point entirely which is why I never got busted for it with the Euro plates on the Bavaria. BTW here's the pic of my Bavaria before I put the plates on...you can see why I did Euro plates.



I still have my E28 Dinan M535i too and will do euro plates on it as well...here it is.
