FWIW I haven't had a front plate on for over 6 months now, no issues. I see 10+ cars without them on average daily. I keep it under the passenger floormat just in case, and my excuse is "I just had a Focus meet the other day" lol.

Things might be different down by you though.

It's in the hatch with the bracket, figured I'd tell them it broke and I just fixed it... But I'll cross that bridge if/when I get there

Looks like you could go lower yet... ;)

Are you going to be able to angle in/out at all?
