I was just pulled over by a motorcycle and given a Fix-It ticket (well, 3 actually) for the lack of a front license plate, hte darkness of my tint and my exhaust being too loud. Funnily enough the exhaust was installed yesterday and is only the Eisenmann race. I don't think it's that loud, but we'll see. This I think I can get around quite easily.
That said, what's the best way to mount the front license plate without damaging the front bumper? Preferably something temporary.

Thanks for the suggestions gents. I'll take a look at the links in a few.
Ironically, after all this happened I went to base to get a new base sticker (those in the military will understand). Well, sure enough, I'm sitting there talking to the Sgt and ask about what the legal tint is in Cali. He says he isn't sure but asks why. I mention the Fix-It tickets and I'll be damned if he didn't sign off on them as complete. Overall, it was a good day! lol.
I will still probably change my driver/passenger tint because it's a little too dark, even for simply reversing at night. I may actually make it legal...or pretty close to. The rest will remain dark as hell.
