I hate our front bumper!

I just cant stand the recessed rectangle for the license plate. The holes I can understand, and plug eaisly. But WTF is there to do with that ugly flat spot? (other than cover it up with an ugly license plate)

Do the JDM bumper covers have this too?

Re: I hate our front bumper!

Re: I hate our front bumper!

Yea its required to have a front plate in ohio too but I also choose not to have one. Never had any issue with the prelude. On my accord I had 2 warnings for not having a front plate but never a ticket.

And i would totally drop the money on a Mugen front if they werent fiberglass... with my luck, some idiot would back into me and then drive off the second day I had it.

Re: I hate our front bumper!

I'm going with the Mugen front - I don't care if it's fiberglass that kit = teh sex on 5th gens

but I know what your talkin about, before I found the Mugen front and decided I was going to save up and get that I was going to repaint my bumper and that was the FIRST thing that was going to go

Re: I hate our front bumper!

Yeah, front plates are required in Texas / Colorado, where I go to school / live. I choose not to have it either. Never had any problems.

Front plates = teh gayness. I'm going to have a body shop in CO shave the rectangle + holes for the plate and possibly the rear trunk keyhole. I'll just have my plate on my dash if I ever get harassed about it.

I choose to run a front plate, therefore covering up that ugly little recess.

Re: I hate our front bumper!

3 front plate tickets in my old car...so i rock one now unfortunately. cars do look WAY sexier without one, it just gets pricey at $83 a pop in missouri.

Oh, I missed this the first time. Yes they do, considering that it's the same part. Just the US one has a couple of extra holes cut in it for sidemarkers.

Re: I hate our front bumper!

just like colin stated. the JDM bumper has it too. I'm shaving the ridge and filling the holes on my JDM front before it goes on the car. I'm glad this bothered someone else, because the wifey tells me I'm insane.
