If you have to run a front tag, this is the one!

Default Front License Plate

Take a look at the 'Show n Go' License Plate Frame. I put the remote controlled one on my new C6 and really like it.

Made two little angle brackets for the top of the plate. I mounted them at the top of the grille (sandwiched the grill between the bracket and bracket backing plate....no grille damage or holes to drill). I have a small aluminum angle bracket at the bottom attached to the license plate and body with double foam tape...license frame is close to, but not touching the body (again, no holes or damage). This angles the plate back under the body overhang at the top with the bottom overhanging the body slightly at the bottom. Looks good (as good as a front plate can) and better than the available brackets IMO. Cost wasn't really a factor, just didn't like what was available.

I just installed the one from Zip. IMO the ones that put the plate right square in the center look awful. The Zip one is a little offset to the driver's side, and really low. And, it is very, very easy to remove and put back on if you want to.

I have Show-n Go and as you can see I keep it tucked under, most of the time. If I get stopped, only happned once I say just washed the car and forgot to put it out.
I don't like it for the reason the car is so low it hits all the time, speed bumps, drive ways also the motor is weak and a little dirt on it and it doesn't move.

Mine is from Zip Corvette. It is removable and mounts low on driver's side.

check with your state -- here in Tx they just made fold-aways illegal.

I use a Top Flight -- good product

Mine from Zip is not a fold-away. It is held on by two detents and pulls off easily.
