i just picked mine up ( # 9202 ) on june 1st and had a fit that the dealer put the front plate on. i'm taking it off this wk. end. i guess i'll have to deal with the holes. by the looks of it i'm not the only one. i just put 200 miles on it this wk. so far i like it. i recently sold my 66 vette and bought this ssr, i'm having a ball with it. i didn't have a front plate on the vette for 26 yrs and never had a problem. i'll take my chances.
