Ok before you jump down my throat i do want to note that I do have or....WILL have...JDM engine...so this wouldnt be some ricey looking car also would be adding some japanese effects to the car and subtracting US looks and accessories......but we all know they didnt make the 6th gen in Japan...Question is would it look ok? yes yes i kno at the end of the day its still my opinion but I want you alls opinion. Do you think itd look pretty nice? Heres a pic if you dont know what it would look like...

BOTTOM LINE....YES OR NO??

IMO, no. its like people putting on euro plates and then a US plate on top of it.

but like you said, in the end its up to you.

^what nodrog said, unless you dont have a front license it would be ok but if your state requires the front plate by law, i wouldnt even bother. although its a nice touch =D

YES and tell everyone else it's 'YOUR final answer, take it or leave it'.. the actual bottom line is your car was made with Japanese minds and Japanese thinking even-though it *is* a car. you'll soon realize your 'Accept it and Move on' stance will rub off...

It's hit or miss really. If you're doing the JDM engine swap I think it'd be a neat effect, only problem is 99% of the people who see your car don't know that and will just think you have some weird plate.

My buddy put a fake one on his Integra, which was 100% NOT JDM, so it was dorky, but he likes it. It's on his STI now.



My other friend put his onto his STI, then onto his new metalicy STI, then bought back his blue one and put it back on, ha.




Anyway, do it if you like it, no big dealio. :)

thats exactly what i was thinkin..others wont know...but then again?..ahh idk...itd look pretty silly to others seeing as how they have no idea that i have a JDM swap goin on..so itd almost be pretty pointless...and if what he said is true that Texas requires front TEXAS plate then its def pointless...i guess ill just get a custom TX plate.... but thanx for everyones opinions and no one bein a complete "ssa" about it...

Just curious, how come you do not know if Texas requires a front license plate and you live there, shouldn't that be an important law to know considering you have a car? Also, I vote against the JDM plate either way.

I'm sorry, I wasn't specific enough but that was what I meant a front TEXAS plate. I don't know if I'm misreading it but from my understanding you do not know if TEXAS requires a TEXAS license plate hence my question. Sorry if I misunderstood what you said though.

I'm a little lost on this response but a good way to know if it is a law is just looking at a majority of vehicles with Texas licenses plates and see if they are on the front and rear. Texas will not give you 2 identical Texas licenses plates if they only require 1 Texas license plate. Even if they aren't strict about it, it is still the law either way. I am pretty sure this law is stated somewhere in some driving handbook from Texas that is required to be read in order to take your permit exam...

Also a quick search brought me this:

This should take away any uncertainty now.
