    Default 488 Front number Plates - UK Only

    I have just bought a 488 GTB and ideally don't want to run with a front number plate. The car hasn't had the bumper drilled and had a rigid plate fitted with sticky pads. I was considering no front plate or possibly a vinyl sticky front plate fitted if I have to.

    What is anyone else's thoughts? And pictures if you don't mind of with/without

    I have had one on my F12 and soon on my 812
    My friend had one on his 488 and loved it.

    I have the carbonio on my 488

    Brilliant piece of kit. I put it on for runs on motorways or long runs on main roads, then take it off for shows or meets.

    For journeys locally I forget to put it on ;0)

    I forgot mine sometimes, I made sure it had a few dead fly's on it, so if I got stopped, when I got it out of the boot it looked like I normally used it!

    Thanks for the comments and links

    I think the Carbonio one seems to do exactly what I want and being a forgetful person I no doubt will leave it in the boot occasionally

    4000 miles and no interest from the boys in blue...

    The rear is all nice and legal. I donít think they care that much. Alternatively it could be that seeing a police officer nowadays is as rare as rocking horse do-do!
