    Front plates also provide a nice target for speed guns.

    We could go on. I'm OK if we don't.

    Therefore you aint packaging anything in those "blank" spaces because they aint blank.

    Fair enough. I didn't think a switch bank would take up THAT much space.

    Could we at least get a better surface then? A wood or aluminum look maybe? Put the Detriot skyline there or something?

    Design Office controls that-NOT engineering. Engineering controls what goes on behind the plastic.

    So it's Klause Blusse's fault (I'm pretty sure I just butchered his name....)?!?! Everyone send him emails until it changes! :p

    Klause is the head of interior design, he reports to Ralph and they all report to the beancounters.....

    “The only reason the LEOs care about front plates is so they have a reason to pull you over and question you legally, hoping you'll let something slip.”

    Have you been in this discussion at all? There are other reasons, the main ones being catching crooks caught on video cameras and having functional automated toll systems.

    You don't think toll cheats / parking cheats are breaking the law? Just curious.

    'Cause then your "Luxury SUV" ends up with an interior that looks like this - which may or may not be a problem or some people.

    Fiat has smaller HVAC setups (big surprise) and I would not be surprised if Chrysler starts downsizing their own. One solution to the stereo issue is moving the amp which has been done before but we're running out of places to put it and not lose sound quality.

    Texas has several famous stretches of Toll Roads. They read the REAR license plate, not the front. Same with red light cameras.

    Motorcycles. One plate on the rear.
    Clearly another example of their superiority!:D

    Which is fine when your system is based on scanning plates and not using windshield tags or transponders, but I digress.

    (This will make a fascinating thread when it gets moved out and on it's own. ;) )

    Texas uses those too on the Toll Roads. They scan for the transponder, and take a pic of the rear just to make sure.
