Just copy my set-up. As long as you have the Texas plate visible, your local law enforcement(s) won't haggle ya. I used zip lock ties to "mount" the front NY plate to the spoiler, though I wanted to be careful not to cover too much for the brake cooling duct. However, there is this restaurant on my block and I believe one of the waitstaff has a 2dr Volve (maybe like 2000-2003) and she has a euro plate up front and has the front NY plate on her dashboard. Yet she doesn't get harrassed for that. If that were me, the police would be all over me like a cop in a donut factory .
