Question Altec Show n Go retractable licence plate

Anyone heard anything on these?

Link here:

Thought you could adapt it to fit in the bottom grill by removing a few of the grids at the when the plates out it sits where the plate would normally be, so just park up and put it away.

Only thing I could think could be the legality issues, but at the end of the day you have a front plate that's always visible when driving..
A man will last a generation..but a name will last until the end of time.

Re: Altec Show n Go retractable licence plate

Yep seen it a fair few times. Doesn't really suit a GP, much too scene for a punto, should think there's only a few GP's on here that could pull it off. As for legalities, i've only really seen it on US cars, pretty safe to say the plod in the UK would have something to say about it, specially as you can hide your numberplate by the push of a button!

My dads a police officer and he arrested someone just the other day for having one of these for the charge of going out equipt (meaning he could use it to hide his plates) the man lost his lisence.
