I actually don't mind the grill at all. I foresee alot of people using plastidip to color it black. I'm holding out hope that the coupe will use the "black chrome" that the new accord coupe has on it's grill and reserve the bright chrome for the sedan. Most likely the Si will have black like the concept car or they'll give it a slightly different grill treatment.Mesh would work also, just to much chrome for me as it sits now.
It'll probably be mounted on the color portion between the upper grill and lower intake. They could probably just screw on or create a clip solution frame for that area.I wonder how they'll mount the front license plate.
I'm pretty sure putting it in the windshield is considered illegal here in ohio, but people still do it, so i don't know. Guess it depends on how desperate the cop is to pull someone over that day.Having it placed behind the front windshield is what i would do, easiest thing to do that doesn't require any extra effort. Plus I doubt cops will have an issue with it, unless there are specific requirements in the front plate law where someone lives.
That's one thing I noticed when looking at the front end, with what's behind the grille there doesn't seem to be enough space for it to fully retract away and be out of sight....There's always those sneaky license plate holders that you can add to the bottom of your Civic bumper so you can lower it whenever you want.
Something like this but placed elsewhere because I don't think the civic vents are big enough for it to come out from there.
