I am trying to decide whether to get the motorized or the nonmotorized besides the price?

Are there any benefits to getting the motorized?
If the cop sees you running without a plate he can still stop you and give you a ticket because you were not running it up when you passed by?

Is it lower than the nonmotorized because of the motor hanging down?

I have to get one because I have been stopped about 4 times with one $80 ticket. It has been giving them a reason to stop me.

i thought about getting a motorized one. but my car is to low.

imagine a cop pulls you over, flip the plate up, when he comes to the front. he will scratch his head and be like wtf.. i swore he didnt have a front plate. hehe

The only benefit to the motor would be not having to manually flip the plate up/down. I'm sure you could still get a ticket if you didn't have the plate up at the time of being pulled over. When I had mine installed, I always had it flipped up while driving. I'd lower it for photos or for car meets, etc. It's not a diversion tactic to trick a police officer. Cops aren't stupid; flipping the plate up during a traffic stop isn't going to trick anyone.

If you're looking to not drill 13mm holes in your bumper and want a cleaner look for car shows, photos, etc, then this frame is great. The price for the motorized frame is absurd, and in retrospect I should have just gotten the manual one. Aside from having something unique, you likely won't get much return out of the motorized version.

Thanks and you are probably right. I need to get either one ASAP. I have a Beatrush underpanel and I think it will mount solid to it.

Does anyone know how these work in the winter with the ice and snow?

That's cool. It would come in very handy if you're going somewhere you know cops are strict, like LAX.

It's better than drilling some giant holes in the bumper!

I prefer the stock mounting piece and location, but I do like the idea of a hideaway... for... reasons...
