no idea but im guessing its highly illegal and pretty pointless
I'd have to agree with that comment - probably gonna end up being more hassle than its worth

There is a brown civic with one similar to that.. Pretty pointless but it does look quite good at shows ect. He has it coming out the top of his rear bumper, will try see if i can find some pictures as it was at ptm yesterday just havent uploaded them yet!

it was also at donny. it works on the same basis as a pop up dvd screen. when the ignition is live it lifts up out of the bumper, simple really.

all you would need is a regulator, and probably need to make some custom housing for the plate, think bout the way an electric window works, it could be done on the same principles as that, with the regulator hooked up to an ignition live.

That car looks ace, prefer it in red though. I like the idea of the number plate, very james bond-esque :)

Nar that car is horrible, dont even think the number plate coming out of the bumper looks good.

Ok yeah i do agree would look sweet if the bumpers were smoothed into the arches, but i think it looks hot in either the grey or the red :)

Well put it this way i wouldnt say no to that car :laugh:

It seems more a european style tuning, not popular over here, looks like they had changed the suspension but actually forgot to put it back in lol

Im a big fan of european styling, but it does depend on the car in question, and depend on the individual, everyone has there own opinion
