    @zenwalker, check with the cab owners on how much cutting goes from their side on a monthly basis to our people's protecting force. ;)

    Yes. It is not legal.

    But I have been driving with that since about nothing less than 2.5 yr.

    As long as you know how to deal with the cops, you will not have much problem.

    I have not paid them a single penny till now for this.

    Cheers.

    Guys,

    Based on your suggestions, i came up with couple of other ideas and i guess ill go with Idea 3. What you think?

    Idea 1:
    Not sure how the number plate position effect the interior components.

    Idea 2:
    Although it was already discouraged by all of you, just tried out to see how it looks with a smaller number plate size. Still i feel it covers direct inflow of the air. Upon googling on this topic, came to know from few forums that its not encouraged to do so. Hence dropped.

    Idea 3:
    Based on the Abarth logo, thought ill try this out and i kinda like this. The number plate is not covering the lower grill area atleast majorly. It shares the in between area with the abarth text.
    What do you think guys??

    Zen bhai, Honestly I feel all three are spoiling the looks of the car. My personal opinion only.

    If you are really hell bent on doing the mods, I would suggest to leave the number plate position as it is and get the Abarth sticker in the space between the headlamps on the bumper.

    @zenwalker, I agree with Girish and even better is Varunrtr's idea. Getting the grill made, and using a stencil and spray gun to get this effect. The local roadside paint garage can also help you getting the nice results.
