I agree. There's a pic of how the plate relocater looks in my signature. I think it looks way better than lowering the plate plus it's not blocking the rad vent.

My OCD won't allow the plate anywhere that's not centered.

The plate doesn't belong in the center of the bumper at all. There isn't even any space without blocking the radiator vent to begin with. It's a similar story with the Alfa Romeo Giulia where the car comes out the factory with the plate mounted to the side - Mazda has a similar grille design and should have done the same thing. Was very happy when my plate relocate kit came in the mail - Couldn't stand the look of the front end with the plate mounted even when I relocated it lower just like you guys did.

I took mine off and it's scratched.... It's not bad but I regret doing it now. Well at least now I know setting it too low will end up scracthing the bottom part of the bumper.
