No one wants to run a front license plate; it ruins the lines of the Miata However, running into trouble by not having one sometimes doesn’t seem worth it and we reluctantly give in to the law. The Flip Down license plate holder is the answer. It displays or retracts in one easy motion. When motoring, pull it out and flip it up; when you’re at the car show, retract it for the clean look you admire. Now you can also choose a motorized version that operates with the push of a button from inside or outside your car. James Bond would approve!
