Default faceplate

Oldsman'* thread got me curious. What do you guys do with your faceplates when you park your car? Both at home and away. At home, I leave mine in b/c I live far enough off the road. Anywhere else, I take it out.

I leave it on, if they steal it, it gives me a reason to upgrade

Unless I am in a big city, I really dont care. heck I leave all my windows down and keys in the car at most houses I hang out at.

Same here. Faceplate only comes off when I go into a city like Boston.

Mine comes off and goes right underneath my driver'* seat. My car'* apparently been "broken" into once already this year, but they never did find the faceplate.

I always take it off and keep it with me, in the house, or in my pocket if at a store. I also keep my keys with me even if I go somewhere in someone else'* car.
