I can appreciate why you want opinions but what do you want to do? If you like it and feel it improves the appearance then keep it. Other views may be a consideration, but at the end of the day it'* how you perceive your car that really matters. Follow your gut on this and you'll be happy. If the look makes you "wanna puke" then it seems you already know what you should do.

I'm stuck 50/50

If I keep it I have to cut a hole for the license plate, which would make it hard to resell.

What if you were to mount plastic stand-offs (3/4" or thereabouts) so you could attach the license plate on the outside of the bra. You'd only have to put holes through big enough for the four screws and not have to cut it. For that matter, have some black rivets put in the bra like ones used on the corner of tarps. This way the edges wouldn't tear or enlarge. A shop that makes overhead awnings and outdoor signs could probably help out.

leave it off, not many people will be examining your car that closely in person

Iíve never been a real big fan of car bras, so Iím kinda on the fence with your car. My car looks awesome all cleaned up and my front end has had its *** kicked by rocks and such as well. But regardless ití* not surprise such a ***** has herpes.

Any hardware store would probably have nylon spacers that would work and be dirt cheap as well.
