Off center plates in NYC

So I told dealer to not drill holes in the front of my 328 msport. I have already been pulled over twice now (no tickets) driving in NYC and its only been 2 weeks since I picked up this car. Thinking about getting off center plates but wondering if even those are 100% compliant with laws? Heard about ppl getting tickets just because the plate isn't centered. Suggestions on what plate holder is cleanest and where to get them also appreciated

Off center is legal. The VTL does not specify where on the rear or front of the vehicle the plates shall be mounted, just have to be mounted and visible.

plan on getting mine from there since they have it compatible with PDC. If you have PDC check the sites you buy from first. ********** also sells one but these i think are better more adjustable.
