It's not uncommon in CA to run paper tags and no plates for over a year. People do it all the time here, it's easy to do on a late model/current gen/shiny newish looking car. For those that don't get pulled over on a regular basis for moving violations, it's no big deal. Worse case scenario in CA is a fix-it ticket, which can be signed of by officer once the plates are installed.
I ran my 2008 C300 for over 12 months with no front plate and a rear paper plate (plus small registration paper folded and taped inside at bottom of windshield.). 6 months into ownership my wife was pulled over for speeding in the Benz, no fix-it ticket was given, the cop didn't think to ask how old the car was or how long the car had gone without plates.
