Front License Plate

Where should I hook up my front license plate. My front bumper does not have a holder. It looks so much better without a plate but I have to put it on...

Any good ideas to keep it clean and may be try to stay away from poking holes in my bumper?

Thanks.

I would like to - but not worth the risk.
I've heard of people getting tickets EVEN WITH EURO PLATES !!!

I don't get it. How does your bumper not have a holder? Is it an aftermarket bumper?

Pics would help.

Just ziptie it to the mesh... or leave it on your dash.

just put the plate in the dash cheaper and easier

regarding the "looking for" section in your sig:

you can get basically everything from www.************ (led tails, AEs, floormats, CSLs, probably even the license plate lights too)

for the smg dome($300 ouch):

and for detailing: contact HoldenC on the forum, seems like he does some great work.

You can zip-tie it to the mesh, that's how I roll. I refuse to drill holes for the bracket I bought for the bumper!

Plus, you get the flexibility of running plateless from time to time.
