For the rear? or the front? If you mean the front, there's no difference between Euro and NA front bumper strips... the plates just screw into the front of the bumper. There is a bracket for the front plate, but it's just screwed into the bumper anyways.

On my Touring, I just screwed it to the plastic filler panel. For the previous Euro-import VW I had to drill my license plate as I was not going to drill into a mint rust-free hatch ...

I haven't seen any adapter plates or brackets as of just yet.

If you need a Euro rear tailgate filler panel, I have an extra so shoot me a PM.
